Nowadays it is underestimated the importance of failure in the learning process.

What's more.

I'm sure that you also see failure as a something to avoid at all costs.

The price you have to pay for hold this belief can be very high.

On a personal level.

Emotional.

Professional.

I also don't want to motivate you to fail as a prerequisite for success.

the importance of failure and error in order to learn

Today's society penalizes failure as an anticipation of the model that you should not follow.

Or what is the same thing.

As something that only happens to losers.

A self-fulfilling prophecy socially reserved for the worst.

And you don't want to be pigeonholed into that marginal group.

However, the failure to consider the importance of failure as a part of the road you have to travel to achieve your goals, it can be a mistake that will lead you precisely to not achieve them.

It's as simple as that.

The fear of failure does not bring you closer to success.

In the same way that his denial only makes you unnecessary stress that paralyzes you just when it's most important for you to move forward.

Consider the importance of failure in your learning process.

Failure is usually associated to error.

That which goes wrong and which makes us be perceived by others as undeserving of success.

But what happens is that the distance there is between what you perceive as wrong and right is fair. where learning takes place.

Think about it carefully.

If you are wrong you learn more than when you get it right.

Because in the end the get things right the first time only make you experience them in a certain way.

However, mistakes lead you through different paths to what you consider success.

Even those mistakes can lead you to discover a learning path on what doesn't work to make it work.

Double apprenticeship.

And this is where it resides the importance of failure and its proper management.

Since this fear paralyzes you and prevents you from getting down to work to move towards your goals.

The management of these expectations of failure is then fundamental to to allow you to move forward by making mistakes and learning from every mistake.

Without fear of what others think of it.

Another fundamental factor in this process of change.

But how to manage it?
