Embrace failure as a part of the journey to success.

By expecting to fail a set number of times, we reduce the time we spend being surprised and frustrated by failures. This mindset helps us fail effectively. Instead of being frozen by fear of mistakes, we can embrace them. Mistakes highlight the room for improvement and pinpoint the area where we need to change our approach.


  1. Next time you start a daunting task or try to solve a complex problem, adopt a mindset of embracing failure. Think, “I will have to fail 10 times before succeeding.”
  2. When you fail, instead of thinking that you wasted your resources, try to identify the exact mistake you made and extract a valuable insight from it.
  3. Cheer yourself up when you fail.
    Think, ”Awesome! One down, nine more to go.”
