Failure and the benefit of the experience…

Yes, you read that right. Failure has a benefit, when one looks at the experience objectively. Sadly, few people know how to do that these days, but a higher consciousness can still evolve.

I’m a conservative person. Did you know that the word “conservative” literally means “to hold the essence of”. Don’t believe me? I can handle that while you go look it up.

While you’re busy looking up the definition of “conservative” however, others will be here reading what Gary Ryan Blair has written about failure and the benefits failure brings.

The following has been “cut and pasted”. (Why reinvent the wheel?

Failure Demands Respect

Failure serves an indispensable function in the production of your success.


It provides information and motivation for you to learn from and apply. 
It’s a sign that points toward progress; however, depending on your 
perception, it moves you closer to or further from your goals.

Success depends on a constant stream of small and occasionally large failures; unfortunately, failure gets a bum rap.

Unless failure is understood and respected as an integral part of success, it 
will remain widely perceived as unnecessary, objectionable… something to be 
avoided at all costs. 

A proactive response to failure is impossible as long as you see failure only in 
negative terms.

Failure serves much the same purpose as pain in your body. Although 
you do not want to endure pain, you respond to it as a warning.

Just as pain and the prospect of pain help you to act in your body’s best interest, 
failure and the possibility of failure prompt action to avoid harm and promote progress.

But failure is more positive than pain, which is primarily a signal of physical problems rather than vitality. Failure steers you in positive directions and is a necessary and 
direct result of success.

Unfortunately, when we encounter failure, we tend to concentrate on the pain that 
this failure has caused instead of examining the reasons why.

Failure speaks volumes, but only when the student listens intently. Life is for learning, 
and failure can be your best teacher.

The best way to diffuse failure’s negative effects is to grasp the insight and information 
it offers. 

Failure counts because it provides relevant information and the new insights necessary 
to achieve success. 

The Moral?

You are rewarded with success based on your ability to understand and learn from failure!

Everything Counts!
