Responsibility – we have to be accountable for our own actions – successes and failures. Failures will cause us to have to deal with discomfort but it can also be a great motivator.
Coping Skills – When things don’t go our way it is only natural to feel sadness, anger, frustration, etc. These feelings are part of life, and we all have to learn to live with them. Experiencing failures will help us to develop important coping skills, which we will need time and time again in life.
Learn to Adapt – Life doesn’t always go as planned. In order to live a full life, we all need to learn how to change and adapt when things don’t go as we hoped. Making mistakes allows us to roll with the punches and adapt to the unexpected.
Learn Not to Fear Failure – If we think that the only thing that matters is not making mistakes or not succeeding we will be afraid to fail and may not try new things. It is people who have failed repeatedly who have changed the world and discovered new and better ways of doing things.
