If you tried to do something for the first time and you failed, It’s not the end of the world. Yes, you will be embarrassed and you will feel shame. Others may misjudge you and you may not get the support that you need to get back up after getting knocked down. Things would probably never be the same again.
Fears and doubts can eat away confidence and self-esteem. It’s not possible to undo what has been done but with the right mindset, you could build enough strength and determination to turn things around and make the situation better.
“Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.” – Richard Branson
“Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” – Denis Waitley
To be able to ultimately reach the success you dream of, do not avoid failure. It’s an essential part of the learning process. Think of it as a challenge, an opportunity to grow and mature. The more failures you face, the more lessons you learn, and the tougher you get! Treat them as valuable life experiences.
“Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.” – Robert T. Kiyosaki
