As you read this article you are going to learn about Socrates amazing philosophy of marriage and how you can use it to conquer your fear of failure and achieve higher levels of success.
Who on earth doesn’t fail?
We all fail. The most important thing is knowing how to face and handle failure, and how to use it as a stepping stone to reach your goals and dreams.
If you succeed, that is a good thing. But the best lessons you learn in life come from your failures.
Socrates used a similar philosophy in regard to marriage. He said, If a man has a good marriage, that is a good thing. If he has a bad marriage, he becomes a philosopher, and that is a good thing.
That is a truly amazing philosophy. It teaches you how to handle success and failure.
When you succeed, it is good―congratulations. You need to spend some time analyzing your success to understand the key lessons of that success, so that you can repeat them again and again to achieve future successes.
And when you fail, you need to spend almost three times as much time as you do when you succeed, analyzing your failure to understand the key lessons of that failure. Those lessons will really shape your character and make you a true philosopher and a wise man.
The best lessons you can learn in your life come from your failures. So accept failures in your life and be grateful for them. And keep your eye on the pearls of wisdom that you gain from your failures.
Fact is, successful people are the ones who fail the most. If you dont fail, then you arent growing. If you dont fail, then you arent doing something worthy.
Don’t let your successes and failures pass without analyzing them for the lessons they offer―then learn from those lessons and take them with you to the next level.
Be a good analyst of your achievements and failures. This will make you a philosopher. You will soon become a person who is a good student of life. You will understand how life works and how you can succeed in whatever endeavor you choose.
The lessons you learn from your own life experiences are much more powerful than those you read in a book or hear in a speech.
So from now on, be an analyst. Don’t let important life events pass without learning the lessons that you should learn to grow and expand.
Thanks to Socrates, we can learn about success even when he talks about marriage.
You, too, can become a great philosopher simply by becoming the analyst of your own life.
Face your fears and make it big!
