“If you learn from defeat, you haven’t really lost.” — Zig Ziglar
Failure teaches you in ways success can’t. It shapes you as a person. It makes you resilient. If we can cultivate a stronger relationship with failure, we can make success that much closer.
Failing at something often brings new experiences and opportunity that can enhance you at whatever you failed at. Failing helps you realize reality which can lead to greater future success. Having another opportunity at something can be crucial in life when trying to reach your goals or to accomplish something important to you.
We’ve all learned new skills in life and, we learned them only after first failing to do them properly. We know this is true, but we’re all human and it’s human to hate failure. I think it’s especially difficult for us as teenagers. Somehow, because we’re getting older, we feel we should learn more quickly and succeed more quickly than we did when we were younger. It should be seen for what it is, a step on the road to success.
