Fail To Succeed

I was sitting yesterday in the balcony by my plants imagining the life 2 months back and I noticed a tiny little spider. It was brownish in color and very light to look at. I freaked out initially but then since it wasn’t coming my way, I kept my calm and noticed where it was going.

I see it tried to climb the wall of the balcony, but fell down several times. However, it didn’t stop it. Eventually after multiple tries, it managed to climb up. This reminded me of a bed time story I heard, which was called “The King and the Spider“.

This made me think, this story has been taught to us when we were so young and it still makes sense. Taking failures positively and not giving up to reach the success eventually.

Importance of Failure

Have you ever wondered why everyone who is successful today keeps saying, I failed multiple times.

It is because failure is as important as success or even more. Failure teaches you a big deal. It teaches you how you can move forward. It lets you realize why hard work is important and over confidence is not.

I believe life tests you, it tries to check how worthy you are. How much can you bear. How badly you want something. Once it has tested you, it gives you the taste of success and trust me, true taste of success can only be felt after failures.

Who fails

Who do you think has the risk of failures?

Is it the people who are genius but lazy? Or the one who never wants to get out of the comfort zone? Or the people who never want to take a risk?

It is none of them. They can never fail!

Failures are the people who wants to take risks, who want to get out of their comfort zone and chase their dreams. those are the people who fail and rise back again!

What exactly failure means

Imagine a life without failure.

Imagine if you never failed , will you ever be able to enjoy your successes? Wouldn’t it be just another day? Wouldn’t you take it for granted?

Failure means that you are striving to Surpass yourself. It means, you are not settling , you are ready to fight anything that comes your way while you chase your dream.

Conclusion: It is the attitude that matters

Failing is alright. Everyone who is successful today has failed in their life for multiple times.

Of course you will feel bad if you fail, that is fine. But don’t just give up because you failed at something once. “If one door closes, multiple opens” and in order to see the open gates, we need to think and see clearly.

It is the attitude towards failure that matters the most. When life gives you challenges and you fail, important part is to learn from those failures and rise up again! Fail once, fail multiple time in order to succeed. Do not give up!

    Very true ! The generation nowadays . from the upper middle class , who are just out of college let’s say , they so look forward to instant gratification . They are not ready to tread the path of climbing the ladder slowly . It surprises me when a guy said β€œI am not getting a promotion while my colleague just 3 months more experience did β€œ and he quit that job . He was just less than a year into his career. Failure and facing it , and getting up from it , is a very important life lesson any one should know . Nowadays with just one or two kids in a family , they enjoy lots of attention and pampering and a support from everyone to not fall down . While parents feel they are protecting their kid , there is an important life skill missing out !

      oh! that is surprising that he quit his job in less than a year! I believe it is all about the attitude, that is what makes the difference. If you take your failures positively, you will get courage and motivation to move ahead, if you want to sulk about it and not do anything, again it’s the person’s choice to do so.

      About the parenting, I think 2 children or 10, we can try to just imbibe this at a very young age that It’s okay to fall! Important is to get up back again. πŸ™‚ Being over protective can also be harmful sometimes.

      Thankyou so much for your comment! πŸ™πŸ»

    Nicely written my friend. Failure is actually a good teacher if taken in the right spirit. It teaches you to stretch yourself to do better, instills the resilient spirit, shapes you to take on challenges better, makes you develop patience and helps you to enjoy success better.

    I just want to stand on my chair and clap for you. I felt as if it was a slap on my face for many times I refused to put hard work. I remembered everything I took lightly and didn’t think it’s for my ability to increase.

    I was being tested for how badly I want it. But in return, I showed no interest and it didn’t come to me. I also remember the people who never stopped and got the result at the end of the day.

    Thank you, my friend, for making me realise something which I’ve been ignoring since a few days.

    I hope this helps. And you did a great job by sharing it with us. I salute your observation skills.

    This is such invaluable advice. And all you said is so true. I see failure as a motivation for pushing harder in life. I don’t see failure as bad, I see it as experience, lessons, and an opportunity to do better than I did yesterday. Thanks for sharing this awesome piece❀️
