Do you know failure is an essential ingredient for our own personal development?
All the great people in the world who have achieved great things in life have failed more times than we can imagine. Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before inventing the bulb. However he did not give up, rather continued his learning process until he invented the bulb that became one of the greatest inventions in the world.
Unfortunately, our society only talks and praises the victories of the great accomplishments and less about the lessons of failures that made Albert Einstein,Walt Disney, Mark zukerberg, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and many more in this world.
If we look at nature, we will notice that even plants and trees adapt during unfavorable weather conditions of rain and winter.
Everybody in life goes through ups and downs. Most of us become happy when we achieve success and sad when we encounter downs in our life. Some of us even give up in our journey of life thinking that failure means we are not good enough.
We consider failure of our actions as failure of ourselves. However we are not our actions. So labelling us as failures based on our actions is not the right interpretation.
