Failure is all about your mindset, there is a difference between failing and being a failure, and it all comes down to you and how you perceive things. Events and obstacles will occur along your path to your goals, there is no getting around this. Every person will make mistakes and fail at one point or another in their life, the difference between those who reach their goals and become great and those that don’t has everything to do with the mindset of the person. I would argue that those who achieve the most in life are those who had to overcome the biggest obstacles. Having more hardships or obstacles to overcome teaches you very quickly how to overcome adversity and keep moving forward.

Being resilient is like any other skill, the more you have to practice it the better you become at it. Making mistakes is a prerequisite to mastering something. You must make mistakes to learn how to do something correctly, it also shows you are pushing your limits. No one ever became great by staying in their comfort zone. Some of the most famous people failed or were told they would never amount to anything. You can either let your failure or mistakes defeat you or use it as fuel to become better, to grow and become the person who can overcome anything that is thrown their way.

Every event in your life is temporary, the good, the bad, it is important to remember that no situation will be like that forever. Sometimes there are things you can do, and sometimes you just have to wait it out, but regardless, it is temporary. See what you can learn from the experience to make you better, smarter, faster, quicker, stronger, etc. Life is a journey, the more mistakes you make the faster you will master your skill set and the faster you will progress towards your goal. Embrace failure, embrace knowing that you will make mistakes all your life, and it is how you respond to those mistakes that will set you apart from those that give up. Choose to fight, to grow and challenge yourself at every level. Our self-development relies on mistakes, and every chapter or your life requires a new version of you, let the mistakes mold you to becoming that person so you can thrive along your path.
