Failure is An Opportunity to Grow

Updated: Nov 29, 2021

Self-Reflection Questions:


1. Why do I avoid situations that might result in failure? What am I actually afraid of?

2. What would I accomplish if I weren’t afraid to fail?

3. What can I learn from my last significant failure?



Here are some affirmations and thoughts that may help you use your failures to propel you:


  • My failures make me stronger.

  • The only downside to failure is that my objective might take longer to achieve than I hoped. I consider all other aspects of failure to be positive. Failure makes me stronger in several different ways.

  • I learn something when I fail. Every failure provides information that can be applied to my next attempt.

  • Failure is a process of learning. I am eager to learn as much as I can, because it makes me a more capable person. Failure also brings me closer to success. If I am willing to fail enough times, I am assured of success.

  • When I fail, I become mentally stronger.

  • Failure builds my mental toughness in unique and powerful ways.

  • Each time I fail, I am provided with an opportunity to learn how to persevere.

  • Failure reminds me that I am strong. Because every failure provides an easy excuse for quitting, yet I refuse to quit, I strengthen my resolve, tenacity and resilience.

  • Each time I continue after a failure, I become more resistant to giving up in the future. I know how to persevere.

  • Failure makes me stronger for the future. Each time I fail and continue, I become more capable. I am determined to become very skilled at making the most of my failures.

  • Today, I am willing to fail in a big way because I know the value of trying and I know that the benefits of failure outweigh the costs.
