Motivational Quotes To Get You Going
Who doesn’t love good motivational quotes to help you move forward? When it comes to failure, check out quotes from some of the greatest minds and how these motivational quotes can help you get back up, dust yourself, and move on to bigger things!
Often you’ll hear people talking about failure more than success.
Failure is at the front of our minds in the current success-obsessed culture.
We fear it, we try to avoid it at all costs and every time it happens to us, we start to question our abilities and the purpose of our work.
The truth is that no success has ever been achieved without failure. For Edison, it took 10,000 attempts to create a light bulb before he succeeded. As Edison proves, failure is simply a necessary stepping stone to success!
Here are some inspirational quotes about failure to keep you motivated when it seems that you’ll never succeed.
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” – Thomas A. Edison
Attempts at creating something are just as important as the final creation – after all, it would never come to you in this shape or form if not for all these failed attempts.
“What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?” – John Green
If you’re afraid of failure, you’ll never embrace your potential and instead waste years of your life thinking whether you’re good enough to try living your dream. Don’t follow this road and simply get closer to your dream.
“If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.” – Ken Robinson
Innovation is based on brainstorming crazy ideas. If you close your mind to these ideas, you’ll stifle your creativity and prevent your brain from coming up with new exciting concepts.
“When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important.” – Ellen DeGeneres
There are people who are content not to ever take risks in their lives. But do they feel a rush of excitement? Does blood pump faster in their veins as they’re realizing a project that takes them closer to their dream? Hardly. Failure is part of risk-taking, and it’s definitely worth it.
“It’s not how far you fall, but how high you bounce that counts.” – Zig Ziglar
We all make mistakes and experience failure. But not all of us have the strength to bounce back from it and accomplish even more. This willingness and energy is what counts and brings you closer to success.
“If you fall, fall on your back. If you can look up, you can get up.” – Les Brown
Failure can come in many forms and how you fall in part depends on you – your approach and perspective. If you’re careful, rising up from failure will be easier than you’d ever expect.
“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping-stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.” – Johnny Cash
Even if failures are an important part of your learning experience, you shouldn’t think about them too much and allow them to cloud your judgment about the present. Leave them in the past and take the essential lessons with you.
“No human ever became interesting by not failing. The more you fail and recover and improve, the better you are as a person. Ever meet someone who’s always had everything work out for them with zero struggle? They usually have the depth of a puddle. Or they don’t exist.” – Chris Hardwick
People who glide through life and achieve everything they want are a rare breed. There’s always a price to pay for success and this usually comes in failure – and we’re not talking one or two errors in between a stream of success. Failures help us grow and become more rounded human beings. Don’t close yourself to the possibility of failure – use it as your strength.
“Giving up is the only sure way to fail.” – Gena Showalter
Sure, there are people who never fail hard. But they also don’t achieve anything remarkable either. If you’re considering giving up on your dream, you should know that this would be the biggest failure of all because there’s no bouncing back from that.
Failure is a condition for growth and success.
If you realize its value, you’ll be on your way to stop fearing it and embrace it as a necessary part of the learning process – and life!
