It happens to all of us -- you meet with a setback or fail at something, and you're tempted to give up. Many give up even before doing at something. Here's a surefire way to help you through it: it's all in how you look at it. To give an example, what would you think about the following person?
He failed in business at age 31, was defeated for the legislature at 32, failed again in business at 34.
His sweetheart died when he was 35, and he had a nervous breakdown at age 36.
He was defeated in election at age 38, and then was defeated for Congress at 43 and again at 46 and 48.
He was defeated for the Senate at age 55 and for Vice President at 56 and for the Senate again at 58.
He was elected President of the United States at age 60.
Who was this man? It was Abraham Lincoln – who was certainly a success, not a failure. It’s not only Abraham Lincoln, many more are there. Put into perspective, failing in something is just another opportunity for learning and growth, for finding out what works and what doesn't. Looked at positively, you'd never learn if you didn't fail. That doesn’t mean you should fail, if failure happens take it positively. As Thomas Edison said of his many attempts to invent the electric light, "I have not failed. I've found 10,000 ways that won't work."
You take any field/domain of work; the expert is one who knows most of the problems that could come up in that field. How it is possible? They have faced all the problems that could come up in their way to achieve expertise.
So, that is why it's so important to never be afraid to fail. It's a necessary step to success – and a blessing in disguise.
