1. You are stronger than you really thought you are.
Saying goes that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Yes, of all that this there, this one is still one of my true blue favourites. Failure doesn’t make you look weak; it just makes victory taste sweeter when you lay your hands on it. Rising up from the ashes makes you what you really strive to be.
2. You learn to place trust in the right place.
Yes, you might have trusted the wrong people, put all your faith on the erroneous decisions, you realize that when heart and mind come together, the whole universe would conspire to make it happen. You then know the value of each of your decision and how much weight it bears and why it affects people who care for you.
3. You know your priorities right.
This is the step where you realize that you shouldn’t ever place all your eggs in the same basket. Makes sure that you keep the gains and the momentum steady even in troubled times when things do not go as planned.
4. Good decisions come from good judgement decisions and good judgement comes from bad decisions.
Yes you heard that right, you succeed, it’s important that you know your weaknesses. They serve as the stepping stone, to glory. I recall a famous sportsman quoting once, ‘When people throw stones at me, I take them and convert them into milestones. The heart lies in the listening and learning from your mistakes.
5. Your learnings come the hard way. Your skills become apparent when faced with the unknown.
Some people perform best when they have their backs to the walls and are faced with unknowns. It’s that uncertainty and desperation, that wear their best thinking caps and come out with winning strategies and out of the box solutions.
6. A man’s worst enemy is self-doubt, which now lay conquered, because you have already walked the path of defeat.
It is not fear that is a man’s worst enemy. It is the silent predator – when you start doubting yourself, that you actually start losing the battle. Conquer it and you win hearts.
7. Your resolve grows stronger because the taste of success doubles after a failure.
Nothing tastes better than success and even sweeter when it comes after adversities.
8. You stop talking and start listening
When you stop listening you stop learning, and when you stop learning, you stop rising. A river doesn’t start mighty from the mountains. At the very beginning, it embraces careless youth, but as it crosses the
highlands, it takes unto itself, the flows of the other streams, gathers momentum and flows into the ocean – mighty and indestructible. Do you think it would have ever managed to cover miles on its own? Listen, learn, share and see your elevate above all others.
9. You learn to accept failure
You know now to accept failure. Wise men often say that if you do not know darkness, how will you learn to
live in the light? If you do not know failure, how will you make success truly your own?
You know it is not the end of the world for you. Yes, that’s the moral of the story. Let it rise, like a phoenix.
