I’ve failed, not once but many times. And I’ll still fail. Sometimes we think that failure is as a result of lack of preparation. Well, this might be true in school examinations. But in other endeavors, failure is a must. Because success is not guaranteed. No one can say what he/she is doing right now is a sure bet. No matter how prepared you are, there are chances that you’ll fail.
Failure is part of us. You can’t escape from it. We’ve been dealing with failure ever since we’re toddlers. Did you remember how many times you fall while learning how to walk? A lot.
What did we do then? We picked ourselves up and try again. That’s the word success loves: try. When you fail, try again. Success is the accumulation of failures with perseverance. In fact, the more you fail at something, the better you become at it. Fail your way to success, dearie.
Don’t let temporary failure stop you from trying again. For behind every success story there are thousands of failures. What you do when you fail is all that counts. Whether you learn from it and try again, or you stop trying for the fear of failure. I urge you to try something today, fail at it, learn from it, and try again. Go!
