Reasons why people may fail?
- Peer pressure: Each person has a different level of aptitude and capability to learn. Your friend may be good in academics but might lack creativity skills. You might be creative but may not have an inclination towards bookish knowledge. So, identify your potential and hone your skills.
- Goal-setting: Mostly, an individual is not independent in determining personal goals. Parents decide educational goals, friends determine social goals, and the society decides after-life goals (i.e. how you should be remembered by others after you die). Amidst all this, where do YOU feature? Despite being free, you are not allowed to decide what’s good or bad for you. It is high time when you take a step to change this trend.
- Procrastination: Obviously, if you fail once, you will have to put in extra efforts to build your potential. This effort requires a focused and disciplined approach. Are you ready?
- Negative attitude: When you fail once, it is human nature to feel discouraged. Nobody wants to fail willingly. But has anybody stopped you from trying once more?
All in all, failure is not something to panic about. Accept your strengths and weaknesses. If you face challenges in identifying these factors, take help from your teacher/mentor/family/friends.
