5 Ways That Failure Transforms You Into Greatness

Published

Have you ever wondered if there was a way that failure could transform your life towards your success? I used to hate failure. Now I see failure differently and look forward to failing every day. What I learned is that the most successful people in the world failed extraordinarily before they had their biggest successes.

These people knew that failure wasn’t something that was going to hold them back, but instead it would be something that was a driving force propelling them to their goals. Becoming great will likely be a process in which you overcome failure.

Here are the 5 ways that failure transforms you into greatness:

1. Finding something worth pursuing allows you to be more

Failing at something means that your goal is worth fighting for. Accomplishments and goals mean nothing when they are easy and just given. Having a goal worthy of you will lead you on to discover more about what is great in you.

This moment of trial is when you have to dig in and commit to your goal. You have the chance to push through in the face of failure and fight on in the face of a worthy adversary. This task is bigger than you and a feat that will allow you to grow. What more could you ask for?

2. Reaffirms your belief in yourself

Most people don’t get enough opportunities to prove to themselves that they really believe in themselves. When you get the chance to look failure dead in the eye and tell it that you are not wavering, this is when you tell life that you are going to win.

By standing up in the face of devastation and despair you can align yourself better and fully affirm to yourself that you won’t give up. When you have this inner congruence against the opposing forces holding you back it is a powerful step towards coming into your greatness.

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” – Confucius

3. Being broken down builds you up stronger than before

When we are down and out on our luck this gives us the opportunity to first take all that life is throwing at us and then turn it around to empower us.

We have to recognize that either our approach isn’t working or that we are not quite there yet in the knowledge or the abilities we need for success. Just learning this will lead you to more growth.

Take a step back and make sure you are aligned with your goal. Then become even more. Allow that failure to strengthen you and dig even deeper to find the path that you know you must take to fulfill your success.

4. Others seeing you fail will rally your fans

Your haters will cheer for your demise, but your fans will rally. What is more is that you won’t know how many fans you really have until you put yourself out there.  If you fear failure and don’t put yourself out there then you fail to give them the opportunity to cheer for you. They want want someone to believe in.

When your fans see that you failed and won’t back down then they will rally around you. Having this positive force and will power driving you to win, they will help thrust you to greater success. These people will aid you in becoming even more.

5. The world embraces you for what you give

The universe is all about growth. When you can grow into your own success and find that inner greatness it allows others to find it as well. By finding out how much more you are capable of after failing, you will be a powerful help to others.

When you build others up and teach them that failure is just part of the process then you contribute to the world in a way of tremendous growth. This further allows you to transform yourself into a person of more greatness.

“I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” –Michael Jordan

This ability to persevere in times of difficulty or disappointment is not something that is for everyone. In fact, many people have the hardest time taking another step forward in their moments of challenge, but when you strive forward you can unlock a power you might not have known that you had.

Failure has the ability to transform your life if you will let it. Some of the most important advice that I have gotten was to fail more and to fail quicker in life. Through failing in life I have learned some of the greatest lessons. It has also grown.
