5 Lessons To Learn From Failure As An Entrepreneur
Small Enterprise|November 2020
There are multiple variables in business that we need to learn to roll with punches and we find those variables double in size and frequency as entrepreneurs.

Failing is inevitable in life and everyone fails at something or the other. Steve Jobs was rejected by many companies, Einstein was an awful student. Other famous personalities like Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, and even Oprah failed at something. Failure is, however, not the end of the world. The way you handle a situation determines who you are as a person and an entrepreneur.

Below are some lessons that novice entrepreneurs can learn from failures:

Cannot Experience Joy of Walking without Falling

These words cannot be truer. It is a story that they made up if they tell you that all they faced was a success and not a single failure. Failure is everywhere, whether in our personal lives, professional lives, and even grade school. Failure opens a whole new path for betterment and improvement of our lives and new experiences can be learned from it.

No matter how uncomfortable, frustrating, terrifying it may be, never close yourself to opportunities. Only when you step out of your comfort zone and pick yourselves up when you have hit rock bottom do we learn. There may be 999 victories in your life but all of them would’ve taught you nothing compared to what that 1 loss taught you. The biggest and most valuable lessons of life come through failure.
