    I always tell my daughters that failure is a necessity to understanding and respecting the value of your own success and the success of others.

    This reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from Les Brown: “Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss, but because they aim too low and hit” Edit: Thank you for the Gold!

    I'm 30, in the middle of a career change and was just rejected by a nursing program I thought I'd be a shoo-in for. Needed this encouragement, thanks. Edit: responses have ranged from hilarious to kind and generous. You've made a sad gal into a grateful, happy one.

    I actually believe that failure is a requirement of success.

    Finally something actually motivated instead of an analogy comparing me to a fruit or something.

    Just wanted to point out that harrison ford originally tried to work as an actor, "failed" at that (couldn't make enough money to feed his family because he only got smaller roles). Then worked as a carpenter, very successfully and made enough money to feed his family and turn down smaller roles. Did this until he managed to get into bigger roles and the rest is history. Because if you don't know that it reads like "he worked as carpenter and randomly got into acting". He worked hard to get where he is now.

    Stan Lee didn’t make his first comic until he was 39, Samuel L. Jackson didn’t become a household name until he was 43, Julia Child put out her first cookbook when she was 50. It’s not a race, you just have to try.

    Vera Wang worked at Vogue as an editor for almost 20 years, so it's not fair to compare.

    I don't call it failure or success anymore. I call it experimenting. Doesn't go the way you want? Well your hypothesis turned out to be wrong. Time to learn from it. I like this because it means I don't psychologically bet it all. It means I don't treat it like the championship final, but actually just another day. It also means I keep resources to experiment again in the future. Yes - the story of the FedEx guy who put it all on black at Vegas is ballsy as hell, and a great story, but it was a _terrible_ idea. (However I guess he had nothing to lose so maybe not so.) My writing gets negative feedback? Well that new idea I was experimenting with wasn't a good idea. I can write another thing. That girl blew me off? Well it's all an experiment to find out which girl is right for me. I can talk to another girl. In life you need to get feedback. Seeing it as success or failure is your choice. Seeing it as experiments and proving or disproving a hypothesis is also your choice. I'd rather end life having done hundreds of experiments which disproved my hypotheses, than to live in hope of one day my destined success will happen. Destiny is for losers. Winners experiment.

    I'm turning 40. Up until now I've told myself Stan Lee did not create Spiderman till 40. Is there a good example of someone who didn't succeed till 45/50 to use now instead as I reach this milestone?

    I've failed a lot of times and every time I learn something new and get myselg just a little bit more together. Can't succeed without failing. It really hits people hard if they fail at something when their entire life they've been sheltered and had it easy. I wouldn't be who I am today if I hadn't have failed so much.

    I found my current career, which I love and it's practically my calling, because I was desperate and getting close to being fired at my last job. Couldn't keep up with their demands. Now I have a path for my life and love going to work.

    As someone who is older, this is highly motivating and nice to see. I feel as though whenever I listen to a Ted Talk or a motivational speech it's always directed to teens and young adults. As if once your older, your done, that's it, all hope is lost. It's refreshing to see things like this. It gives me hope. Thank you for sharing this OP!

    Everyone says Harrison Ford was a carpenter. As far as I know he wanted to be an actor and had been auditioning for quite some time. But as an actor out of work you’ve got bills to pay so of course you’re going to pick up a full time job to survive. It really annoys me when people say “omg this actor was bussing tables before they made it big, look at what they achieved!” Do you all live under a rock? Like 95% of people trying to break into Hollywood are Uber/Lyft drovers or world in the restaurant business as waiters/waitresses mostly due to the flexibility those jobs offer.

    While failure may be a requisite part of eventual success, not every failure is indicative of a person who will eventually be successful. Some people just fail and fail repeatedly and that is much more common than these success stories. This is the kind of motivational speech like “Bill Gates dropped out of college and became successful; so can you.” Bill Gates did drop out of college, but his dropping-our story is not the norm. Normally, people who drop out of college are less successful than those who graduate college.

    I really needed to see this... I just changed my major, junior year of college. Now I’m going to be graduating at 25 if everything goes to plan. I was so self conscious but now I realize I don’t need to be. Everyone is at their own place in life, and I just needed a bit more time to find mine.
