The only downside to failure is that my objective might take longer to achieve than I hoped. I consider all other aspects of failure to be positive. Failure makes me stronger in several different ways.
I learn something when I fail. Every failure provides information that can be applied to my next attempt.
Failure is a process of learning. I am eager to learn as much as I can, because it makes me a more capable person. Failure also brings me closer to success. If I am willing to fail enough times, I am assured of success.
I become mentally stronger. Failure can be challenging. Each failure I overcome makes me stronger. Failure builds my mental toughness in unique and powerful ways.
I am provided with an opportunity to learn how to persevere. Every failure provides an easy excuse for quitting, but I refuse to quit. Each time I continue after a failure, I become more resistant to giving up in the future. I know how to persevere.
Failure makes me stronger for the future. Each time I fail and continue, I become more capable. I am determined to become very skilled at making the most of my failures.
Others might avoid failure, but I welcome it.
Today, I am willing to fail in a big way. I know that the benefits of failure outweigh the costs.
- Why do I avoid situations that might result in failure? What am I actually afraid of?
- What would I accomplish if I weren’t afraid to fail?
- What can I learn from my last significant failure?
