Do Not Be Afraid of Failure

Do Not Be Afraid of Failure

See each “failure” as a lesson. For Thomas Edison, each failed attempt, each rejection, were key steps on his path to success.

AS Henry Ford stated: “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”

The best leaders and some of the most influential people were friendly to those around them. People liked them. They wanted them to do well. This is key to good leadership.

Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and others shaped the world. They did not sit "back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things."

Focus on doing something you love.

When you’ve found what you’re passionate about, you get the motivation to keep you moving.

If you strongly believe and desire something, you might already have an idea of how to get there. Learn to trust your own instincts.

Trust in your ability to succeed. 

Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Approach problems as tasks that need to be completed. If you stay positive, setbacks won't affect you so much.

It’s the easiest thing in the world to let failure keep you down.

The only way to push on is if you will not be moved or dissuaded from your goals.

You’ll never become successful if you don’t work towards your goal in life. True success comes from hard work.

If people think their job will lead to success, they might spend too much time on it and neglect other areas of their life.

Keep a balance between work, rest, health and life. 

To truly do things differently (and all successful people did things differently), you need to think differently. If you have a new idea, celebrate it.

When surrounded by doubts, giving up can actually seem like a good idea. Don't let those thoughts discourage you.

Success has to be something you can imagine yourself achieving.

Believe in yourself. Keep dreaming.

1. Viewing failure to be precious

Any successful individual will tell you that failing is not only essential but also advantageous. But only if you know how to use it to your advantage. Any successful person learns the first lesson that failure is unavoidable.
