Someone once told me that failures are the pillars of success and I thought about it for a while because it didn’t make sense to me.
After thinking about the statement for a while, I was able to make sense of it.
A pillar is a vertical structure of stone or metal used to support a building.
That means we can say that failure is a structure that aids success.
Failing is part of life and we all fail at a point in our life.
Even a baby fails when it makes the first attempt to walk but over time as the baby keeps trying, it learns from its failure and can walk.
Failure teaches you how to sustain your success
Learning how to maintain success is a very important knowledge we all need in life.
Back then I used to see footballers who were well paid squander all their money to buy cars and host parties.
After some years after their retirement, they get broke again because they have not Learned how to manage their success.
Being successful is good but being able to sustain that success is very important. Laziness sets in when you achieve a bit of success, you want to rest and take some time off.
People that have failed before and do not want to fail again will learn how to sustain their success, they will also work harder just to make sure they repeat the same mistakes of the past.
Failure gives you passion to succeed
Let me ask you a question. What gives you the passion to want to succeed?
For some people, the passion to succeed is birthed from wanting to help their loved ones.
For some others, the passion is birthed out of wanting to add value to others.
And to some others, the passion to be successful is a revenge mission for failure and those that have seen them fail.
I don’t know what gives you the passion to succeed but I can tell you that failure can propel you to succeed if you handle it with the right attitude.
Don’t let failure weigh you down instead let it give you the passion to make you succeed so that you can prove yourself right.
Failure gives you a reason to succeed.
Failure teaches you how not to fail again
One of the things failure does for you is that it teaches you how not to fail again.
It is only a fool that keeps going back to his vomit. It is only a fool that keeps repeating the same mistakes.
When you make a mistake and think about it, you will find out a better way you could have used to get a successful result.
The issue is that most people don’t think after failing, they get emotional and start feeling down.
When you fail, don’t get too emotional about it instead, you should analyze your mistake and see what you did wrong so that you can correct it next time.
Failure teaches you how to succeed
One of the best ways to learn how to succeed is by overcoming failure.
Experience is also a good teacher, failure is also part of the experience that teaches us in life.
Don’t feel bad when you fail.
Learn from your mistakes and take action and that is what makes successful people who they are.
