According to a new study, failing at this when you are a young adult, can actually lead to greater success in it in the future.


Your job or career


The study found that people who failed in their jobs or careers early in life were more likely to be successful later. Some of the reasons could be that you tend to work even harder after failure; that you learned important information from the failure that helped you avoid it in the future and that you were more willing to take risks that lead to success after living through a failure. I was fired from my first professional radio job when I was 23 years old. I’m not sure if I am more successful now or if I have just continued on a path of failure but I think I’m doing OK! Have you ever been fired from a job?
