Successful people often share similar characteristics. But, I have come to believe that the single thing they have in common is that they find success on the far side of failure.
What do I mean by that? I find that almost all successful people have experienced significant failures in life or in their work but they have learned from their failures.
The first step in my eye is to recognize failure. Second step is to learn from the failure. My general observation in life is that people do not learn from the failures. They face failure but do not take it as a learning message.
Remember, in college, examinations are taken for the lessons learnt and then the result is declared. In life, result is declared first and learning lesson comes out from it.
Those who do not understand and learn from the failures are generally committing same mistakes in life again and again.
Think about the failures you have faced today.
How did you respond to them?
What outcome did you get?
How have they helped you today?
What have you not learnt from the failure?
Reviewing your results and recognizing failures and planning to move ahead is a well appreciated strategy in my opinion.
Behavioural models also have made mistakes but they have recognized most of them and not have repeated the same mistakes.
No failure is a final failure and no success is an ultimate success. Again as per my opinion, success is nothing but a feedback of your actions.
If you want to make significant progress in your life, don’t forget to learn a lesson from your failure.
