There are so many people who don’t want achieve anything because they are afraid of failure in life while it is very important that we should try hard to get success. Fear of failure is when we are allowed to stop doing the things but we should never be ashamed of our failure. We have to be willing to face and investigate our fears.When we fail, we learn. We grow and mature, achieving new understandings and perspectives on life, love, business, money, relationships, and people.
It shapes what you value
It’s funny. Through each successive failure in my life, my values were reshaped. Over time, they completely morphed. What I valued 10 years ago is no longer the same as what I value today. One of the biggest mistakes that people make when trying to succeed, is that they value the wrong things.
When you value the wrong things, success can be fleeting. It’s easier to give up. But, when your values are in order, you can happily succeed rather than succeeding to be happy. So, what does it exactly mean to value the right things?
Whenever we’re focused on taking something from the world or other people, failure is only a moment away. But, when our values change to ones based on contribution and giving more to the world that we receive, a monumental tectonic shift occurs.
It improves your perspective on finance
Every major failure helps you look at money in a different way. Whether you fail at marriage, business, relationships, or anything else. I know it did for me. You’re forced to improve your perspective on all things money-related.
All of the decisions we make in life have an impact on our bottom line. When we disrespect money and treat it with wanton disregard, it brings the potential for failure closer. When you add things like gambling, alcohol, and other addictions to the mix, it only amplifies your chances for failure.
But through each successive failure, I improved my perspective on money. I learned to respect it and treat with care, rather than spending it with disregard. As long as you can improve through each successive failure, then you’ve created a stronger platform for eventual success and wealth in the future.
learn who your true friends really are
I learned very quickly who my true friends were after each successive failure. Many people do the same. Failure acts as a “friend filter,” so to speak. When you’re succeeding, everyone wants to be around you. But, when you fail, most of those so-called friends up and disappear.
At the time, it feels painful. It feels as if everyone is betraying you. But, true friends love you for who you are, not how successful you are. A true friend doesn’t care about how much money you have in the bank or the kinds of things that you’ve accomplished.
The friends who really cared about me stuck around. They inspired and motivated me. They were there to uplift me rather than to pull me down. They said positive things, not focusing on the negative. True friends will be there for you no matter what.
You re-envision your goals
I don’t think that your goals should be changed, even if you fail. It doesn’t matter how lofty your goals might be. What I found through failure was that I had to re-envision my goals, not revise them. I needed to see them clearer in my mind.
If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you know how much I value goal setting. Setting goals the right way is a key factor in your potential for success. I needed to go back and re-envision the goals I had set in my mind.
When you re-envision and take a step back, you gain more perspective. You see things clearer. Then, you can push forward full steam ahead. As long as you don’t give up, you didn’t actually fail. It was just a temporary defeat. A setback, if you will.
You develop a deeper sense of community
It’s hard to go through failure alone. We generally default to creating a deeper connection with our community. We go to church, temple, or mosques. We attend religious gatherings to deepen our connection to others. We seek the help of mentors, looking to others to help us wade through the torment of failure.
Through my failures, I looked to strengthen my bond with people in my community. I reached out. I told them what I was going through. And, you know what? I was surprised at some of the insight that they had to offer.
Our lives might be unique, but the stories tend to repeat themselves over and over again. And those stories exist in other people’s lives as well. Through their experience, I was able to overcome some of my worst failures. And so can you.

You recognize your bad habits
When you fail, you destroy a part of your ego. Depending on how monumental that failure was, you lose either a major chunk or a small piece of your precious ego. Once that ego is shattered as a result of a failure, you begin to recognize your bad habits.
Bad habits get in the way of your failure. In fact, bad habits can all but ruin our chances for success in anything. And I literally mean anything. Part of my failures were the results of bad habits that were ingrained in me for years and years.
But you learn to recognize those bad habits. And when success means enough to you, you begin to change. You slowly modify your behavior over time to help rid yourself of any bad habit that was holding you back from success.
