We’ve all seen it, the narratives of those who persevered despite numerous rejections and failures to ultimately become renowned in their area and achieve some amazing results but do we take this lesson to heart? Do we see failure as a reason to cease or as a stepping stone towards success? If it doesn’t work out once do, we believe it never will? I’m here to tell you that when you own a dream then don’t you dare give up! Yes, you may fail, you may fail numerous times so provided that you may still become a success and keep getting back up afterward failure is not the end.
Decide What You Need
It is no good saying ‘do not give up’ if it’s something you do not need. We all can’t do everything but determine what it is that you need in life and then never give up on that thing that you’re enthusiastic about if you don’t need it then, by all means, cease.
‘OK, so doing it that way did not work, what other method can I try?’ Consider life an experiment. There could be many ways that don’t work but if you keep trying you will eventually find the one way that does work. Only keep a note of what hasn’t worked and do not keep trying to do things the same manner. If you keep on attempting to do things in the same way that you failed before, then you’ll not triumph. Strive to do it a different way, and you’ll learn from your errors.
Occasionally it is not too much the procedure we are following to achieve the outcomes as it’s the time. Some things aren’t going to happen immediately. Unfortunately, we live in an age where we’ve gotten used to results that are virtually instantaneous and when things don’t work out like that we tend to get impatient and give up. The very best things in life nevertheless will take time. So learn to be patient and recognize that everything does not have to occur immediately.
Be teachable and willing to learn. If there are people who have gone through this procedure before, ask them how they did it and the reason why they believe they finally got it right. Take notes of the lessons they learned along the way and try to stay away from the same errors they have made. Learn to stand on the shoulders of those people who have gone before and learn the lessons they have learned. You can achieve further, as you will not need to go through the same mistakes. You don’t have to do it, and mentorship is one of the best success principles.
Plenty of folks have failed again and again but have gone on to achieve great things with their lives because they didn’t give up; they showed persistence, patience and learned from others. Learn to do the same if you’ve got something you want to attain and see failure as your stepping stone to greater things.
