Learn To Fail Or Fail to Learn...


By Daniel Schmitz, Legends Report Contributor

Have you ever encountered an obstacle and had thoughts of giving up? Ever started to believe that you are just not capable of achieving what you want to achieve?

We’ve seen from countless legends like Bill Gates, Soichiro Honda and Abraham Lincoln that failure itself contains the seeds of success.

Have a look at this powerful quote and see if it changes your perception of what you can do and how you can achieve it:

“When we hear about extremely successful people, we mostly hear about their great accomplishments—not about the many mistakes they made and the failures they experienced along the way. In fact, most successful people throughout history are also those who have had the most failures. That is no coincidence. People who achieve great feats, no matter what field, understand that failure is not a stumbling block but a stepping-stone on the road to success. There is no success without risk and failure. We often fail to see this truth because the outcome is more visible than the process—we see the final success and not the many failures that led to it.

When I acknowledge that fulfilling my potential must involve some failure, I no longer run away from risks and challenges. The choice is a simple one: Learn to fail, or fail to learn.”

Tal Ben-Shahar - Harvard University Lecturer and Author
