Even The Best Fall Down Sometime


People naturally look at failure as a bad part of life that should be avoided at all costs. However, this way of thinking often leads to a life without risk—and subsequently, no reward. But many men and women have faced adversity and used it to become stronger, more successful people. In fact, everyone will experience some form of failure at some point in their lives. It is how we manage that failure that differentiates us from others.

Seeing failure as a good thing

Once we change our mindset about failure, we will actually start to receive more out of life. This happens because the more we risk, the more reward we are likely to get—even if that reward is eventual rather than instant. Failing at something teaches you about your own character, as well as about the action you failed at. If you start a business that fails, you can either give up, or you can ask yourself what went wrong. Starting over and trying again is then more successful because you already know what not to do.

Example of a great man who faced adversity

Walt Disney is a good example of someone who took massive risks and ended up building one of the largest companies in the world. He faced bankruptcy more than once in his life before investing every cent he owned to make Snow White. Despite being ridiculed and told that no one would ever be interested in a movie-length animated feature, he made it anyway and it became a massive success. So despite experiencing many failures in his life, the Disney Corporation is now one of the most popular film companies in the world.

No one is a stranger to failure

No person will go through life without failing at something. But when we fall down, will we stay down, or will we get up and try again? This is what makes all the difference in successful people and those who are too fearful to risk anything.

Failure can and should be seen as a means to reach eventual success. We learn from our mistakes which should spur us on to take greater risks throughout life. We can all read about the great deeds done by great men and women, but do we really know what it took for them to get to where they eventually got?
