Failure

Failure .. I think its a scary word. It has always been so for me. If you scourge the net you will find a million quotes and stories saying why failure is important. Some samples:
  • Failure is the key to success.
  • Failing is better that doing nothing.
  • Good people are good because they've come to wisdom through failure. We get very little wisdom from success.
  • Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

When you read or listen to these, it seems very nice. These sound even better when you talk to people who experienced failure - you feel your words will do them good. But when it actually hits you, none of this matters. A failure is failure. What you do after it, how you react, and how much it impacts you - it all depends on the individual. The 'nice' quotes never come to your mind, and they dont matter when people tell you the same stuff over & over again. To some, it would even hurt - "Do you think I don't know these things? Please shut up!!"

So what next? Deal with it YOUR way. What is your way? You have to figure it out. Some would just let it hurt till it does, till it goes away. Some would move on without a bother. And some would go nuts. I guess it also depends much on the magnitude of the failure and its impact. It could also depend on the reason of failure. It could also depend on intangibles like ego.

In my book, it would depend on how it changes your life. What would have happened if you had not failed and what will happen because you did. i.e. how hard it hit you. Food for thought, right?

Hmmm...
/*Surprised to see a blog with this topic*/
Each and every word is true... Nice Quotes don't matter when people tell you the same stuff over & over again. But the fact is that Life is smooth till such time a wave of adversity does not swipe us off the ground. Things that we desire the most are not given to us and what we get is not what we desire (most of times). Ups and downs are part of life and there is nothing we can do about it because the Universe has its own way of working. I just believe that 'A Hard fall should mean high bounce if you are made of right material'... Cheers..!!

failures are good.they will make you learn a lot in quick span than if you had not failed. but i fear failure. i would not like to learn from failures. i would be lying if i said i do. it is "Fear of failure" that keeps me moving. that does the trick for me.
