How to use failure to succeed


Do you know that most successful people on this planet do perform well when faced with failure ?

Do you know that every individual’s fight or flight instincts comes from individual adrenaline surge, which is triggered by the effects of fear and fright ?

Well don’t ask me because I am not a psychiatric doctor. But I will sufficiently tell you this; as this is what happens to me when I am faced with fear of failure.

My instincts get to be stronger and my sensory perception tends to be sharper. Combined with time factors and the very need of the matter at hand, plus my brain storming and problem solving ability  has never been better.

Yes believe it or not that’s what happens….

I don’t know about you but read along.

Perhaps at the end of this post you may find out what is driving you as well.

Still here ?

Good Let go ….because you deserve to know !!


Why Am I  Posting This Today ?

why ?


This post was inspired by the following recent findings I ‘ve just discovered over the past two months as a result of my research on my on going work in progress eBook where I intend to help people succeed in online business.

I discovered that:

  • People are afraid of failure
  • That people are afraid of success (can you believe that ?)
  • That people easily give up when hit by failure
  • Some people has no idea how to deal with failure
  • A lot of people has no idea how to flip failure to success
  • Lots of people fail to take action because of fear of failure


Purpose Of This Post Today

At the end of this post, you should be able to learn how to:-

  • Understand failure
  • How to flip failure to success
  • How to take action despite all odds


Understanding Failure

Understanding failure

According to “Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success”.

I am sure you do not want me to bore you with various authoritative definitions of failure because that is not the objective of this post today.

By that I meant that the truth is, you do not need me or any one else to tell you what failure is.



Because you are probably experiencing one at moment. Or you just came out of one recently.

May be perhaps  you are battling yours while searching for some solution or how to cope. Which is why you landed on this page today.


For example:-

As an Internet Marketing Entrepreneur and an Online Business Strategist, I have had my own share of failures and still open for more should another pop up by the corner.

The only different now is that I knows exactly where I am heading to, how to get there and where I need to be in both short and long term strategic plan.

Before now ?

I only started this blog site January this year and I am quit happy with how far I have come and the direction I am going.

And believe me. The future is very bright !!


Why ?

Because before January this year I went through tirades of fire and brimstones of failures while trying to not only find how to make extra income online, but at least in trying to set up a descent website blog like this one for starters sake.

I have bought shit loads of shiny objects that promised me six figure within one month.

Turned out to be a total hokum !!

Yea ! A total and complete waste of precious time and money !!

Hell !! I even bought one that promised the whole “shebang” which include a guarantee that I will be making money while I am asleep with yet more promises of how  I can just install and forget done for you software.

I  wish ……..

plus ofcos at a very nice hefty premium indeed.

Yep !

“Because there are no such thing as something for nothing” ! I am sure Napoleon Hills’s Think And Grow Rich will clear the air on that quote.

You can imagine how lame I was plus the emotion I went through when I realised that its all just another rubbish designed to take my  hard earned money….

End result was abysmal failure……..

I have to literally close everything down and took a break from anything online business and in fact I actually gave up at some point which nearly span to a month.

enough is enough


I was angry, annoyed, had enough of these self acclaimed internet opportunist, plus I had no clue or were to go for help and I nearly auctioned the hell out of my laptop on the good old eBay …

Imagine that !?


Facing Failure Direct

Now do you understand  what failure really is ? Can you relate to that ? How downing one can feel when failure hits one in the face ?



Yes I have failed online a lot and bought the T-shirt and guess what ? I am actually glad today that I did …..

Your Failures might not be in the same fashion, perhaps in other career pursuit or the other personal goals and accomplishments but when you fail at something, you failed; and the feeling is the same.

To better help you understand what failure is, I will like to do that by asking you these basic questions.

  1. Are you happy with your job right now ?
  2. Are you contented with your salary at work today ?
  3. Are you happy with where you are in life right now ?
  4. Have you reached the Maslow’s “Self Actualization Stage” in the hierarchy of need ? (meaning you have achieve the absoluteness of your life achievements)
  5. Have you wanted something so bad that you have failed several times trying to achieve that one thing ?
  6. Have you reached your goals this year yet ?
  7. What is the main challenge or obstacle that is standing before you and your success right now ?
  8. Have you made enough money to keep and support you and your family without worrying for another 20yrs or more ?
  9. Are you making the kind of money you have always wanted to sufficiently make each month ?
  10. Have you done or achieve something that gave you that self satisfaction of achievement which you believed will help others today ?
  11. How many times did you give up on something you have always wanted to finish but couldn’t due to perpetual failures ?


I can go on and on like our very popular 50cent’s 21 questions here and there today but still I wont be able to exhaust all the lists.

But the facts are these questions has probably touched a cord in your life right now and I am sure you are in the right frame of mind to follow me into the next sub-heading because it is going to get even hotter ……

In my mind’s eyes I know where I am going and where I need to be. Physically I do not know how to get there and no clue on how to begin.. but…..

Still yet I kept an open mind and blocked out all negativities by staying focus and positive towards what I want.

I was relentless in my pursuit and with constant persistence I know one day I will find the right truthful and honest help I needed.
