Failure is the key to success; each mistake teaches us something. — Morihei Ueshiba
The kind of self- protective mindset that dictates that we only undertake things that we know we won’t fail at is a barrier to moving forward. Holding onto that prevents us from taking risks and failing. That’s unfortunate because failing is a lesson in learning how to succeed.
All in all, it comes down to how you take failure. Either you can make it a step to success or a retreat from it. It’s all within you. Remember: you are what you make of yourself – someone who failed and gave up or a failure to success story, the choice is yours. — Ritu B. Pant
The difference between successful people (risk takers) and others is that when they experience failure, they do not allow it to keep them down. Successful people have a mindset that distinguishes them from others. Successful people don’t give their power away by choosing to be overly sensitive to what others think of them. They don’t give their power away by choosing to be “set in their ways” and resistant to change. Instead they are flexible, resilient and adept at making changes.
Successful people understand failure to be a valuable lesson that they learn and benefit from. Rather seeing criticism or failure as stumbling blocks they see them as stepping stones that bring them closer to achieving their goals. They accept every failure as a lesson in how to succeed in the future and then they make the adjustments required to achieve success.
Next time you think about quitting your online ventures after a failure, think again! It just might be the thing you needed to give yourself a boost. — Ritu B. Pant
