How do you feel about failure? It’s not something many people enjoy, yet it is something we all have to deal with. Absolutely everyone fails at something at some point. Maybe there are some people who don’t ever seem to fail, but they definitely have moments you may not know about that are less successful. With all the failure in the world, we might start to think that things aren’t looking too good. But is there another side to failure? What are the benefits to losing? As it turns out, failure is the way we learn. If you talk to successful people, they’ll often describe their first attempts as being failures, but they learned and kept going. Feeling the occasional pain of failure allows us to appreciate fully the joy of success. Here on the Apple Seed we have put together a few stories that may not seem like successes at first, but things turned around with some new ideas and a little work.
