One of the biggest lessons I have learnt in life from entrepreneurship is that failure always leaves a hidden hint.
I have heard this quote “failure is key to success” for many times, but seldom had I realized how it would lead to success.
Every time I experienced failure, it always left me with one of the two contexts –
- Stress and Regret for my failure
- Hint to resolve this failure which could as well be the key to my success.
#1 is the default context I had usually operated from, owing to the frequent failures I had had in the last three years of my startup journey, which has changed my brain pattern to shift from #1 to #2.
How did this shift happen? I believe it is the acceptance of failures, with a constant drive of perseverance and passion towards the ideas for my startup.
