All failures, especially previously failed relationships, have unique lessons to offer. In this article, we’re redefining failure so that it can be a stepping stone for greater things in your love life!
Success can be a great teacher, especially when you’re trying something new for the first time, and it works! Success teaches you how to do something in the future that will result in a positive outcome.
But failure offers something that you don’t get from success. Something far more valuable if you know how to look at things the right way.
Because if you don’t make USE of failures and learn from them…
You’ll keep getting the same, undesirable results. But if you learn something new every time you fail, your growth will be exponential!
Today, we’re going to look closely at relationship failures.
Maybe it’s a relationship in the past that didn’t go as you would’ve hoped. Leaving you feeling betrayed, hurt and nervous to get back out there again. Or perhaps it’s with a current partner who has let you down, and you’re struggling to move on from it.

Either way, we’re going to redefine relationship failures, so you can progress, learn and grow from them.
And by the end of this article, you might even find yourself thinking that a particular relationship failure was the best thing that ever happened!
Let’s dive in…
- “Every adversity, every failure, every heartbreak, carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” – Napoleon Hill
This is a brilliant quote from Napoleon Hill. It teaches us that there’s actually a seed of benefit in every failure, no matter how big it may seem. In fact, sometimes the benefit is even greater than the failure itself. If you can hold failure in a positive light, you can claim the good from it.
Not many people can live life looking for the good in every situation, but mastering this can have a tremendous impact on your love life, allowing you to grow and learn.
For example, you might discover the seed of benefit by asking yourself: “How has this failed relationship helped me for the future? What have I discovered that I can avoid next time?”
When you look at failure this way, you don’t just learn how to move forward, you learn about yourself! And that fortifies your character and prepares you for even greater success than you originally aimed.
- Turn failure into expectation
What if we re-framed failure so that it didn’t define you? Instead of having this dark cloud of failure looming overhead, what if it was something you could actually get excited about?
Sounds crazy right? But let’s look at an example where a woman is newly single… Yes the breakup can be painful and she might feel low and disappointed. But she can also expect those feelings to pass. She can expect to enjoy the fun freedom of being single again. And she can even expect an even greater man to come into her life.
When you create these expectations, knowing there’s something greater in store for you, you can start to see current circumstances as stepping stones to the next phase of your life.
- Failure without fear
If you weren’t afraid to fail, what would you go after?
When you can learn from previous failures, and accept that failure is a part of life, it becomes less scary. You start to feel more confident, knowing that even if you do fail, it will be a stepping stone to something greater. You learn from it and progress.
Failure without fear is an extremely freeing experience that allows you to dive head first into whatever new experience you’re faced with. Whether that’s a new relationship you were hesitant to commit to for fear of getting hurt… Or whether it’s a career choice you’re scared of making.
When you aren’t afraid to fail, you seek more opportunities that make life more exciting and make your growth more rapid and sensational.
