“Look at failures as research.” – Robin Sharma
Have you failed lately? Have you failed at something earlier today, or yesterday, or this week? If the answer is “no,” I tell you, you are not acting enough, neither in quantity nor quality.
Failures are fundamental to success. Not the opposite, they are synonymous. However, they only mean the same if you make them in sufficient quantity. Robin Sharma calls them “research “. I think it’s a great way to look at it. Edison, after 10,000 attempts to make a light bulb, said: “I have not failed 10,000 times, I succeeded in finding 10.000 different ways to make my lamp not work.”
Do you have a goal, give your best, then the result wasn’t what you expected?
Perfect. You’ve discovered a way to make it not work. Continue to discover others and one day you will find one that works.
Does failure bother me? Yes, it bothers a part of me, called ego. But he actually has never been responsible for any of my successes, why should I listen to him when it comes to facing failures?
