"Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success."
- C. S. Lewis
When you fail at something, it's like taking a punch to the face. It’s going to hurt for a while (sometimes too long) and it might leave some bruises or scars for the rest of your life. Our experiences of failure sometimes make us scared to try again, and that fear can also imply that we have given up. The cycle never stops, it goes on until we are determined to change it.
Technically, we fail in many things we do daily, namely eating too much when we're on a diet, not exercising when we've already paid for a gym membership, promising ourselves to wake up 10 minutes earlier to get some reading done, but the question unasked is why that has to be a ‘failure’? Only in competitions that failures exist, and life most often is not a competition. At the end of the day, we need to learn how to embrace failure and learn to take small steps. The more we shy away from failures, the more it will haunt us.
Failing is just experiencing the ugly side of things, when you've seen everything you needed to see, you're ready to push for the win again. One should never be scared of failing but instead be encouraged to go fail at something he/she wants to be good at, the sooner we fail, the more chance we have to succeed and master what we want to be good at.
We're all several failures away from success, few meters away from the gold mine
It's important to not give up easily, no matter how hard, frustrated it is or how drained and tired you are, because life goes on and so should we.
Always remember that, we're all several failures away from success, few meters away from the gold mine, so keep going.
