5 benefits from failure

As founders of a music festival for emerging artists for the past 8 years, we have had the opportunity to achieve successes but also to make mistakes. For example, in the 3rd edition we had to find venues with bathrooms as this was not something done in the first 2 years. For many people, a mistake means failure, but in our experience, mistakes mean lessons! Although at first we feel like it's the end of the world, in hindsight we've come to see the benefits… Today we would like to share with you 5 benefits of failure!

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger

A famous expression that is not without truth!

Have you just received bad news? You have not been able to fulfill that dream that made your heart beat for so many years? Well, that doesn't stop your heart from beating!

Take time to process your emotions - it's okay to be sad. Focus on what you want inside. Look back at the journey you've taken and remember everything you've learned from it. These keys will always be valuable and useful to you!

New horizons open to you

Here's another expression that should help you put things into perspective: "It's not rejection, it's redirection".

Sometimes our destiny lies elsewhere than we think - and that's not a bad thing. The world is so big, so full of different and rich opportunities! Don't limit yourself to one path when there are many possible routes to your destiny.

Remember what you like to do in your life. Is it playing an instrument? Is it being able to write an entire album? Is it organising a concert? You can achieve this in many ways, not just one! So if one door doesn't open for you then we can assure you that many others will!

It keeps you grounded

Like a bird: you have to get your momentum before you can take off, and to do that you have to have your feet on the ground!

We've told you this before, but we'd like to repeat it: the world is big enough to explore several starting points.

The best way to start does not exist! Yes, there are certain paths to choose from, but when you think about it, why take the easy way out when you have so much more to learn to make you richer?

Humility makes you an authentic person

In today's society, we have so many models of success that we forget that we don't have to try to become the best to achieve our dreams.

After all, what does it mean to be the best?

Stay humble, remember that your goal is to achieve your dreams, not necessarily to conquer the world. We know you have a lot of energy and positivity to offer the world! We encourage you to succeed but never forget where you come from.

There are more lessons to be learned from failure than from success

We are not teaching you anything: nobody is perfect. What makes you successful are all the lessons you have in mind and that you manage to apply!

Learning is never a bad thing, so why should failing be?

Learn from your mistakes! Ask yourself what went wrong and why? When you have the answer you can go back to conquering your dreams: stronger and richer than ever!

Here are 5 benefits we have learned from our past failures. Our role is to support you and we hope that this article has succeeded in making you aware of your values and your ability to achieve your dreams. We believe in you!
