The Power of Failure

One day I'm going to write a book called "The Power of Failure." It's about all the ways failing in everything is good for you. Here's a little preview.

1. If you failed at something it means you tried something
This is pretty simple. You can't fail without trying, and if you keep failing at stuff, that means you keep trying stuff. Eventually something is going to work out for you.

2. You learn from failing
I really don't need to elaborate. You know as well as I do, that most things you know, you learned from your mistakes.

3. Talking about your failures makes people want to help you
This is difficult, since being negative makes people hate you. But if you manage to talk about your failures without being negative everyone will want to help you, and when people start helping you, they never stop. Helping is addictive.

4. Failure makes you motivated
Right after failure, you feel really motivated for a while. You just need to succeed to make up for your failure. You want to work harder and harder, until you get it right.

5. Failure is good for art
The best art is often about people expressing negative feelings. Just think, how many songs are about failing in love. Sometimes failure gives you the feelings you need to make a great piece of art.

6. Failure is interesting
Some of my most vivid memories are of failing. I think the same goes for you. Think, how boring your life would have been without all these experiences.
