Failing with Finesse

No one likes to fail. We can all admit this. The truth of the matter is that the most triumphant talents have failed and still acquired success. If you give up, after the first obstacle you encounter, it speaks to your dedication to the goal at hand. In essence, we learn our greatest lessons from our failures and through this, our character is strengthened, and we are able to better analyze our situations going forward. One must remember that in life, disappointment is inevitable. But from this same disappointment a greater “you” is being crafted. Know that how you respond to failure is key to attainment. Whenever I find myself getting caught up in the rapture of failure, I reference Thomas Watson’s formula for success. I challenge you to read on and allow it to resonate within you! Watson states:

Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t as all. You can be discouraged by failure – or you can learn from it. So, go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because, remember, that’s where you will find success.

Every setback you encounter shifts you one step closer to your destiny. No matter what, one should always recognize the power you possess over failure. I used to think that failure wasn’t an option. But I’ve recently found this to be far from the truth. In fact, I’ve failed plenty of times over the years and this is why I continue to succeed. Always finesse your failures in order for your best self to flourish.
