#1 Failure is an important part of learning. You fall many times before you learned to even walk properly. #2 Failure is a sign of creativity. World’s biggest adventures are the outcomes of world’s biggest failures. Famously, Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before inventing the light bulb. Remember his quote: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” #3 Failure makes you humble & generates empathy for others. Once you have the taste of failure, you’ll be in a better position to understand the pains of others. #4 Failure lets you truly enjoy the success. Those who have not failed in their lifetime, or claimed so, are the most unfortunate people. If you have failed, take pride in it. It shows that you’ve at least tried something meaningful in your life. #5 Failures makes you stronger. Once you’ve faced difficult situations in life, you become stronger to face even more worst situations. #6 Some people got their biggest success just because of their failures. Take APJ Abdul Kalam for example. He failed to fulfill his most cherished dream of becoming a pilot. Later, he turned out to be President of India – much higher position than a pilot (no offence to pilots. Take it positively). You never know! Your worst failure may turn out to be the way to your biggest success. #7 You tell us. Yep! You tell us why we should allow ourselves to fail. After all, your words count here at Minute Crunch!
