When Have You Failed? What Did You Learn From It?

In case you don't know who I am here is my intro post from way back:
BunnyPuncher Don’t worry your bunnies are “fairly” safe!

Story of an honest Steemian. Honesty in today's world it still exists!!

Sort:  

I've failed at lots of stuff, I've learned the deck is stacked against people who want to work for themselves.

I've failed at countless things. Often, I just learn what I can't do. Other times, I get lessons, often wrong.

You just planted 0.03 tree(s)!

I honestly don't remember when, As I have lately stopped looking into my past absolutely . I strongly believe the lessons that I have learnt in the past would remain with me always.

Result. I'm able to remain positive. I'm able to focus on what I need to do , based on what I wish experience in the future. Future seems less scary.

This is possible now. But earlier when I kept reflecting on my past, I couldn't shake off the fear of it happening again in the future. The question "what if?" used to keep arising in my mind.

I have faced financial issues, something which many believed that I would never be able to get out of. I have had sleepless nights tossing and turning in bed. I would wake up in the morning to feel an unknown fear deep within and I would feel butterflies in my stomach.

I mastered the art of being aware of my thoughts all the time. Any little thought of the past or future, I would quickly replace, by taking a book and reading something interesting , by engaging myself in some work which required me to be focused. Sometimes I would even start cleaning up my room, my cupboards, files. Just to do anything which would keep me focused on something else. I kept myself busy so that I would have no time to think about past or future.

Just living each day for its worth , doing what seemed right at the moment , practising being happy, not looking into the past nor future helped me slowly wade through the mess and reach a decent spot.

I can't say I'm completely out of it. But I can see that it's possible to reach higher grounds in 6 months. On and off I just look up to see where I'm heading and quickly go back to the present , to focus on what I am doing.

One failure that pained me alot was when I invested all my savings into forex trading. I thought I was going to make a huge profit from it because I had learned a lot about the market but my emotion made me lose all my money. The sad thing was, the more I lose my money, the more I pump money into it until my savings got blank. I learnt a very costly lesson to always learn how to cut down your loss and move on. If I had cut down my loss, I wouldn't have losed everything in my savings.

Good morning friends!
I share with you this experience:
It is very nice to make friends throughout your life, but unfortunately many of those friendships are a bad influence. I failed my mother, grandmother and my good friends when they recommended me to get away from them and that instead of going to class to the university I went with them to walk and drink. I had a terrible accident and while I was in bed I never had a visit of these who said they were friends. The only ones that were always present were my mother, grandmother and those true friends that I ignored when I was with the others ... this is just a summary because if I tell everything I extend a lot =)
I learned to value all the good advice of my family and friends and that I must know how to choose my friends well, and that until the sun of today I keep them and have supported me throughout my already finished career as an educator that I happened to receive yesterday as a graduate in education =) ... It was a relief to have told =)

From that failure, many important lessons we can take.

Congratulations to the winners, that's fine!

I learned to be more resilient and never give up

Nice topic
I've failed not practising so well for an exam which I nearly failed, but i got lucky with the pass mark, then I learnt not to take practising for an exam a joke.

Failure is human, therefore we learn from mistakes made as they serve as a lesson to stop falling into the same, life gives us tests that teach us to move forward and overcome those stages because that is what are errors, the stages that we are burning and that we see as mistakes but that in reality are learning from life.
