Making the Best of an Epic Fail

Don’t Let an Epic Fail Hold You Back!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.” If your recent attempt at greatness has turned into an epic fail, then what I’m about to tell you will hopefully incite you to persevere, as Emerson’s quote suggests. Here’s how to make the best of an epic fail!

If you know you’re meant to do something—if you can’t sleep, eat or stop talking about a passion—then you owe it to yourself (and the world) to keep trying. And if you need an incentive to “keep on keepin’ on,” then let me assure you that when it comes to epic fails, you’re in really good company.

Some Famous Examples of Epic Fails

If you’re looking for examples of people who have suffered an epic fail or two (or more) and persevered, you needn’t look far. Plenty of famous people have overcome failure and changed not only their lives, but the lives of others as well.

Walt Disney was once fired for his inability to be creative.

R.H. Macy failed at several retail-related projects and start-ups before starting the retail giant we know as Macys.

Henry Ford almost ruined his professional reputation after several failed attempts at success. Later, he not only founded the Ford Motor Company, he revolutionized the entire auto industry with production line manufacturing.

The one thread that links every one of these people is their belief in their own ability and their unwillingness to quit, even when everyone else told them that they probably should quit.

And if you think it takes money or knowing someone important to overcome epic fails and become successful, how about J.K. Rowling? When she wrote the first Harry Potter book, she was a waitress who was also receiving public assistance. Did her book get rejected? Yes, and plenty of times. How did she make the best of an epic fail? Being rejected made her spirit stronger for the next attempt. She believed in herself even when others didn’t, and the remarkable worldwide success of her books confirms her belief in her own ability to succeed. She said, “Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential.”

If you feel like failure is not an option, you need to have a game plan. Create one with Psychic Phoebe ext. 5231.

Fun Facts About Failure

People who have tried and failed multiple times before succeeding have a willingness to persevere and are unwilling to accept failure when it comes to living their dreams. Here’s something else to think about: People who have tried and failed can be sure of this:

1. They’re already more successful than someone who has never tried.

2. Their next attempt at success will not have the same mistakes and pitfalls of previous attempts. We gain knowledge through each epic fail.

3. If they’re passionate about their goals, any feeling of failure will eventually fade as their desire to succeed becomes stronger.

Sweet Success

So if you have a dream to which you devote all your spare time, all your passion and all your energy and it hasn’t quite turned out the way you wanted, make the best of the knowledge you gain in failure, adjust your actions if need be and just keep trying. If you want to accomplish something badly enough, you will succeed. Success may be sweet, but it’s never quite as sweet as when it follows an epic fail.

    Yes, live your passion! Also stay open to the feedback of others, your true gift may be something else, maybe something you take for granted.

    A man studied for a master’s in music, only to be told his voice wasn’t right for opera. He returned to school to become a minister and found satisfaction in wearing fancy robes and singing the liturgy every Sunday. He also found a gift for giving inspiring sermons and a role as a respected community leader, that might not have surfaced otherwise.

    Yes, learn from your failures! Identify the causes and research, read, try new methods. Ignore the opinions of ignorant or envious people but do look for mentors, ask advice from someone older who has accomplished similar goals.

    What an inspiring and motivating article, thank you so much for this as it will help a lot of people in this world.

    It has reminded me of my journey: After two and a half years of constant learning, improving and most importantly – never giving up, I have sold over 150 books in the past 12 weeks.

    So, never give up because whatever you want to achieve in life, you CAN do it. :-)

    The true failure is when you just ‘give up’ on life and let the bad times rule your everyday life.
    Things don’t always go our way and life is just terribly unfair at times, but we must pick ourselves up and brush off the dust and keep plodding along, never giving in to the idea
    that we are a failure just because something didn’t turn out the way we wanted it to.

    God bless all that are stumbling and frustrated with life. Keep on trucking and don’t give in
    to despair. Everything has a way of working itself out with time and a positive attitude.

    It’s my thinking that everyone is on this planet not only to learn more about ourselves and our strengths and weaknesses but to improve. Through this learning we are to help others and not be selfish.

    I have been telling people for years that every failure is a lesson and to take time to look at it and learn. the next time it comes around you will be able to look at it better and learn more. it doesn’t seem to fall on ears that wasn’t to believe. their loss. because I will keep telling people. some listen to me and some walk. I believe it takes getting over SELF. THEY WOULD RATHER WHINE ABOUT IT. and some are just not strong enough and some have to have a army to lean on, which doesn’t mine they ever get it. NO FAITH IN OUR HIGHER POWER AND SPIRIT.

    I agree with this information on pushing on through and learning from mistakes. Barring an epic failure, my quest is to begin a blog. One, for me, the other to help my sister Amanda, share her survival from cancer at 13 months.
