Love Failure First

“For 10 failures, You may have 1 success”

Why should you love failing first?

  • Failing teaches you more than success, especially about yourself.
  • Failing renews your humility and sharpens your objectivity.
  • Failing creates the perfect opportunity to try out new ideas.
  • Failing helps you make corrections so that you stay on target.
  • Failing makes you more mature and more resilient.
  • Failure reminds you to be kinder to yourself and those around you.
  • Failing is a "badge of courage" because you dared to take the risk.
  • Failing develops the all-important emotion of patience.
  • Failing warns you to not take things so personally (or so seriously).
  • Failing grounds your self-esteem on who you are, not what you do.

Success is amazing, but there are substantial benefits to failing as well.
