Success always starts with failure. Successful people tell their stories about how they failed and how they turned this failure into a success, and one day you will too. When you find yourself asking, “Why do I keep failing?” then continue reading.
Winston Churchill said, “Success is not the end, failure does not kill: it is vital.” Our courage is built up by the actions we choose to take in the face of our own failures and thoughts.
The road to success is not straightforward, and getting things done is always unrealistic. Failure is a learning experience that shows us how to do things, and gives us the opportunity to continue to correct what we are doing wrong until we correct it.
Your failure with your learning opportunities. Thomas Edison said,
“I have never failed. I’ve found 10,000 methods that don’t work. ”
He found a method that worked in one of his most famous works, and that was an electric light bulb.
Failure gives you the opportunity to grow, become smarter and smarter than ever. However, if you do not take advantage of opportunities to be given your failure, then you will never be able to achieve the success you want in life.
Here are 7 reasons why you may not feel like a complete failure. Focus on these 7 reasons and you will find that instead of dealing with constant failure, you will be gaining more in life.
- Fear of Failure
Fear of failure paralyzes us. When we feel like we are always failing, we begin to see failure as something designed to punish us . This is not a good idea to have when given a chance. If you are afraid of failure, you will set yourself up to fail before you start.
- Seeking Very Quickly
Social Media has a huge impact on the way we live our lives. There are thousands and thousands of people on social media who describe their amazingly successful lives with very short videos and many pictures of their material wealth: bright houses, cars, planes, clothes, shoes, boats, and the list goes on.
We are constantly bombarded with the idea that success is in the palm of our hand and that all we have to do is find it.
The message we are repeatedly told is that you can have anything if you dream big. That is the first mistake we make – we go too far and dream of incredibly challenging goals, and when we do not get the results we expect, we become very frustrated and give up.
No problem pointing up and dreaming big. All you need to do is give them an outlet and the support they need to keep going.
Quick results are not realistic, so be aware that your goals for reaching the top of the mountains are realistic and attainable, one step at a time, not 100 steps at a time.
- Lack of Planning
“If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” -Benjamin Franklin
Lack of planning works in conjunction with demanding much faster. To achieve your dreams and goals in life, you need to have a plan. There is no prescriptive drug that will stop the flow of emotions, though their effects can be curtailed. A plan gives you direction, keeps you on track, and keeps you accountable.
A good plan will have achievable, measurable, and specific goals in place that will bring you closer to achieving your goals. Also, think about and prepare for the challenges and challenges you may face, and have a plan in place to deal with them.
- Giving Very Easy
Giving the first reason why people fail. The road to success is difficult, and there are many bumps along the way. When you experience failure or rejection, it is easier to stop.
The next time you want to quit, remember that it is not your fault. Do not attach your success to a failed project or rejection experience.
Reset your mind and use your free will to decide what you will do next – no one is stronger than you!
- Resistant to Seeking Advice and Help
“Never let your self-esteem get the better of you when you need help. We have all been helped at some point in our lives. ”Edmond Mbiaka
The journey to achieving your dreams and goals in life cannot be done alone – this is not a journey alone! One reason you may feel that you fail at everything you do is because you are reluctant to get an answer from people or to seek help.
Positive feedback is important to hear as it gives you a different perspective on what you are doing and what you wish to achieve. What you believe may be right, some may not, and that may be all right. However, it is always good to know why they feel that way.
In cases where you are experiencing difficulties and failures, it is important that you seek answers and advice. What they tell you may not sound good to you, but if it is a positive response, it will help you gain insight and learn valuable lessons about how to move forward in your life rather than go back.
- Not Learning From Past Mistakes
Important lessons are learned from the mistakes you make. However, these lessons do not apply if you choose to ignore them. The result of ignoring those lessons is that you will repeat the same mistakes over and over until you finally get that message – or not!
Do not hide your mistakes. Spend time thinking about what went wrong with you and what you learned from that experience. Find out what didn’t work and find out what you can do to avoid similar mistakes in the future.
- Unbelief in You
You can be the smartest and most talented person in the room, but if you don’t believe in yourself, failure is likely to dominate your life.
What separates successful people from unsuccessful people is that successful people believe in them. They believe that they can achieve the goals they set and that they can meet the challenges and challenges they will face.
If you are always looking for reasons why things don’t work out for you or you have a habit of blaming anyone or anything other than yourself, that is a sure sign that you should work on your faith.
Once you start supporting yourself and believe in yourself and what you can gain, you will not be less likely to give up. Instead, your belief will encourage you to find a solution that works for you.
Our ability to choose is the only thing we can truly control. We can choose to allow failure to discourage us, or we can choose to use the experience to fail to strengthen our resolve to move forward.
Once you have chosen to take action and eliminate these seven reasons that prevent you from living a successful life, you will find that success replaces failure, and you will naturally have more confidence in what you can achieve.
“Failure is just a chance to start over, this time smartly.” -Henry Ford
