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!!


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)!

Thanks to @rufusfirefly

We have planted already 3727.82 trees
out of 1,000,000

Let's save and restore Abongphen Highland Forest

Thanks a lot!

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.

For every mistake made in life you learn to be more mature and solve those problems with better solutions
Forgive in a very important step.


Every day we learn something new. and Every day we start again. To have a better future. I have learned from my mistakes:

  • recognize and take responsibility for the error
  • ask for forgiveness if appropriate
  • learn from these "lessons learned"
  • Make new mistakes.

From the errors of Aprende

Almost all my life I have failed, I have had to live with my mistakes, learn, accept and follow, what else can be done!
Congratulations to all the winners, well, I like your contest, what good

Oh man, I have failed to god.

My breakup story explains this concept perfectly, my girlfriend who left me for another guy did think that it won't be easy for me to move on. I can say happily that my bounce back was superb because I found someone else who provides me with more comfort.

Life is not easy, but you have to be able to find yourself in it.

Its really nightmare for me , I left study was my mistake.

Thanks for the contest! Everyone fails at some point in your life, the key is to not let the failures destroy your determination. Have to keep trying.

My mistake was my boyfriend, thankGOD he is not in my life anymore. I learned from my experiance that girls should be carefully select boyfriend

Competition of selecting college team, and I faied, workhard and next year I seleted.

Excellent opportunity that you give us @bunnypuncher to all.

I was not failed yet , work hard and left on GOD , you will never failed.

Wel well welll, hope to win today because today is my birthday, so I did notlike to remember my failed day.

Always pray and be tough

Hello @bunnypuncher, very attractive and striking your post. I will follow you and participate in all of them. Greetings.

that sometimes there is only one way of doing things.

Failure is the first step of success.

Throughout my life I've been failing soo many things from major Exams, not getting picked for a job, failed investments/trading and many more. But one thing that I learned is that you can't have everything in life. You still have to be determined on what you are doing. All of us who are living right now will experience failure but the most important thing is to learn from it.

when I have failed I have learned many things which have allowed me to be who I am today and change many aspects of my life, things that did not let me grow as a person, I do not see failures as a mistake that I should regret and not look any more otherwise, the event should be watched learn, grow in experiences and overcome any obstacle, although it is also true that they say that the human being is the only one who stumbles 3 times with the same stone, there are also those who learn from their mistakes and see this as a lesson of life ...

of mistakes you learn and you shape yourself for success!

of the mistakes you always learn, they are like tests to take us to success

Just this afternoon when I tried to fix the roof. Ceiling has been leaking rain water a lot lately. I ended up damaging it more 😓

I learned to just leave some things done by the experts. (John)

When i failed to do any work or failed after doing a work then i try to find out what is the main fault of failing. What is the difficulty behind this. Is the solution of this problem is out of my range! After raising some of this questions i prepared myself to do it again without failure. If unlucky then the process is continue like a circle until i succeed. @bunnypuncher

Failure is a great opportunity to start again with more intelligence

Success is often achieved by those who do not know that failure is inevitable

A wise man said: Failure in a key part of life. If you do not fail, you do not learn and if you do not learn, you do not change.

only those who dare to have great failures end up achieving great successes.

I think we never learn at all, we fail and we fail again, we are masochists.

Failure is the key to success. Each error teaches us something

If at first you don't succeed try try again

“Me fail English? That’s unpossible.”

I failed today and I learnt that the omega star by Philip Shen is not a model suitable for origami earrings.

I've failed a lot in life, but I've always learned from mistakes to keep going and surpass myself!

I mostly fail when I trying to get success so quick in term of money, then with time I learn that i can not be successful so quick because it of the step I make either push me forward or pull me backward.. So I will always choose to failing forward. Success comes from the number of fail a man makes without giving up and changing his strategies.

Thank you for being so generous and kind bunny :) hope to be one of your lucky winners

I fail on average once a day, and learn from it in average every third time... I'm a little stubborn :P

I motivated from a flowing river..........it cannot flow in its reverse direction...........that is why we have to go straight toward our goal............. 😄😄😄😄

Keep a positive mind

I failed when I opened a booster pack and only received one rare. Sad, sad day...

The only way to fail is to meaningfully do something you know you shou ldnt. If you try your best to achief something and you didnt get youre goal you didnt fail but you didnt reach your goal. Failing is a neggitif word.

Most of the times were new disciplines where the method of study changed and I didn't do great on the test. I learned new ways to study... adapting!!

literally (I fell) scratched my knee in college and left me a great life experience.
by the way my last post I talk about everything that happened to me and my final achievement ...

All the time. Not sure about the second part of the question...

Failure is a very positive thing . It always makes you learn something . For every successful man there is a always a failure behind .

2 day's ago, I have sent a 11 sbd to wrong account @payment from @bittrex. This happen made very unhappy. I am so poor.

There was my mistake, I thought address means memo I typed here "payment"
and I typed on tag "akbarbadsha"

If I typed my accountname akbarbadsha on address. Then I could save my sbd.

I have learned from this mistake.

Failures are part of the growth of people, you have to know how to take the good and discard it bad from your mistakes

I have failed hen i appeared first for prelimnary medical test . i learn that success is not final and failure is not permanent.


The person who fails and analyzes his failures will certainly learn from his mistakes and not repeat them in the future, at least if he is unyielding to achieve the label of success.

Lessons learned from failure are probably the most valuable "investments" to achieve success. Probably more valuable than the funds injected by any investor.

People who have failed will of course be more careful to determine every next step. There is an entrepreneurial principle that says "run a new thought", I try to interpret it to "fail first, think why, achieve subsequent success".

the failure that I face of course the analysis has been done. All "why" and "why" try to be observed. Whether I will keep my brand with a similar product or pivot to a different method is something that is currently being thought of. At least I know there is something wrong with the method I previously did and I will not repeat. Whatever learning outcomes we get, we are sure to make sure that the next step does not lead to similar failures.

I fail everyday to reach my goals. That's OK, because they are long term goals and each day I get a step closer to them.

Of course, we all have failed, but when you fail, do you learn from the failure? Many people see their failure just as a mistake. They do not see failure as an opportunity to produce something better if the same opportunity comes later.

There's nothing wrong with you. If you have failed, it is just an indication that your approach is wrong and you can do better in the future.

If you are afraid of failure, then you will never get a positive inspiration that will encourage you to succeed in life.

I figured out how much SP it would take to give my 2 cents (upvote). Set that as my goal. Got that much SP, but my vote was only worth 1 cent because the price of SP had come down.

  • You should set your goal is the end result, not the stepping stone.

Makin’ random comments and many times with how to not peck up for the next time.

When you fail, it actually helps you find your mistakes. You just have to take the right approach to observe your mistakes and do your best to avoid mistakes in the future.

I think we all have failed in many things. Correct and move on.

People who give up after failure will automatically "lose" and tend to be afraid to start. Failure can teach you to choose the best and precise way you need to follow to get what you want.

I have learned that I must be wrong more often, to get more experience and to act with more excellence.

The people who are most successful in life are usually the ones that have failed the most - but have the tenacity to keep going through it all.

i failed when the time i didn't accept of who really am and what i learned is that you need to accept yourself to know how to handle life.

I failed beign social, but i learned how to be more dynamic.

I am competitive by nature so any time i fail, i get right back at it to beat it!

I fail all the time never learned from any of it lol

I learned a lot because each failure in life leaves you learning and those who do not see it that way are wrong and will continue to fail all their life ... I think that my greatest learning was obtained from my failures.

It's only after you've failed at everything that you can accomplish something. Unless you've got mad skills and talent. Then jealousy beats you down.

I think that my greatest learning was obtained from my failures, we all made mistakes and you must learn to rectify but understanding that this is the law of life, making mistakes, falling, getting up and learning from mistakes.

I learn a way in which I should not do what I set out to do and then I look for another way in which I can do it. Failure and overcoming it strengthens you.


You have to learn from mistakes.

Life goes on ;p

Time is ticking, but we are still young :))

I've failed severally in keeping relationship because I used to have this idea that I could always do it on my own and I losed so many wonderful people that I shut out as a result of such attitude. But now I've realized that one can hardly make it in life without the input of other people. So I do treat my relationships with care now better than I did some few years ago.

It's worth talking about your experiences.

I am beautiful , I love money ;)

I'm Trump. I never fail.

Retro gaming is here <3 !

You learn when you want. Many give up, but I learned not to give up.

When I was about 8 I tried to smoke a cigarette. Issue was... I tried to smoke it filter side first! Lol! What I learned was, smoking is bad, especially if you’re bad at it... :P

My intro in crypto was lets say less than graceful. Learned to not day trade with a full-time job!

when I failed to secure a job, I was feeling like shit. I thought I have done all the hardwork in the world but didn't turn up well. So I waited patiently, believed in God and finally secured job in one of the topmost automobile companies of the world.

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

My second job did not go so well. I learned many things from this experience, and I know more about the type of job I want to get in the future.

I would say I fail weekly as far as it comes to dietary and fitness goals. Of course the lesson learned here is to not become discouraged. It is a marathon and not a sprint.

It's 3 a.m. ... do you know where your meowster is?

I generally fail every day. You learn that it's not really that big of a deal. Just keep failing and learning.
What I mean by that is, if you are not making mistakes every day and flat out failing occasionally, then you are not working hard enough, pushing hard enough, or growing fast as you could.

I have failed so hard and so many times that I have even written a song about it, and how I overcame at the end of my failure.
The opening line says: " My everything goes wrong, been doing it so long, so now I write a song to try to reach to you..."
you bet I have failed...

I failed my cupcakes!! I totally forgot to add in the baking soda!!! It did not rise to the fluffiness i wanted, rather the cupcake just got densed just like a brownie.. and the saddest part is that the cuppies are for the 1st birthday of ky son today! No more time to bake the next batch.

Lesson learned?? Dont be too confident on your brain's capacity to remember, write down the recipe and follow strictly 🤣

Mine biggest failure was a relationship, I was so keen to have an other half, even though I know it wasn't prefect, I thought I can do this, this is how relationships are. I wasted 2 years of my life and partners life, to tell them they weren't the one. Always be yourself and everything else will follow. Love, laughter and happiness.

Life moves on. That's what I've learned.
