Failing For Your Dream

Jason VanaJason Vana

failing for your dream

Failing is good for your dream.

It teaches us what not to do.
Gives us insight into our shortcomings.
Shows us where we need help.
Pushes us to try harder.
Refines our plans.
Smooths down our rough edges.
Teaches us to be humble.
Forces us to try again.
Gets all the bad ideas out of the way.
Makes us find others to join us in our dream.

Failing is often the only path to achieving your dream.

Thomas Edison, when asked about his countless tries at inventing the lightbulb, said:

I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.

When you fail, you have a choice: let it become your identity or let it propel your dream. Tweet this

Failing will get you ever closer to your dream. It will refine your vision. It will push you to achieve what you thought impossible.

If you let it.

But the minute you take on failing as an identity, the second you call yourself a failure, your dream is dead.

Because failures give up the pursuit of anything greater.

Don’t let the act of failing stop you from achieving your dream.
Instead, let it propel you into something greater.

How have past failures propelled you further in your dream? Leave a comment below.
