    People fail for a number of reasons, but we shouldn't give up and we should only treat failure as a learning curve. Failure should make us smarter so we know how to do better next time.

    Well, Failure is really a part of everybody's life...
    As the saying goes, "Nobody's Perfect".
    We just need to be positive in every challenges we have and learn from this mistakes/failures.

    Failure is a good teacher aside from experience. So we have to learn how to stand up ;)

    Lance Armstrong wrote that the characteristic all successful people shared, was the ability to focus. Without focus, it is difficult to achieve anything of significance. When you are not focused on achieving your goal, someone else is and they are more likely to get there before you.

    we fall for us to enjoy life more. Because without failure life is not complete. If life is perfect and there is no failure there is no challenge to move forward.

    thanks for the idea guys...it's a reminder for me. I did fall high from expecting too much from my business. I lost hope of getting up, but eventually I realized a long the way that goals are there to motivate me not bring me down If I don't reach them. To have a successful business is to understand the process of being down and up. yes you are right nazreen when you said something about being open-minded. having an open mind widens the horion of our views with regard to failing, thus giving us more options to succeed.

    Failure is a teacher if we have the right attitude in dealing with it. Failing is not always the dead end, sometimes it is a detour that lead us to have a better understanding of what really lies ahead.

    I think that People make big dreams, and rightly so. The show-off isn't less lucrative. They make big and unrealistic dreams and due to lack of experience or anything else, if they are not able to achieve them, their hopes crash out. Their self-confidence is broken and they stop trying.

    Why do we fail? we fail so that we can succeed later by learning from it.

    I will be honest here, I do not understand "UNREALISTIC GOALS". How can goals be unrealistic??

    One of our other members talks about how goals are not unrealistic but how they can have unrealistic time scales. For example if I set a goal that Business Advice Forum would be bigger than Google this time next month, that would be unrealistic.

    Hello Everyone,

    The main reason why we fail is less knowledge. If we don't have full knowledge regarding a particular thing we cannot execute a perfect plan.
    Before getting into something we must acquire enough knowledge regarding that particular thing so that we can think of different strategies. As if we have different plans, one can not fail because if one strategy fails you can move to another. So, in a nutshell, I
    would say just gather information before doing something.


    Thanks

    There is only two reason – lack of knowledge and Lack of patience. In the era of technology every people should aware about technology, market and latest updates in their field otherwise competitors will beat you and you will be fail.

    Only if that technology is applicable. A wheelie bin cleaner probably doesn’t need the latest anything.

    Hi! I honestly think that the reason we fail is that a tiny part of us already gave up. I mean, plans fail, but there is always another way. We should learn to be open to trying another path to reach the summit. We fail because we admit defeat.;)
