Failure: Why You Need To Fail In Order To Be Successful – How To Deal With Failure

Failure is an essential part of success. If you look at some of the most successful people of all time, they all attribute their success to the fact that they failed over again.

One quote that sticks out to me is by Michael Jordan:

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

In this article, I will give you 3 reasons why you need to fail in order to be successful.

1. Failure Makes You Stronger

Failure is always a blessing in disguise. When you put yourself out there, take a risk, and fail at something it will put you at a huge advantage over the millions of people who would never attempt what you just tried because they are all too afraid of failure.

Many people in society are hesitant to pursue their dreams or do something outside of their comfort zone because they know that if they don’t try they will never have to face failure. Well, this is not true because in fact, not giving yourself a chance and not trying is failure by default.


On the other hand, when you do try something and fail at it you will gain strength because now you will know what failure feels like. Not only that, but you will also realize that failure is not the end of the world!!

Now that you understand failure isn’t that big of a deal you will develop a sense of confidence by knowing that you have strength and can overcome obstacles. This confidence will spread into all different aspects of your life and you will become a great problem solver.

So, do yourself a favor—FAIL MORE!!!!

2. Failure Shows You How Bad You Want Something

Sometimes failure can really help to pave the direction of our lives. Oftentimes, failure is what will point you in the direction of your true passions.

When people try things and fail, they usually react in one of two ways. Either they get back up and try again, or they give up.

When you truly want something, you will know it because you will be willing to do whatever it takes to achieve that goal. However, if you fail and you are willing to walk away with no qualms about your decision what so ever, this actually shows you that you never really wanted that thing bad enough anyway.

So if you fail at something, and realize that you are not bothered by the prospect of not trying again and giving up. Don’t see it as a bad thing, take it as an opportunity to find something you are really passionate about and are willing to do anything to accomplish.

3. Failure Helps You To Make Improvements

One of the best opportunities that comes out of failure is the chance to go back to the drawing board. Failure simply exposes the things that you are not good at and that need to be improved. Without failing you won’t know what you need to do better next time so that you can achieve success.


In sports whenever a team loses, the coach makes the team watch videos the next day at practice so can observe where they made mistakes. This way when it is time to play the next game they won’t make the same mistakes again, they’ll be better, and they’ll win the game.

The same concept applies to anything else in life. When you fail, embrace it and realize that it is an opportunity to become better. Learn to love failure because now that it is out the way, it means you are that much closer to being victorious.


Failure can be a tough thing to deal with at times, but the key is to change your perspective of it. Once you change how you view failure and learn that it is simply an opportunity to get better, you will soon learn to embrace it and appreciate the fact that you are attempting to do things that most other people are afraid to do and that is something to be proud of.
