Have you failed?
One of the worst things I find is that people, especially college students, feel like they fail a lot. Some people think that they should not do things because they fail. But success is a bunch of failures that are put together to make something work for you. This is my idea anyway.
In an article from “Faculty Focus”, there is an article about Failure is an Option.
In this article, it explains that failure is the best teacher. In that article, it talks about how the person failed at doing home maintenance. Now can you imagine that? Let us see, what did he do wrong. Here is my version of failing at home intense.
Fixing pipes: Okay there is a pipe with a hole in it. Let's repair it. Okay, what to do. Go to YouTube and look up pipe repair. He falls asleep during the video because it is boring. He tries to watch it again. He misses a step. His wife comes over and says "Honey, did you figure out how to fix the pipe?" In which he replies, "Oh, yea. Simple. I can have it done in a matter of minutes." He gets his supplies and goes down to fix the pipe. He forgets to bring the glue down to put the pipe together. He figures that is not important. So he goes and replaces the pipe. He gets done and looks at his handiwork. Turns on the water and what happens? The basement is flooded! Something wrong. Okay, failure. Go back to the drawing board!
Okay, so that is a simple little funny failure. But we are faced with failure all the time. The problem is that when we fail in school we are reprimanded. Teachers say we should not fail. We should pay attention and follow directions to pass the course.
Okay, but the way to learn something is to fail at it. Teachers in school, College as well as the lower levels of school, teach students that failure is a bad thing. So students have a hard time in school. Failing in school is just one of the things that really is not supposed to be reprimanded.
Everyone is not good at everything. Everyone who tries and fails is not bad. So if you are in school or anywhere else, and you fail at something, congratulations! You are among many famous people.
So what do you do when you are failing? Learn from it first of all. Then realize that you are not perfect. No one is. There was only one perfect person on Earth and he was killed for that. Jesus Christ was the only perfect person. So if you are here on Earth, you will make mistakes, you will fail! This is the truth.
Now that does not mean to go out and intentionally fail. You must do your best at what you are doing. Put your best foot forward, fall down a lot, but get yourself up and get back on that horse! Try, try, and try again. This is how you succeed.
So, you want to learn more about failures and failing? Or should I say taking Challenges? There are several books on that topic. Some of them include:
- Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T Kiyosaki
- Entre Leadership by Dave Ramsey
- Good to Great by Jim Collins
These are just a few books on how to overcome failures and make money too. Or should I say that you could make money, but they teach you about how they failed. And how they overcame things. And you can too! Okay, now for a break. These are some funnies that I found and thought you would enjoy.
So here is some humor for you.
Now for some college humor.

Here is a video on why people don’t follow you.
