What I mean is… you need to get up after you fall down.
And not just physically, but emotionally. If you never learn how to get up after you have a huge life set back, then you’ll never be able to grow.
You know, failure is a huge part of growing. As they say, you need to learn how to “fail forward”. I used to get so confused by this phrase. One of my friends who owns his own iphone repair company said that to me one day, and I was utterly confused. This is how he explained it to me:
You need to learn how to fail forward.
He said it sternly, as if it was important. Turns out, it definitely was. The importance of learning from your mistakes and failures cannot be strained enough.
If you never learn how to extract every bit of wisdom out of a failure or a setback, then you will not get to your destination, or at least as soon as you wanted to.
So next time you have a setback, just remember, there is a lesson to be learned.
