Why Failure is Good for You

By Jimmy Roos

How do you view failure? Do you see it as something negative

that you don't want to be associated with or do you see it as

something positive? Most people in the world don't like failure.

Fear of failure is the main reason why more than 80% of people

in the world are not prepared to change their circumstances.

Why do people fear failure so much? The reason for this is

because people don't understand the dynamics involved in

success and failure.

Everything we do in life has either a right way of doing it and

a wrong way of doing it. When we do it the right way we meet with

success. Needless to say that when we do it the wrong way we are

unsuccessful. Understanding this is important because it puts

failure in its proper perspective and removes the fear around it.

When someone who doesn't understand this dynamic meets with

temporary failure he gives up thinking that he is not good

enough or that he will never make it. But is this really what it

is? Does the fact that you didn't make it the first time mean

that you are not good enough? Does it mean that you'll never

make it? Not at all! All it means is YOU HAVE NOT FOUND THE


So what do you do next?You go back and try and find out where

you went wrong.

Then you try again this time employing a different method.

When this doesn't work you go back and look at everything you

have done so far. Talk to successful people who have made it in

this area.

Think of what you might have left out and try again. Whatever

you do, don't give up.

Why do you need to do this? Because, "Every failure, every

adversity and every heartache, carries with it the seed of an

equivalent or a greater benefit," says author and mentor to

many great men, Napoleon Hill. Failure contains the seed of

victory and of success.

Failure teaches you what works and what doesn't. When you study

the reasons for your failure and learn from it, you'll find the

key to your success. The great inventor Thomas Edison knew this

truth better than anyone else. It took Edison 8000 trials to

perfect the Edison battery? Afterwards he uttered this famous

quote, "At least we know 8000 things that don't work."

You should also be like that. Every successful person has had

to overcome temporary defeat at one time or another. Know

this! You haven't really failed until you ACCEPT defeat. Do you

envy those who got success easily? Don't! Success earned in

spite of earlier failure is so much sweeter than if you would

get it otherwise.

Those who earn success in this way know the road to success.

They are not afraid of losing what they have because they have

learned how to become successful. Those that easily got success

don't know the road.

They got there so quickly that they didn't bother to look around.

Let me use the following analogy to illustrate. Take two guys

traveling to the same destination, with this difference. The one

is going by airplane and the other by car, but the one arriving

by car had a few breakdowns along the way.

If you take these two guys back to their original position and

ask them to find their way to their destination, who do you

think is going to remember the road better the next time?

Surely the guy who had a few breakdowns and spend some time on

the road, because he had the opportunity to look around.

Let temporary defeat no longer be an obstacle. You have many

hidden talents, so start working towards realizing your dreams.

Don't be put off by the fear of failure. Failure is an ally

because it contains the seed of success.
