Why Failure Shouldnt Define or Stop You

Some say Failures are just bumps in the road to success.

Failures are part of everyone’s life. Giving yourself permission to try new things, failing and learning from them is not a pessimistic thought at all. Accepting failures and trying to achieve something is all for the betterment of the human mind.

Whenever a person doesn’t succeed in something, his brain automatically perceives that failing as a negative thing. Psychologists believe that these negative thoughts can influence a person to decline if persistent. Therefore many psychologists actually preach to think about failure as exploring a new venture, trying something different and a recipe for future success.

In our society, only success is celebrated, not the struggles that brought that success. So failure can become a lonely, disappointing and painful road. There could be future consequences too as it impacts how we feel about ourselves and our future efforts at achieving something.

Looking back at history there are numerous examples of people who failed multiple times but succeeded in the end and achieved wonders. Even Thomas Edison in his own words said that” I didn’t fail, I just discovered 10,000 ways that didn’t work. Many people consider themselves failures because they give up too soon. “

Psychologists recommend looking at failures as isolated events, not as part of your life. Not succeeding at something does not define what you are as a person.  There are things that are unique to you an only you can do them. They will never be done if you give up too soon.

In order to succeed and learn from mistakes, a person needs to trust himself more and reframe failures as a path to success. Many psychologists claim that the difference between people who succeeds and who does not is that the former are willing to step out of their comfort zone again and again, willing to take the risks when others don’t and not listening to the voice telling them to give up or play safe.

3 Simple Ways Failure Benefits Our Minds:

  • Whenever we try new things, we end up finding new paths to achieve them. Failing actually gives us creative solutions for many problems and makes life exciting.
  • Failure provides us with the courage to try again and again and not give up. This makes us develop conviction and achieve a positive state of mind.
  • Failures let us question our current choices and path that led to it. It improves cognition and makes us figure out our mistakes ourselves instead of any outside help.

Basic human psychology states that how a person chooses to interpret their success and failures helps them either move forward in life or stuck in time forever. Every step back can become a stepping stone in success and help you dig deeper into your personality.
