Learning from Failures

Most people think that failure is bad and success is good. I want to help you change your thinking about that if you fall into that category. I will give you that failure isn’t fun and success is, but I think the following is true:

Both failure and success are good... if you know what their specific purposes are.

Of course we know that success is good, but why? Success is good because it confirms things for us.

  • Success confirms our plans.
  • Success confirms our decisions.
  • Success confirms our resources.
  • Success confirms our strategies.
  • Success confirms our hunches.
  • Success confirms our teamwork.
  • Success confirms our risks.
  • Success confirms a lot of things!
So when you are successful, ask yourself the following question: What does this success confirm in my mind?

Now, what about failure? What is the role of failure and how in the world can it be GOOD?
  • Failure’s role is to teach us. We learn from failure.
  • Failure teaches us that we need to change our plans.
  • Failure teaches us that we need to change our decisions.
  • Failure teaches us that we need to change our resources.
  • Failure teaches us that we need to change our strategies.
  • Failure teaches us that we need to change our hunches.
  • Failure teaches us that we need to change our teamwork.
