Is Failure A Good Thing?
Failure will always appear in life and some will say that failure is needed to become successful. I agree with this standpoint because I think that if you were successful in everything you did, then you’re not pushing yourself enough nor are you exploring new avenues. You’re just stuck in your little box. Risks have to be taken in order to be successful and failure will be a part of your journey and your path to success.
Failure is not an easy thing to endure especially when it is your first time or when you truly believe you will succeed. It hurts. However, failure is very valuable in life and it allows you to grow as a human being. If you never fail, then how do you expect to grow? If you recognise that failure is only short term and it will help you in the future, then this will prove to be beneficial for your development and your success.
People are judged not by how successful they are but by how they have reacted to the failures and the obstacles in their journey to become successful. A man who I respect a lot is Cristiano Ronaldo. If you take a look at his upbringing, you would never have said that he would become the success he is today. He has failed so many times but has come back so much stronger.
I would always say to take risks and to try and put yourself in the best position you possibly can in order to become successful. With these risks, you will fail along this journey. Do not become downhearted. Instead, realise that failure is exactly what you need to reach the top.
