Practice. Fail. Learn. Repeat.

in LeoFinance6 months ago

Even though ways to reach success are different and may vary from person to a person, there are similarities that shouldn't be missed. In fact, nobody can reach the top without these four things you read in the title. Just like when we all learned how to walk, we fell many times until we were able to get from point A to point B without crashing on our butts midway. It's the same with everything - talking, writing, reading, drawing, and even eating. It took a lot of failed attempts to finally get that food in your mouth without getting it on your clothes.

Practice

No matter what you want to do in your life, you can only do it once you start doing it. It sounds strange when you write it down but it's true. If you want to become an artist, you have to draw and paint consistently over a long period of time until one day you reach the point where your art is appreciated and sold for millions (or to million people for 1$).

The point is, you have to start something to become something. Want to have an online income? Start learning about all the different ways on how one can do it. Want to be a blogger? A writer? Start by writing every single moment you have an opportunity to do it. Put in the hours, it will be rewarding!

Fail

Once you've started doing things, it's inevitable that you'll fail. When it happens, don't get discouraged. It's a natural way of growing. It's how we've always improved ourselves and all the technologies we're using. The road to success is not straight, it goes up and down and then circulates all around and repeats.

It's important to enjoy the whole process. False expectations from yourself can lead you to forget about your dreams when they don't come true. Don't expect something will happen, you don't have time for that. You have to work your way up to become the best version of yourself. It's simple - just be better than you were yesterday.

Learn

When you're ready to stand up and keep going, do it! Analyze your mistakes and ask yourself why things went wrong. Do a little brainstorm on how you'll improve next time and simply do it. Draw another drawing. Write another article. Create a new application. Whether it's writing or cycling that pumps your blood and lights a spark in your mind, you have to do keep doing it.

Next time you'll come to a similar point to where you were when you failed, you'll make a wiser choice because of your previous experiences. You'll take more things into consideration, things you didn't think of the first time you were there. You'll grow.

Repeat

Get it going! Repeat this cycle of practicing, failing, and learning until you're not failing anymore. When it happens, you'll find yourself a new challenge to overcome. If you become a world-known author, you'll set new goals and things to practice. If you're a good person, you'll probably help other people get out of the struggle. But what is success? How does it determine you?

Even though society puts pressure on us to have branded items and only the best shoes to be successful, for me success is when you don't have to worry about the pressure of society. Sadly, most often it takes money. You can easily do it once you have enough assets to live freely. No debts to pay and no salary to wait only to pay the bills and then struggle for half a month.

And you don't have to have a big house to do it, you can easily live in a small forest cabin if it's comfortable. What matters is your family and your loved ones - if your love is strong, and you are there for each other, it's a success that we often forget about. I want to ensure my parents are financially safe and give them a beautiful time together where they don't have to go to work every day. It's one of my goals and I know that with hard work and consistency, everything's possible!


Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day!

This is great advice thanks for sharing

I never thought of it this way but you are so right. It reminds of the say that goes "try and try again until you get it right". I don't know who said it or even if it's worded correctly but this is what everyone should do and I remember my other telling me this many times when I was young. Great post @bagofincome!!

It's right - I think everyone who succeeds can say it in the end.

Thank you for your warm comment! Have a great day ahead!

I have encourage people on my list to not let fear of failure stop them, saying that we all make mistakes. Failure, mistakes, call it what you want but look at them as opportunities for learning.

And you're right. We're all learning and everyone's in a different place on their journey.

Thanks for reading a leaving comment!

I hope that many people will read this post before falling victim to one of the many false promises of overnight riches that we find so abundantly online.

This is an excellent post! It is well written and drives the message home...loud and clear. There is only one TRUE way to success, and that is by taking action and doing the work. And failure is part of the route on your way to success. Accept it, make peace with it, and then keep on keeping on!

We tend to become obsessed with failure (or rather the fear of failing). We should rather look past (beyond) failure and focus on success. As you explain it so well in this post, failure is just part of the journey through practicing and learning.

There is a saying that I love. It says: "I never lose. I win or I learn". I guess in the context of this post you can also say; "I never fail. I achieve success or I learn."

FAILURE is never final until you decide to quit. And through PRACTICING you will LEARN to turn all those failures into success by REPEATING all the positive results you achieve and eliminating the mistakes you have made.

Thank you for sharing this great post with us!

Thank you for coming here! It's definitely important to understand it before you give up. Most of the people here already know it because their experiences have proved it. And with our actions - we're setting our own examples!

Thank you once again for your thoughtful comment! Have a great day/night ahead!

I couldn't agree with this more. Success comes in different forms & there's no cookie cutter version of it. I know my definition of it is completely different from the person next to me. There's no right or wrong answer, either. That's the beauty of it. :)

The factors you listed that go into working towards your goals & vision of success are very important. It is not an easy path. We will hit obstacles along the way or just challenges in themselves. Failure is actually necessary to grow & learn. Without them, we may never achieve the full potential we discover within ourselves along the way. I think of them as "learning opportunities."

Showing up & being consistent are two very important things. They are crucial to working towards those goals. The first step is always the hardest ... but worth it :)

Thank you for an awesome post! I am really enjoying your content. Keep up the great work & have an awesome day! :)🧡

Thank you for your lovely comment! Keeping up just as we speak!

You too, have a beautiful day!

Great post! This is the circle of life :) These steps are necessary, and they are repetitive, as you said... But is impossible to avoid them... So, embrace all of them, and push through failures, and practice and learn new things and improve the old ones...

Btw. your title reminded me on this song :)

Very good and very true post! You have really hit the nail on the head. I once heard the definition of a successful person was the one who fell down 99 times but gets back up 100 times. Congratulations on having your post selected today for the CTP Talk Wheel of Engagement.
