Why You Should Want To Fail

By on March 12, 2018

Most people aren’t living their ideal life. That’s not a secret. What is a secret is that you should want to fail.

People go their entire lives afraid of failing and live a life that isn’t exciting. Do you want to go your entire life achieving nothing? Do you want to come and go with no one knowing your name?

When you go to school, you’re told failing is bad and advised against it. Yet, if you want to achieve success, you will need to fail. Look at anyone who has ever become successful, what is something they have in common? All of them failed at one point in their life and overcame it.

Achieving your dreams will be riddled with false starts. You’ll take one step forward and then have to take two steps back. There will be circumstances that arise you couldn’t have imagined in your wildest dreams. The quicker you fail, the quicker you get to achieving success.  

Think about any great author or businessman, they didn’t become that way overnight. It was through years of hard work, dedication, and most of all, failing.

You should embrace failure in your life. If you write a terrible book or start a business that doesn’t work out then you know what doesn’t work! Your goal should be to never repeat the same mistakes you made previously. Failure can be one of the greatest ways to learn and can shorten your learning curve. You can read all the books but there’s nothing quite like real-world experience.

Next time you fail, don’t become discouraged! Understand you’re on the right path towards success. Reflect on your failure and what you can do to improve next time.

When you fail enough, you’ll learn failure isn’t something that’s scary. You’ll realize it’s an essential part of becoming successful. How great will it feel when you overcome failure and finally achieve success?
