Someone I know, or rather someone that I used to know had every aspect of their life perfect. I don't know if it was my perception or just an observation about them. But I thought to myself "that is so sad that everything is so perfect for you."

If life was perfect in every way for me, I wouldn't be where I am today. Yeah, I am happy I had all those failures; all those embarrassments; all those difficult times; all those vulnerable times, and especially the times when I have felt that I don't have true friends.

Because, thanks to all those situations, I am strong today for having survived all of it, and yet being able to smile and laugh. And most importantly take on a new batch of challenges and fight it out every day.

I am glad my life had pitfalls for these were the real teachers; the real school that taught me about life and its nuances. Making me realise failure has many synonyms. Here are a few:

Perseverance:

If not for my failed attempts, I wouldn't believe in something called perseverance. Perseverance isn't a myth. It actually works. Not giving up and trying hard, be it even to just be happy, is something that would yield results...yield positive results.

Change is around the corner:

Every time you get comfortable with something, change will visit you. Well this was great when bad times had to change. That's what I told myself when difficult times surface. Life has to change, and this situation that you are in today will also change for the better.

Strength:

Sometimes when you are going through something that is ripping your heart, or leaving you in an empty space; you will struggle for patience to see how things turn out. But most often, you will realise that with patience, you will see a bad situation slowly turn a leaf. When you have survived it, you will later realise the strength you had without your realisation. Hold on to that. You have earned it afterall.

Courage:

Being able to smile during tough times demands courage. Thanks to those tough times, you would be surprised to see the courage you have had.

My dad once told me while trekking to never look up at the path you have to travel. Turn back and look at the path you have successfully walked through. It will give you confidence in yourself, and will help you catapult your efforts.

Having said all this, failures are demotivating, but they are good. Embrace them for they will teach you lessons, and they will take you to a place where you would be happy, successful and content. Every breaking relationship; every failed venture and every failed attempt all have moulded you for who you are today.

Be happy to fail, for its an indication that success will soon visit you.

I'd had so many failures that even today I'm sometimes apprehensive to try my luck (in non-monetary) areas for the fear of failure!
I'm slowly coaxing myself out of this.. Your article is an additional help pushing me along the way!
Great article about loving failure. The secret is to not lose faith in yourself as you develop life skills.
When I was growing up in a middle class area the boys from the rich family up the road had everything laid out for them perfectly. Driven to school in a new car while I rode for 40 mins in the rain and then tried to study in a wet and cold uniform at school. Failure was a big part of my early years so I know it well.
The boys up the road inherited millions of dollars early in life as their hard working Dad passed away. The easy life sheltered by wealth left them unprepared for the real world which soon chewed them up and left them bankrupt. I on the other hand I rolled up my sleeves clenched my fists and went forwards to success.

Good on you :)so you are like me too, thinking failures are good for life
