Failure. Just the word alone makes me feel like packing up my shit and getting the hell out here. We’ve grown up believing that failure is the root of all evil. That failing in class makes us dumb. That failing at the office makes us losers. That failing a relationships makes us hopeless morons.
All these years we’ve been told again and again that once we fail, that’s it. Game Over. There is no other chance, no other scenario. And everyone once in a while, our parents, teachers, friends, family, society and god knows who else, decides to teach a little something about “the ways of life.”
But guess what? Failure is not the end of it. Failure is just the beginning, in fact it’s the necessary first step on your way to success. You see, the “success stories” we hear so often about, didn’t get it right the first time. They tried again and again, sometimes over 5000 times, until they got it right.
Get that negative perception of failure out of your mind and get out there and try – again and again, until you’ve made it! No matter what it takes, no matter how difficult it is, you’re going to find a way to make it happen.
Yet again, Anna Vital blesses us with an eye-opening infographic on “How Many Times Should You Try”.
