9 Lessons to Learn From Failures

9 Lessons to Learn From Failures (Click here for article)

Most of us grew up with the idea that there is no room for failures.

Without failure, how can we learn? After all, life is not always a bed of roses.

I believe that it is through failures we learn about our true self. When we fail, we fall. The process of us trying to stand up & move on will make us a better person than what we were. Believe me.

Hope that you would be able to learn at least something from this article. Sometimes, reading how people overcome their obstacles do provide us some comfort to know that there is hope.

Martin Luther King Jr. once said:

If you can’t fly, then run,

If you can’t run, then walk,

If you can’t walk, then crawl,

but whatever you do,

you have to keep moving forward.

Life is not about what you couldn’t do so far, it’s about what you can still do

I was being shouted at and had been thrown out of the class a few times in my life. I had been called stupid at times back in  in my early years.  I had been mocked by people who did not believe in my dreams.  And that people of my kind are more known to be playing around and just dream.

However, these did not stop me from chasing after my dreams of wanting to be a scientist and work around the world.

“I see these as blocks that I should climb over. Once I could climb over, it is a step closer to my dream. ” – Eulyn K.

You have worked very hard but things did not work out.

You thought that you had everything all planned out but unexpected things happen.

You were soo confident that you can make it but you did not.

This is a powerful image that I would like share with you. It has a wide range of refreshing perspectives on failure. When I am bogged down and get stuck in the rut, I like to look at this. Somehow, it helps. I hope it will help you too.
