How to think of failure

How many times has it cut your mind you could be setting yourself for failure? Once, twice, ..., N time.

Regardless of the number of times you have nurtured this thought, this is you on the path of doing something great for yourself.

I have learned quite a number of lessons about life and the very ones are,

  • You will fail.
  • Only your passion would get you that far.
  • Self-happiness is a result of a mindful state of reasoning.

To get started with, think of failure as a form of discipline. A guideline to do something in order to achieve something great. Every time you fail at something, that was you trying something new/unique and way out of your comfort space.

No matter how perfect you are, how precise you try to be, you will at some point fail but it cleaver to know that failure is not a setback but rather an indication that you on verge of achieving something great.

Failure should be seen as a process and if you try hard enough, you will eventually fail your way to success.

Don't be afraid to fail. Fail forward.
