Day Thirty-Five..#Stand Up To Failure..

Encouraging Quote on Failure..

Again, you have to face your fear. Because it is only then that you discover the thing that billions of people throughout history have discovered before you. Failure won’t kill you. Nor will being wrong. The sky will not fall down. That’s just what people that haven’t faced their fear yet think.

The thing is to frame failure from being something that makes your legs shake to something useful and important for the growth of your self-confidence and your overall growth as a human being. Here are four ways failure can help you out:

You Learn
Instead of seeing failure as something horrible you can start to view it more as a learning experience. When standing in the middle of failure, you can ask yourself questions like: What’s awesome about this situation? What can I learn from this situation?

You Gain Experiences You Could Not Get Any Other Way
Ideally, you probably want to learn from other people’s mistakes and failures. That’s not always easy to do though. Sometimes you just have to fail on your own to learn a lesson and to gain an experience no one can relate to you in mere words.

You Become Stronger
Every time you fail you become accustomed to it. You realise more and more that it’s not the end of the world. And, again, you get desensitised. You can handle things that would have been very hard to handle a few years back. Failing can also have an exhilarating component because even though you failed you at least took a chance. You didn’t just sit on your hands doing nothing. And that took quite a bit of courage and determination.

Your Chances of Succeeding Increases
Every time you fail you can lean and increase your inner strength. So every failure can make you more and more likely to succeed.

“Don’t listen to anyone who tells you that you can’t do this or that. That’s nonsense. Make up your mind, you’ll never use crutches or a stick, then have a go at everything. Go to school, join in all the games you can. Go anywhere you want to, But never, never let them persuade you that things are too difficult or impossible.”
