The Top Ten
1 Failure is not a step backward

This is a good reminder for those who think differently. Unfortunately, most people believe failure is a step backward. If you fail at a particular attempt, you should be able to learn a lesson from it. Failure is not a step backward but instead a step forward toward success, as long as you're constantly determined.

Just like in Meet the Robinsons, you learn more from failure than from success. You just have to keep moving forward.

The best thing is to look failure in the eye and laugh.

2 You'll eventually succeed

You may feel like you fail repeatedly with each attempt, but eventually, given the opportunities that failure brings, you'll have better chances of succeeding the next time or so.

Very inspiring list. Without failure, you can't excel at some things. We all make mistakes sometimes.

You can't succeed if you're afraid to fail.

3 Failure isn't the end of the world

Just because you fail at something doesn't mean it's the end of the world. At least you've tried, which is better than not trying at all. Don't give up or abandon your goals due to repeated or severe failures. Stay determined and keep striving toward your goal. You'll realize that failure isn't permanent or the end.

Well, this depends on the context. If you fail to stop someone who's trying to destroy the world, then it's a different story. However, I see your point.

4 You'll learn

Failure is a source of useful lessons and an educative tool. It reminds you not to repeat the same mistakes. You'll learn how to fix errors, what is important to focus on, how to tackle problems wisely, and eventually see things from a different perspective.

5 Failure can drive you

When passionate about a goal, any kind of failure encourages and reminds you to keep trying repeatedly. Persistent motivation is key to remaining determined after experiencing failure until you succeed.

6 Encourages creativity

Failure can encourage creativity by sparking new ideas and experimenting with either different methods or a similar approach with slight changes to avoid making the same mistakes.

7 Success is better with failure

It is commonly known that you often experience failure before succeeding in pursuing a particular goal. With its opportunities, values, lessons, and motivation, failure teaches you much. After the hard work you've done and what you've learned from failure, reaching success is sweeter and more satisfying.

The more failures you've experienced, the more rewarding success will be.

8 Failure can develop courage

If you have a strong enough personality, getting used to failure can eventually help you develop and maintain the courage to take risks, overcome fear, and face failure - a challenge most people prefer to avoid.

9 It shows your capability

Failure reveals your capabilities and who you are, clearly pointing out your strengths and flaws, encouraging you to improve these weaknesses in order to achieve success.
