There are times when we ask ourselves: Why is life so unfair? We work hard continuously, yet things never go our way. Here are some lessons that will help you realize that it is indeed okay to fail sometimes.
1. We all fail at times.
Failure is inevitable, we can't control it! As J.K. Rowling once said, "It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default."
2. It reveals your weaknesses.
When you have a better idea of your weaknesses, you will be able to learn how to convert them into strengths. As failure reveals your weaknesses, it helps you become stronger as well.
3. Failure makes you stronger.
After you've failed once, twice, or countless of times, you won't be so afraid of it anymore. Fear is your biggest enemy because it will keep you from going beyond what you think you can actually do. Remember, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger!
4. It helps you appreciate success.
What's better than achieving success is knowing that you've worked hard for it. If you've faced a number of challenges along the way, you will realize that all the hard work you've put into achieving the task will mean nothing compared to the feeling you'll get when you've accomplished what you had to do.
5. You take more chances.
You have to use that motivation to push yourself to take more chances and learn new things. It's time to quit playing it safe and start taking more risks!
