Let failure not defeat you

“Failures are inevitable part of our journey, treat them as learning experiences to sharpen your tools to achieve success.”

Success and failure go hand in hand and that’s the reality of life. Failure at times can be of low magnitude and sometimes of higher. The question here is “ should we stop pursuing our dreams or use it as a stepping stone to go ahead ?” During failures, people around us become pedantic and start advising without knowing our mental state. Though their intentions maybe good, but the extent of physical, mental and sometimes even spiritual pain is known only to the person who is in the middle of the storm.


Those who accept failures are actually intelligent because they try to find the reasons and ameliorate the situation. In my several years of experience, I have realised that to successfully execute a project a clear studying of the situation, planning, briefing, rehearsal, debriefing and again rehearsal goes a long way or delete the points observed during the rehearsal and then the final implementation. This kind of approach improves the situation and the chances of failure also reduces.

Accepting failures is one part of story but what next?? Without getting demoralised, introspecting, analysing, improving and standing up again with new energy and mind set can be a game changer.

An intelligent person is the one who keenly observes the situation. Keep note of the points which were responsible for the failure and improve upon them to be successful. So prepare for a journey which may have ups and downs but be intelligent and positive to overcome the failures before they defeat you.
