This article is about why experiences that seem like a setback are opportunities to grow and why seeing the value in these experiences can help you reach your goals.
Failure allows learning
People used to learn more effectively through their mistakes. It was common practice to make mistakes and then observe, making mental notes about what happened to you and what you could do in the future to avoid them. Nowadays, we tend to expect that everything will go right the first time around and often get frustrated or angry when it does not.

Failure provides room for improvement
Steph Korey says that the pain of failing and the learning opportunity are essential prerequisites to success. He says, “If we all wind up being very successful in life, it’s tough to explain how we got there because we didn’t do anything different.” It is important to recognize that failure isn’t something to be ashamed of or avoid but rather a necessary step toward success.
I don’t care about Hunter Biden. Nor do I care about his laptop.
But that Twitter, under the aegis of fighting “misinformation,” banned a major newspaper for reporting something that turned out to be true should seriously worry those still advocating similar forms of censorship.

Without Failure winning is not garanteed
According to Steph Korey, failures make you tougher and can provide you with a valuable perspective on the world. He says that “the best way to learn is to fail because you realize what not to do. The most important thing to learn is what not to do.” Steph Korey believes that you cannot become successful without the experience of failure. He says, “If you have never failed, you have never taken a risk. If you have never taken a risk, you have not created anything.” He also believes that if we continue to make the same mistakes over and over again, we’ll eventually stop realizing our potential.
We all want to believe that we can avoid failure and become successful, but this is not the case. It is important to recognize that failure is not always a bad thing and can be the building block of your success. You can learn from past mistakes and prepare for future successes by allowing yourself to fail.
