Is Failure A Good Thing?

Is Failure A Good Thing Picture
Everyone experiences failure but does failure affect us negatively or positively?

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.

    A Child has No Concept of ‘Success’ or ‘Failure’ (‘If’ by Rudyard Kipling) until Bullied, Berated and Beaten Up Physically, Psychlogically and Soulfully by Well Meaning Parents and Other Authority who really have NO FUCKING IDEA!!! it’s PRETTY FUCKING OBVIOUS!!! a Child Knows when to Quit if UnEnthusiastic, UnWilling and UnInterested; yet The Grown Ups insist “You WILL!!! Stick With This or Else 😠 !!!” instead of Asking “OK, what ARE You Passionate About; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that We Can Do That πŸ€” ?” – Diamond Hard


  2. Hello to you Kamran, totally stand in agreement with you because if we don’t fall we don’t know how to get back up. Nor will we know how to face adversity when it comes if we’ve never experienced it. So great point great article.

    • Exactly, I am glad that you agree with this message! It is a great mentality to have and I shall write my next blog post tomorrow so stay tuned πŸ™‚

    • I do believe that failure can always be a lesson, it is just our mentality that we need to work on. Thank you for taking the time to comment. I shall write my new blog post tomorrow so stay tuned πŸ™‚

  3. Yes indeed! Failure is only part of our journey towards success. It is not the reason to simmer down but to continue believing that there will be stunning views on the top of the mountain after those very dangerous trails. Just like failures, they are like trails that impede us to reach our goals in life. But if we pursue our dreams no matter what happen along the way, then eventually sweet success will surely follow…

  4. Embracing failure has been a life-changer for me. I now expect to fail until I win and if I don’t win then at least I learned something wasn’t for me and had fun doing it.

    • Yesss! Love this attitude, if you don’t succeed, then you learn. Keep up this mentality and you will go far! Stay tuned because I will be writing a blog post tomorrow πŸ™‚

  5. β€œThere is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”

    Failing is not a problem, not starting is (but if things are going to fail … make them fail quickly!)

    • Thank you for your inquisitive comment, it is much appreciated πŸ™‚ I shall check out your blog and comment as well. I will write my next blog post tomorrow so stay tuned πŸ™‚
