[Blogging Mindset] Embrace Failure1 min read

Have you heard the phrase fail, fail often, and fail quickly?

The truth is that we do not learn by doing something perfectly, but rather by doing it wrong over and over again. We fail until we figure out how to do it perfectly.

Also, it makes sense to fail as early as possible, so you can learn from those mistakes.

It’s the bloggers who enjoyed moderate success early on that never evolve. They get stuck doing the same things over and over again, never to inspire more than a handful of folks.

If you want to be successful as a blogger, you must embrace failure, you must appreciate the frustration you feel when things don’t quite turn out the way you wanted them to.

Also, keep in mind that failure is the best opportunity to learn and grow.

We only grow strong with the aid of adversity. We learn nothing from success.

When (and not if) something goes wrong ask yourself one simple question: “What can I learn from this?”

When you feel you have arrived at a dead end, ask yourself what if this obstacle is in fact a new way that has yet to reveal itself.

The obstacle is the path. Adversity is what makes the difference between wannabes and those who succeed.

You know that terrible, terrible cliche, the master has failed more times than the novice has even started? Well, like all cliches, it’s true. So damn true.

Anybody that has failed spectacularly only to go on to bigger and better things will tell you they wouldn’t have it any other way.

We need to embrace and overcome the agony of failure to ensure fantastic long-term success.

Without the struggle, the victory is not worth having.

    Absolutely true! I also think failure cultivates humility, which ends up working in your favor as a successful leader. When you do make it to the top, humility breeds compassion and a positive vision people are magnetized towards. Thanks for sharing. Blessings!

      I believe failure inspires us to do more hard work and keeps us on the ground

    I couldn’t agree with you more! And I have been there. My view was if it was not perfect I’d failed. So it was very easy to fail at most things from my perspective. Now hopefully I have learned… True failure is only when you don’t get back up to try again. It is worth getting back up. That’s when I learn the most. Building confidence. Thank you.

    Thank you for this. Failure is definitely one of the best teachers. It’s not a fun emotion to handle, but it is important to experience.

      One of my favorite quotes.

      The obstacle is the way.
