If you fall, you need to stand up. It’s very simple, but sometimes it’s not that easy.
If you have a small failure, stand up a liitle bit. If you have a big failure, make a big stand up. It’s very simple, but sometimes it’s not that easy.
We tend to think that the opposite of “Success” is “Failure”. But is it so black and white?
Please take a look at the following three quotes to think about the question:
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10000 ways that won’t work.”ーThomas Edison
“We learn from failure, not from success.”ーBram Stoker (author of Dracula)
“If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.”ーKen Robinson (educator)
I think most of us, if not everyone, can agree with those quotes from their own experiences.
The word “failure” sounds so negative whereas “learning” is quite positive. But those two are actually very much connected as shown in the quotes, so if we could change the way we see the failure, things might be different in a good way.
