“In order to succeed you must fail, so that you know what not to do next time.” -Anthony J. D’Angelo.
This quote says it all, there is no teacher like experience. Every failure brings a lesson with it. It’s up to you to pay attention and learn from it. It helps you decide what is not working so you don’t repeat your failures.
I’ve experienced a lot of failures in my own life, I would have a hard time pointing out any of my own successes. But I’ve also learned a lot from them. At this point there’s very little I couldn’t handle, I’ve learned how to deal and adapt. I know what works and what doesn’t, so I won’t make the same mistakes.
Think about what your failures are teaching you.
What have you failed at? What lessons have you learned from those failures?
Have your learned what not to do? Have you repeated those failures?
How can those lessons help you succeed?
When have you succeeded by knowing what not to do?
