Failure gets a bad rap!

Why are we afraid of failure, and why don’t we think of failure as positive?  Didn’t Thomas Edison say “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”  Isn’t failure our greatest teacher, so shouldn’t it be celebrated? Shouldn’t we celebrate people who have tried and failed, encouraging them to keep going; encouraging them to try a different angle, to look for a different solution, or to completely regroup and to go down a different path, but always…, to keep going!

So let’s look at failure as Thomas Edison does and not be afraid to try something, or get down because something didn’t work – lets celebrate, and look at it as a gift.  A gift – of what not to do, and see it as bringing us one step closer to living our perfect lives.

As for me, I am going to consider myself a huge success, because I know a million things – not to do😉

Just a thought…

  1. Goldi,

    Your point is so true. If we focus on learning from our mistakes and failures, we know better in the future what not to do. This limits are ability to fail again bringing us that much closer to success. Society has become inundated with too many not willing to do what others say can’t be done. Notice I didn’t use the word “try” for trying will not allow you to reach your goal, only doing and accomplishing will you then be a success in your endeavor.
