If you make a mistake while doing a math, you know that's not the way to do it. Same goes with failure. To do a sum correctly, you need to know how not to do it. To be successful in life, you need to know how not to be successful. This is why failure is important.
Failure is a teacher
Our failures will teach us to take better decisions. It will teach us many human characteristics like patience, empathy, human relationship and self-importance. Failure as a teacher will increase our knowledge, amplify our intelligence. As Henry Ford rightly said, "Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently." Look at all the failures in your life; you will see it made you more intelligent.
Failure is a detour, not a dead end
Imagine yourself walking through the streets of a new city. If you get lost, you will eventually take a detour and find your destination, you will not sit and wait on the middle of the road, right? Up until the moment you fail, you have made progress. This progress will be added to your bag of experience. Failing in something will only show you the road not to take, will give you the hint of taking an alternate route, but failing is not the end of the road.
Failure is part of success
Failure is not opposite of success, failure is a part of success. It is the road signs we miss while heading towards our destination. So, we learn from the failure, know what not to do, and shift our gears. As an entrepreneur, I have failed many times, failed in projects, in making decisions and in investments. But being brutally honest, every failure has made me better in what I do. I would not be justified if I did not credit my success to the failures I have been through.
Failure triggers action
For some, failure is the end of the world, and for some, failure is a trigger to do more. Every time I have failed in something I really want to achieve, I came back doubling the effort and vigour to attain my goal. You only fail when you stop trying. There is no loss if you fail; there is loss when you stop going ahead after failing. So, try again, fail again, fail better, but do not give up. From my little experience as an entrepreneur, this is why I relish the thought of failing so that I can enjoy the sweetness of winning .
