The road from where you are to where you want to be is through the gate of failure. Failure is the foundation upon which success is built. Failure teaches us something if we care to pay attention.
People want to succeed but they don’t want to fail first. Failure is part of life. It is part of the whole business of success. You cannot succeed without failing first. It sounds funny, but it is true.
Don’t let failure stop you from pursuing your dreams. Don’t let failure stop you from reaching your goals. No matter what is standing in your way, no matter what you are going through right now, don’t doubt yourself. Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from pursuing your dreams. Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from living your life.
Malcolm Forbes said, “Failure is success if we learn from it.” If you want to succeed, you must pay attention to failure. It has something to teach you. Failure tells us that there is still lots of work to be done. It reveals our flaws to us. It tells us that we are trying to make things happen. It tells us that we are brave, and that we are trying to get out of our comfort zones. So if you fail at something, be happy. Don’t beat yourself up. Go home, get ready, and launch again.
And you will succeed.
