Failing Upwards!

Failing, this could be in your career or the brand that you manage, is not an end in itself. Some people would take it as a point where they would fall down further, putting themselves in isolation from the core competition and give up. But the smart ones would take lessons from it and do not repeat the mistake.  They would take it as an opportunity to grow and outsmart others. Failing could be your stepping stone to a bigger success! Check this forum (click here)  where startup founders are talking about their mistakes, so that they can learn their lessons and grow fast. In fact, many entrepreneurs have stepped on the their success paths based on past failures. Similarly, if Elon Musk were not ambitious enough to breakthrough with re-usable rockets, Space-X project would not be here today without learning from past failures.

The bottom line is, while we don’t want failures in our lives, a few inevitable ones would actually surface up as blessing if we know how to capitalize on the learning that ensue from it. It appears that a positive and learning attitude towards failures would immensely contribute to future growth.
