As many of you may already have realized facing your failures head on is much more difficult then facing your successes.  A common problem many people tend to overlook is the importance of learning from your failures so that you don’t continue to do the same thing expecting different results.

I’m sure that’s a common quote many of you have already heard, but are you really aware of why it’s so important to nurture all of your failures?  Throughout my life I’ve failed trying to do multiple things whether it was trying to ride a bike or cook one of my mom’s homemade recipes just as good as her.  Most of the time it never worked out as planned especially not the first time, but after continuously trying I was able to make the change.  A prime example of learning from your failures is to take a look at your daily household cleaning product 409.  The main reason they used the name 409 to represent their product was not because it was a cool or eye catching name but solely because it took 409 tries before they were able to get the formula correct.  After taking the time to analyze all of my past failures and the ones before me, I was able to generate 8 key points on why it is so important to nurture all your failures:

1.      Pushes you to think outside of the box

2.      Gives us unexpected experience

3.      Builds character

4.      Shows determination/perseverance

5.      Encourages the strong and disables the weak

6.      Allows you to reach your full potential and analyze your flaws

7.      Encourages improvement

8.      Emphasizes that anything is possible

I was always told that failure should be looked at as an opportunity to learn your weaknesses, improve on them and ultimately be used as a bridge to help reach your end goals.  I’ve also learned that in order to fully learn from your failures there’s a few things that you need to stand strong about.  You always need to remember that even when the going gets tough that doesn’t mean to give up, it emphasizes the need to push just a little bit harder.  Nothing ever comes easy in life and if we constantly turn away from our failures then how are we ever going to grow as a professional and in personality.  Without failure we would have no improvements to make, nothing to learn from and inability to forge our own destiny through trial and error.  A few questions to ask yourself after every failure:

1.      What caused the failure?

2.      How can I fix it?

3.      What skills do I need to gain or improve in order to fix this?

4.      What did I learn from this failure?

5.      How will I implement my new plan of action in order to ensure different results?

As Bill Gates once said, “It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.”  Success takes a great amount of determination, perseverance and willpower but is ultimately about being able to overcome your greatest failures.
