What is failure? Do we really understand what failure is?

Failure, according to B. F. Skinner, “A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.” When you fail at something, you are not a failure. You are just trying to find a better way to do something. The real failure is when you stop trying, when you give up, when you call yourself a failure.

People are not living their lives because they don’t want to fail. They don’t want to embarrass themselves. People fail in life because they set unrealistic goals for themselves. They want to be perfect at what they do. But, the reality is, you cannot be perfect at everything that you do.

People don’t want to fail because it hurts. According to Napoleon Hill, “… failure breaks down one’s morale, destroys self-confidence, subdue enthusiasm, dulls imagination, and drives away definiteness of purpose.”

Here are four things you should know about failure, and how to embrace them:

Failure leads to success. The road to success is through the iron gate of failure. When you fail at something, check what happened, think how you can make it better, learn from it, and move on. You cannot get to success without multiple failures. If you want to succeed, love to fail. Learn to fail, and fail well.

Failure is an opportunity to grow. According to Napoleon Hill, “Failure is a blessing in disguise. There is a solution to every legitimate problem, no matter how difficult the problem may seem.” When you fail, take it as an opportunity to learn more about it. Failure is not a weakness, it is a strength.

Failure is a temporary defeat. Failure is not a permanent thing unless you make it so. Failure is a part of the journey to finding true success. If you don’t fail, you cannot learn. You learn by failing.

Failure is not real. Failure is not real if learn from it. It is real if you fail to learn something new from your mistakes. Sometimes, what we call failure is not really failure, but a temporary stop. If you want to succeed, make your failures temporary, not permanent.

Failure is not the end of life, it is the beginning of life. It is the beginning of success, growth, and happiness.
