For many, failure is the worst possible outcome of any venture or effort. Just the fear of failure is what keeps some individuals from ever taking risks. But failure is a chance to learn and grow. Some of history’s greatest minds and leaders were also people who failed. We’ve shared some of their insights with you.

“Failure is a bruise, not a tattoo.” –Jon Sinclair
Bruises are ugly and they hurt, but they fade in time. Failure is temporary and it doesn’t determine the course of your life. Just as the body heals from a bruise, your defeated spirit will also heal from failure. You simply have to let it.

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that don’t work.” –Thomas Edison
Think of failure as information. It is feedback that tells you what did or did not work in regards to achieving a specific goal. Use the information wisely. 

My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.” – Abraham Lincoln
Failure is a lesson in acceptance. Those who are able to move on from failure are those who have accepted their losses. One can learn to acknowledge and live with failure without succumbing to its disappointments.

“Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, only this time more intelligently.”– Henry T Ford
Every failure opens up the chance to try again. Failure is simply the next step to a fresh start. Embrace failure as you might an exciting new opportunity.

“Your success is not final—nor is your failure.” – George Matthew Adams
Failure is not the final end. Failure is merely the end of a very specific attempt at something. You can and you will survive failure. It just takes a little courage.  Attitude is what carries you through.
