3 Benefits of Failure In Life

You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.

-- Johnny Cash

Does anyone want to experience the bitter taste of failure? Of course not!

Indeed, the only thing that you’ve noticed is the negative effects that failure brings. But, most people don’t seem to understand the importance of taking a fall. In fact, the best teacher that we have in our life is FAILURE.

Do you want to know why? Let’s unveil the benefits that failure gives.

But first, let's get to know FAILURE

According to Merriam Webster failure is “lack of success” and “omission of occurrence or performance”. These meanings only talk about our incapability to reach success, which is absolutely hard for anyone to stomach.

Failure causes guilt, depression, emotional turmoil and regrets which inflicts for a long time. This also affects your actions, emotions, and thoughts in several ways. But it can also serve to provide you a way out of the mire.

Just look at these benefits

1. It’s your number one teacher

Failure has done a lot of things in your life. It provides you values to learn and remember. It has also taught you to value the smallest things you took for granted. It’s a true experience that gives you a lesson in order for you to understand the reality of life and how you can reshape it into the next best thing.

2. It strengthens you

Failure is like an energy drink that gives you a much-needed kick to keep you going. Even the strongest person on earth can be torn down by failure. But when you leverage it positively, failure can increase your will to strive and push beyond your limits.

3. It creates an opportunity for you

Every failure paves a new opportunity which gives you a reason to learn. Failure has given you a lot of realizations from “what you’ve done wrong” to “why didn’t I do this.”
