The Importance Of Failure In Human's Life
Failure is a feather of any fighter. Without any experience of falling, a flying man cannot call himself flying. Everyone of us already failed at something, be it as simple as failing to hit a high note during a school musical play, or as frustrating as failing to close a business deal and failure to achieve promotion, everyone of us have experienced our own taste of failure. And yes, since everyone fails on something, I can accept a medicine as bitter as failure. If I stumble and fall on my knees, I would accept my wounds and learn from it. Now, if you would ask me for a stronger antiseptic than a 70% alcohol, I would tell you it’s acceptance. Not trying again is not an option. Surrendering is never a choice.
Fear of failure leads to a distortion of your perceptions. How does it do it? First, failure makes the same goal appear more unattainable. However, if we are to use a fine-tooth comb, the goal was unmoved, hence, how did it become unattainable? The answer is because your perceptions have been greatly changed. Failure also makes you doubt your abilities and make you believe that you’re helpless. This increases your performance anxiety and instill inferiority complex to you. Fear of failing creates a psychological feeling of pressure to succeed, which increases performance anxiety. Hence, overthinking should not overpower your understanding of your abilities.
Simply put, fear of failure makes you do two things: overthink of your weakness, and underestimate your strength. And since I have presented you the negative impacts of fear of failure, i’m sure you all are asking: how can we cope with this psychological fear? Psychologically, focusing on variables in control is the healthiest response to failure. What aspects are in your control? What aspects are out of your control? Now, start by knowing how can these aspects be improved. Improving skill sets, planning, and relationships are few of the many things that help us turn our weakness into strength. Now, focus solely on what variables are in your control. This will help you overcome your inferiority and eradicate the feeling of helplessness and demoralisation. This way, you will be motivated to try again, minimizing your chances of failure, thus increasing the likelihood of your success.
All things must be done properly. Hence, we strive to avoid and not to repeat the same mistakes we previously committed. Looking forward in any situation, trying out different strategies will serve as a principal key to all doors of success.
The fall of the labour government ended the era of post-war consensus that reigned Britain for over 30 years. Prior to the election of Margaret Thatcher in 1979, Britain gained high levels of unemployment, industrial unrest and inflation which led to the desperate need of radical change. Indeed, the election in 1979 covered fundamental reforms in all areas of society which was referred to by historians as the ‘Thatcher revolution’. It can clearly be said that Thatcher did represent a...
Success normally envisaged the core element every human being reckoning to achieve in life. It is not a cake walk to shoot in one day. It requires doing toughest and unlikeable things to do in life. Ceasing discomfort opens path to success example PM of India sleeps just five hours. This is a perfect example of coming out of comfort zone.

Experience had taught George Washington a great many things. His father had passed away at a young age, denying him the chance for the college education in England that he had been promised. Instead of lecture halls and libraries, his factories of learning were to be the wildernesses of the Virginia frontier, the battlefields of the War for Independence, and the unforgiving campgrounds of Valley Forge. As Joseph J. Ellis succinctly puts it, “Instead of going to college, Washington went...
Finding the courage to overcome obstacles in our lives often molds us into the people we become. One of my largest and most recent setbacks has changed my perspective on life, it taught me how to deal with disappointment, and face my problems. Eight months ago I failed my driver’s test after it had been postponed a handful of times. While this might seem like a minor inconvenience to many, obtaining my driver’s license felt like a lifeline to me....
We always celebrate winning with the people we love but forced to face failure alone. We reached the point where we can’t accept failure because we are afraid of shame. We forget that accepting failure is an important part of learning. Failure can vary from one person to another and from one personality to another. It depends on the responsibilities a person has, as well as the age of the person. The definition of failure changed multiple times throughout my...
Introduction Most administrations experience projects that fail at some point or another. Whether the project not meeting the programmed deadline, project going over budget, or a project not producing favorable or expected results, plans not going accordingly, and thus failed in one way or another. Numerous drawbacks that can cause a project to derail, there is never a hundred percent chance that a project will workout for an administration. Most administrations have their fair share of success and failure. A...
Many great scientists and technology aficionados have claimed the theory that in a non-distant future the range and power of technology will exceed humanity. Many of the emerging technologies in twenty first are substantiating this claim by bridging the gap between definition of machines and humans, i.e., physical world and virtual world. The contemporary world is advancing at a very fast pace in the avenues related to artificial intelligence, augmented reality and virtual reality. The concept of ‘smart’ technologies primarily...
After slavery ended the Reconstruction period begin, a period that many historians say was one of the most important times in U.S. history. This period of time is when freed African Americans began to be treated as humans, not like animals. But when Abe Lincoln was assassinated his vice president didn’t have the same viewpoints and the Reconstruction period began to come to what most people think of this time period, a time period when the U.S. had to finally...
African-American History: How did African-Americans envision their freedom after the 13th Amendment and to What Extent were They able to Achieve their Goals during Reconstruction? Using Eric Foner’s definition of Reconstruction, the period lasted from 1863-1877, beginning with the Emancipation Proclamation, the freeing of slaves in rebel states, and ending with the compromise of 1877 (Foner, 2014). African-American definitions and expectations for freedom differed between individuals during this period, but the themes of autonomy, economic independence, and education were constants...
