Most people will never become truly successful. The pull towards mediocrity is too strong. As David Schwartz once penned, “All around you is an environment that is trying to pull you down to Second-Class Street.”
Most people will never escape the pull. Much of the thinking around us is small-minded. It doesn’t have to be this way. But you have to embrace the fact that you’re going to fail in your new life, again and again. It’s the natural requirement for entering into a difficult new arena and learning new skills.
Most people hate failure. They run from it. In their eyes, if they suck at something, it means they suck. Since their self-worth is tied directly to their performance, any failure is proof they aren’t good enough.
But this is exactly why they’ll stay in mediocrity. If they aren’t willing to fail, they aren’t able to learn from their mistakes. If they never learn, they’ll never grow and develop into something more.
“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.”
If you’re not willing to fail, you guarantee you’ll stay average-at-best.
Human beings are wired to achieve bigger and better things, even when they have a pretty good, steady life.
Take the challenge. Follow the evolution. Live a new life—one that works for the new version of you. If you want to grow into an extraordinary version of yourself, you must be willing to fail—a lot.
Failure brings humility. It develops your character. It helps you laugh at your mistakes and not take things so seriously. Like a plant placed from the shade into sunlight, your growth rate will accelerate double in multiplication.
As a writer I do face problems of error, grammatical errors, and so on, but I can’t give up in writing because it increases and extends my thinking muscles
Failure is an opportunity to try it again later, there’s no success without failure
Failure is the king of success but don’t forget that failure is not a personality but events and processes to success
