Failure is a common experience of every person on earth. We learn about failure early in life as we learn to crawl, then eventually walk. We learn that we have to get back up when we fall down and that crying about it doesn’t help. Take a look at these Inspiring Quotes About Failure and remind yourself of what you learned as a child.
Failure is defined as a lack of success or falling short of a goal that you have set. The loftier the goals, the more likely we are to fail. Anyone that has ever strived and worked toward something only to come up short knows the sting of failure. But failure is not a bad thing.
It can teach us what we did wrong or at least eliminate a path that will not lead to success. Failure can point out our weaknesses and show us where we need to focus our efforts in order to improve. Sometimes, as with the baby learning to walk, it strengthens us for out next try. A baby that never falls, also never learns to walk.
As adults, if we fail enough, we begin to think of ourselves as failures. As if failing at something begins to define who we are. We all need to remember the lessons of childhood. Failing can be a good thing, it only becomes a bad thing when we fail to get back up and try again.
