Many people have a fear of failure. If you are one of them, I urge you to think about how failure helps you succeed. Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is commit to failing harder, faster, and more often. It’s the best teaching tool there is. The key is to master your fear-based thoughts. Don’t sink into defeat and self-pity. If you want to keep failing until you succeed, you need to have the right attitude.
A Bump in the Road
In the right state of mind, failure is just a bump in the road. Each fall can give you the strength to make a better approach next time. That’s how failure helps you succeed.
With each mistake, you can learn more, you can become mentally tougher, and you can clarify your vision. It can even provide the motivation to achieve your goals.
You might think, “It’s easy for you to say, ‘Keep failing until you succeed.’ You’re already successful!” Well, for more than ten years my life was failure after failure after failure. Yeah, I had some success in there too, but I lost it through bad circumstances and my own poor judgement. Listen to this video where I shared my own personal experience and lessons I gained on how I failed my way to success.
Keep Failing Until You Succeed
That’s why I’m telling you: never give up. In just a few months you can go from the worst day of your life to the best. Just figure out where you are, where you want to go, and how to get there.
Sure, people will criticize you for all sorts of reasons. They’ll try to stop you and slow you down. But if you keep a clear vision of your destination and work towards it every day, you’ll see how failure helps you succeed. Then you can be the person telling others, “Keep failing until you succeed!”
