Failing is Succeeding.

27 replies
When I first started my Internet Marketing business I can't even tel you how many times I failed. I guess the point of this thread is to express that failing just like in life eventually makes you learn and brings you closer to your goals. For all the people just starting out in IM it is OK to fail because you are going to have many failures...Stay persistent, stay focused, and stay determined and eventually you will reach your goals!

        Here's what's interesting about 'failure'. For a start, if you learn from the error, then it's not a failure as you're still moving forward.

        Also, the more mistakes you make and learn from, the more you develop. You don't learn a great deal from your successes. All you learn is that it works, whereas if you make a mistake, then you learn and can, in the words of Henry Ford 'begin again more intelligently'.

        Thought you might enjoy this on this topic:

            This is where most people really do fail properly (i.e: give up completely) because they see their mistake not as a lesson but as a failure or even a reflection on themselves.

    Everyone must fail before they succeed. Look at all the top people in any industry. The all failed before they were successful. It's just the path to success for everyone. Don't every give up and push ahead towards your dreams.

    Agree with what most Warriors have said. Failure will bring you a step closer to success because the more you fail, the more experience you gain. The ones that are successful in life are people who know how to learn from their mistakes, overcome them with determination and never repeat the same mistake twice. No successful people has never experienced failure before. The ones that fail in life are people who are always scare of failure and never take action.

    The story is same for almost all. In the starting it seems, a lot of dollars are moving around and I can not touch even a single one!! Yes, a failure is not a failure, if you can take a good lesson from it. Because nothing is more valuable than experience.

    I've never known or even heard of a successful person who hasn't failed many times. It takes failing in order to get to success. I've surely had my share and I'm certain that I'll have many more. If you're not failing, you're probably not doing anything.

    Don't know until you try. Must be willing to take a few risks in life to be successful.

    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

    You cannot name an internet marketer who did not fail before. Failures Make you stronger.

    They say that fools learn from their own mistakes and smart people learn from mistakes of others. I disagree. The only mistakes that really teach you are your own. So fail - it's normal, but stand up and move on!

    Failure is a important part of the process of becoming successful, especially when we learn lessons from each of our failures.

      failing is succeeding if you don't let your failures overcome your ability to bounce back and learn from the failures.

        I just wish more people starting out would understand that it is completely OK to fail on their adventure to success. As I grow older my life lessons and failures help shape me as a person no matter how bad it is...And the same goes with IM you learn every single time you think things could not go any worse....Stay strong, stay persistent, and you will find your way!

    You know, when I was a kid I played hockey goalie for most of my life. My father had always taught me that it is not important how you fall, but how you rise. On one occasion I had been called up a division to fill in for another goalie. At one point a guy nailed me right where it counts with a full on slapshot. I went down like a sack of onions and it hurt so bad that I couldn't even feel my legs. I remember looking up and seeing my dad staring at me, not panicking, not rushing to my aid but seemingly saying: "Get up son! Get up!" I don't know if he actually was shouting it, but in my mind I could hear him loud and clear.

    The refs brought out a stretcher, but I refused to get on it (we had no backup).

    I got back up and finished the game, even though it was damn hard to play with my legs crossed (try doing that in goalie pads). On a couple of occasions I almost fell over and the ref kept asking me to get off the ice, but I hung in there.

    Don't worry about how you fell think about how you will get up.

    And now...let the hockey puck in groin jokes commence.

    Regards,
    jim

    Yeah, Failures are the stepping stones to success and nobody can skip! If you are failing it only means you are on your way to succeed. The point is to be aware of this point and be persistent.

    You can't succeed without failing,
    One thing is to fail and another thing is to fail well
    when you fail well, you learn from your mistakes,
    pick yourself up and move on without giving up.

    Take time to study the cause of your failure
    (don't spend too much of your time) learn from it
    and improve on it. That's what have been keeping me on.
