As in life, similar it is in businesses- if you never fail, you will probably miss out on some important lessons in life. And to think of it, what is wrong in failing? For most, we do it every day. From pressing the snooze button on the alarm for those five minutes of extra sleep, to many other daily distractions, failure becomes a part of our daily lives. Although, we can all agree that failing to get out of the bed is not same as facing a financial loss in business.
That brings us to the important question, what exactly is failure? Considering the current corporate scenario, failing simply means not succeeding at the job you are being paid for. So if you are failing at something, you are probably doing the job wrong, and no one wants it that way. But if you fail, what do you learn from that? These two things go hand in hand, when you fail at something, you always learn something new so don t be afraid to fail
So is failure something bad? To put it in simple words, failure is something that does cross our paths some or the other time in our lives. Nobody would like to fail, but sometimes it’s just inevitable. Of course, it does not mean that you should fail intentionally and cost your company any kind of loss, but it truly is inevitable, and that phase might take you to the lows in life. But does that mean that you are inept or incompetent? Or does it mean that you should resign from the job or leave things unchanged? Of course not! As long as your desire to succeed is larger than your fear of failure, it won’t bother you.
After all, Confucius, a renowned Chinese philosopher has rightly said,
“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail.”
So doing the same thing over and over again will surely lead you through a safe journey, but it won’t lead to any breakthroughs. So don’t worry, don t be afraid to fail it is only natural to have an occasional hiccup, or hit a dead end, or take a wrong turn, It all works for the best in the end!
