Failure has its own advantage; it takes many failures and roadblocks for one to taste success. Failure comes as a catalyst to growth, prosperity and enhancement. “Failure is success in progress,” said by Albert Einstein. It can go about as a cause for two things: a street to sadness or a springboard to development. What becomes out of the initial disappointment is totally up to the individual who "failed".It's easy to lose inspiration when things don't go as arranged. But we must rather utilize the bottleneck as a mechanism or a progressive step to reset our outlook, switch to a psychological improvement or start with new strategy with regained focus.

Disappointment results in a positive enthusiasm and energy that escapes us out of restrictions into a profoundly energetic, creative state of mind where things become crystal clear and pick up a new understanding. It regularly sets us up for the calculated risks to be taken. I can easily relate this to a quote by Ralph Heath, managing partner of Synergy Leadership Group and author of Celebrating Failure: The Power of Taking Risks, Making Mistakes and Thinking Big:“Failure and defeat are life’s greatest teachers [but] sadly, most people, and particularly conservative corporate cultures, don’t want to go there. Instead they choose to play it safe, to fly below the radar, repeating the same safe choices over and over again. They operate under the belief that if they make no waves, they attract no attention; no one will yell at them for failing because they generally never attempt anything great at which they could possibly fail (or succeed).” But today, everything is taking a new perspective with new enhancements and progressions. People, companies, organizations are much more confident in handling the failures and re-bounce after hitting the ground. Even John C. Maxwell, author of book- Failing Forward: Turning Mistakes into Stepping Stones for Success said: “To achieve any worthy goal, you must take risks”.

We come across a lot of inventions and creations today because of the belief that one might fail incredibly, one might succeed incredibly—and that’s why incredible risk and courage are requisite. Either way, we learn more than ever about our strengths, potentials and resolve, and buckle up ourselves for the upcoming challenge. If some tasks appear and sound as dangerous territories then there are ways to ease the journey with fearless mind-set. The most successful companies seek resources with capabilities reflecting bothfailureandsuccess because someone who survivesfailure and disappointment has gained irreplaceable skillset and the unstoppable perseverance born from overcoming hardship.

Failure is definitely not a step backward but just another stepping stone laying the foundation to success. We can never learn to move out of our comfort zone if we don’t overcome our fear of failure.
