12 Comments to Twack Says Don’t Be Afraid To Fail

  1. Hello Twack :),

    I really enjoyed reading your post as it was motivating and invigorating>

    I am learning now to see failure as bringing me closer to success and i agree with what you said about the numbers game as it holds true and confirms Pareto 80-20 law.

    Most things i have learned i did by failing first at it but with repeated tries you get to know what doesn’t work and this brings you closer to what does work.

    1. I am pleased you enjoyed the post and I am glad that you have commented, as now I have learned something new, which is always nice. I was aware of the 80/20 split but did not know it was called the Pareto Principle, very cool. You are bang on as well, every fail brings you closer to a win.

      Be well.

  2. You know, Twack, I believe that so many people “fail” because they don’t get up, just like you said.  They just say, “This doesn’t work,” or “I just can’t do it.”  Other people can, but not me!  That’s just silly.  The only reason other people can is because they DO get back up.  Especially in the world of online marketing.  Very few people, if any, are instant successes.  Unfortunately, many of the websites out there spout a bunch of garbage about how they will help you earn thousands of dollars in days.  It’s just simply not true, but it gets people’s expectations up.

    Anyway, your article was really spot on, and I hope a lot of people read it and take it to heart.  Your website is very cool, and I think it will help a lot of people.

    1. You’re spot on, it’s up to us and no one else. I know it’s easier said than done, sometimes. I would rather keep failing than not try at all. How will you ever push those boundaries  to success. Good point you make, also, about all the ‘hype’ that is out there. Unfortunately the sites you refer to, have some success in finding those who are looking to realise their dreams, only to find that ‘all that glitters is not gold’ Thank you for your kind words.

      Be well.

  3. I really loved these motivational lines. I’ve been dealing with failure myself and the best example is in affiliate marketing. My first websites weren’t very successful – and looking back now, I realize it was only the lack of experience that made them so. That’s why I consider them failures, but failures that taught me something. There’s a saying that I personally love “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” so I think that we can all learn something from failure. After all, no one managed to succeed in every chapter from the first time – all of us failed at one point at least. But it’s important to move on and prove that failure doesn’t define us, it’s just a step in the process of finding success. 

    1. “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” I wish I had heard that one, it would have been right in the middle of the post, it’s great. There’s something about learning through mistakes that almost hard wires it into you so that you never repeat. It is a natural progression, as children we learn through our nervous system before we use our ‘brain’. We touch something, it’s hot, it burns, we don’t touch it again.

      Be well.

  4. All of your information was very informative and hit the nail on the head. Most people today cannot handle failing and put way too much pressure on themselves to be absolutely perfect. A bunch of snowflakes as the youth of today call it. The problem is that parents don’t allow their children to fail a few times and learn from those failures. You have to learn how to pick yourself up and change how you are doing something. What do you think is the best way to teach your child this particular skill? By the way I also have 4 children and I try very hard to teach them that it is okay to fail as long as they tried because you have to at least try or you will never know if you can do it or not.

    1. Hi Kristena, you make some valid points and I have to say I don’t always agree with the way there seems to be a lack of ‘competition’ throughout the school system. There were always those who excelled and those who didn’t. I didn’t but also I admired the really good ones. I tried as hard as I could and as long as that was what I did I was always happy with any achievements I might get. Win lose or draw, if our children have tried their best, that’s good enough.

      Be well.

  5. Hi Twack, I must say that this article is very helpful and motivational. It is completely normal to fail but we humans can’t understand that. I know it by myself. Everything I do must be successful and if I fail it is the end of the world. Your tips motivated me to keep doing what I currently do. I have an online and offline business and sometimes it is really hard to keep with motivation. Thank you for sharing such great tips.

    1. Hi Daniel, firstly, you’re very welcome, sharing is my pleasure. You’re right, as humans we struggle with failure and are sometimes to hard on ourselves. That said, we are only human and failing is how we grow and how others can learn from our mistakes. Keep on heading towards your goals.

      Be well.

  6. Very interesting and inspiring article. Thank you for the examples you listed too, I just took some time to digest what these men went through and how they didn’t give up but continued to push forward until they achieved their dreams.
    I also tried to put myself in the shoes of a sales person who goes from door to door and gets turned down over and over again, and I wondered if I would have been able to endure all that if it were me.
    But truth be told, you were right to say we need to give room to failure in order to succeed, if not there may never be a way of trying, let alone failing or succeeding. 
    Fear of failure has always eaten deep into me, that even when I have great ideas to try out in my business, I just don’t, because I fear it would be a devastating failure.
    But now I am compelled to think “so what”! Try it, if you fail, then you try again, and who knows…

    It might turn out to be a great success..

    You’ve just inspired me big time..

    Thanks.

    1. Wow. It’s great to know that this post has given you some extra confidence to try something in the future. There’s plenty of motivational info out there on the WWW. There’s always something that can inspire us. I love reading about some of the ‘greats’ of our world and how it wasn’t always plain sailing. You’ve made my day. Thank you.

      Be well.
