Whenever we heard the word “Failure”, it brings a - negative sense to our brain. The reality is that it’s the foundation that helps us to rise and shine in our life. “Failure” is not a new experience to us, but it is more impactful if we can learn from it and use that knowledge to plan our next step wisely. Our society taught us to attach connotations to words. We have been programmed that success is positive and failures are negative. Although, experiences can not be black and white. It is actually a color palette and a full rainbow. We need to learn that how we can learn from each color and enjoy them, to live it fully.
Like Vivian Greene said, “Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.” We all go through many such storms in life and always try to move forward with the learnings associated with them. No one wants these struggles all the time. We all wish for “a magic wand” that can just avoid or vanish all the problems in life. But in reality, it is not possible. The beauty of life lies in the struggles and failures. Because it helps us to grow more and better.
It’s a long journey and not so easy to find all pearls of wisdom in one place. But now your struggles end with a new social blogging platform called “FailWise”. Started by a microbiologist Vijay Soni, Ph.D. “FailWise” (A New Delhi-based venture of Scipreneur Pvt. Ltd.) is a platform for collaborative learning where you can share your experiences and lessons from failures and learn from others. “FailWise” welcomes emotions, experiences, and journeys that people often don’t share.
“Join us as we celebrate mistakes and endeavor to learn from them. We welcome stories and journeys unheard and unsung. We want to hear and learn from your struggles and challenges. You can share your short ideas/ stories in the form of articles, videos, or image quotes. Alternatively, you can contact us, and we will draft or record your story on your behalf.” – says Founder Vijay Soni, Ph.D.
How FailWise started?
Brandon Mull represents a philosophy of FailWise, “Smart people learn from their mistakes. But the real sharp ones learn from the mistakes of others.”
Founder Vijay Soni is a researcher he says “as a researcher, we face many failures every day, that we wished we knew them before”. FailWise is trying to bring out countless learnings, experiences, opinions, and stories that matter to all of us. FailWise is actively raising voice against many social issues like dowry, gender biasedness, women's rights and education, child labor, and pseudo-social dogmas.
Like Elon Musk says, “Failures are a sign that you are inventing”. We learn best when we are inquisitive. Inquisitiveness brings adventures and results in great experiences. On the way to our “inquisitive” journey, we may sometimes thrive and sometimes flop. Most of our knowledge comes out of inquisitiveness accompanied by many new lessons and wisdom. Sometimes we call it achievement or sometimes “Failures”.
“Success is overrated, and failures are neglected”, therefore we thought of starting a platform where you can share the wisdom from your failures and everyone can learn from them. – says Founder Vijay Soni, Ph.D.
How can you join FailWise and publish?
It's very simple. You can simply create your account on https://failwise.co/ and after confirming your account from your email, you can start sharing your articles, stories, opinion, or anything else that you want to share. Your submission will be reviewed, edited, and published within 24hrs. FailWise is also encouraging motivational and life-changing real stories that can help someone and tell ‘What Not to Do?’ You can also share your business or startup stories and share the value with the world. There is no limit to learning in any area of life or profession, therefore we also welcome article/stories almost from all possible areas and niches. articles
And yes, there is no cost for this, it is free. Interestingly, you could remain “anonymous” if you wanted to be. Your privacy will be protected.
FailWise is also organizing “TUF Talks” (Tell You Fail) where selected authors, stories, and people will be invited to talk on stage or online. As Heath says, “The quickest road to success is to possess an attitude toward failure of ‘no fear’. FailWise will aspire to spread that attitude so that you will never look at “failure” as a bad end, but a beautiful starting.
We believe in Samuel Beckett’s words “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail Better.” …and we add to this “Fail Wisely”.
