I hate failure more than anything else in life. It hurts to fail.
At the same time, I’ve learned more through my failures than through my successes. Lessons learned through failure are some of the most invaluable lessons you could possibly garner in life. Failure teaches you in ways success can’t. It shapes you as a person. It makes you resilient. As long as you can improve through each successive failure, then you’ve created a stronger platform for eventual success.
For many successful people, failure is a motivating force. As John Cassevetes once said, “You have to dare to fail.” When I read about successful people I’m inspired by their tenacity, courage and will to pursue their dreams.
