Success is Born Out of our Failure to Fail

HENRY FORD: "Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time, more intelligently."


Failure, to my understanding and experience, is of two kinds: One Material Failure where our action/inaction/application/proposition/supposition and/or skills failed to deliver the desired result and the other is when we consider ourselves a failure by taking the first failure personally.


The above observation is born out of my personal interaction with a number of such individuals that take transitory failure, even repeat failure, as a black mark on their own character or career and force themselves into depression, stress, and other medical conditions.


These individuals lose the urge to fight adversity and lay down their arms in abject surrender. More often than not, such lack of drive and initiative to improve their lot leads to situations where continued downfall becomes a certainty rather than an exception.


The need of the hour is for us to resurrect ourselves like the Phoenix, the legendary bird that rises out of its own ashes. How else could you see progress in life? So long as we recognize that success and failure are the two wheels of a bicycle that continue to move in tandem, rather in a synchronized fashion, taking turns one by one, we can look forward to the change and prepare accordingly.


The title, invoking success as the product of failures, is a Universal fact. Looking into the life history of any number of luminaries that society has known over the last so many centuries, there’s perhaps only a handful of individuals that were gifted with all the imaginable pleasures right since birth. More or less each one of them saw adversity, even dire adversity at that if I may. Yet they did what was essential for them to do and created a fine example of stealth, wisdom, intellect, perseverance and so on and so forth, in no small measure.


Continued failure in life indicates your continued struggle against the same. Once you taste a little success, your energies get a boost and you start to follow the changed pattern with more zeal and vigour. This is where your resilience comes to the fore. Your ‘never-say-die’ spirit comes into play and you start to notice the difference.


Moving forward, each step you take helps you forge ahead in the direction of success, unparalleled success.


This is how you convert failure, even repeat failure into enduring success!
