Failure and success are often seen as opposites of each other.
However, failure isn’t the enemy of success, but rather an important part to success.
Failure can appear as disheartening and upsetting, but failure, mistakes, and accidents all play a vital role in helping people grow.
Even though failure has the potential to hold you back, don’t let it.
Try a few minor adjustments.
An example of this is Stephen King.
Today, Stephen King is critically known for his horror novels. Before his first book Carrie was accepted, it got rejected 30 times. Time and time again, Stephen revised his book ultimately getting published which led to his breakout career.
Come up with another idea.
An example of this is Bill Gates.
Originally, Bill gates came up with a product that analyzed data through traffic tapes; except, it didn’t work. So, he decided to try something else and went on to
Perseverance is key.
An example of this is Steve Jobs.
Steve Jobs founded Apple, but after an unsuccessful product launch, the company kicked him out. He later went on to create another company. Evidently, Apple purchased the new company and brought Steve Jobs back, launching Apple’s breakthrough products the iPod, iPhone, and iPad.
Ultimately, failure is an opportunity to learn from our experiences.
An example of this is when we learned to walk.
We learned to walk because of the times we fell. We learned from our experience, not our failure.
Learning to view our failures as experiences, lead to success.
If Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Stephen King had given up after their failure, they wouldn’t be where they are today.
To become successful, they went through an experience of failure, but they kept going.
So, the opposite of success isn’t failure, it’s quitting.
