Failures: Why we need them in our life and how to overcome them

“I get knocked down but I get up again, you’re never gonna keep me down.”

Chumbawumba

I believe that if you are able to look at failures in your life as a positive thing, you will be successful.

Why do we need them?

If they come, they will force change on us. It is up to us to make it a positive change

People often think that being comfortable is what we should strive for in life, it is also the way most of us have been trying to live because of our past generations viewpoint. I believe in the opposite, we need change and we need opportunites to learn about ourselves. Without change, life would be boring. Without failures, you never know what you could reach. Failures are designed for us to push ourselves there, recalibarte and become better because of it. Without it, we will never see how far we can go.

Why are some people afraid to take challenges or risk that could bring about failure? Well for one thing, it hurts and it hurts a lot. People associate the negative feeling twice as powerful as a positive feeling which is why we live in a society where people don’t acknowlege their own small successes as little as they may be.

Thomas Edison Quotes
Show me a thoroughly satisfied man, and I will show you a failure.

What happened to the New Jersey Shoreline and to New York City is a travesty, unimaginable and painful but I have a strong belief that in five years, it will be better than it has even been. People are coming together, everyone is donating and for some odd reason, I think people have learn to appericate the smaller things in life. (Living, electricty, hot showers, gas and spending time with love ones.)

How to overcome them

1.) Acknowledge that it is there, most failures never come to light until you realize them. Others can even tell you but until you realize it, you won’t be able to overcome it.

2.) Immediately set new goals (object is to push yourself)

3.) Don’t hang on it. Don’t associate the negative. See it as a blessing in disguise

4.) Decide how you are become better for it. Decide how you are going to learn from it.

5.) Move forward and never settle for anything less than what you want

6.) The most important thing in life is our legacy, so the question I will leave you to is how are you going to make your mark on the world today?

The things I have failed at have made me the person I am today. Strive to be something, to be somebody. You may never know what you can accomplish. Heart beats talent.

Until next time,

BA
