Hello SOTGC community,
I see so many women stuck in the past. They spend so much of their time wrapped up in events that they perceive as failures that they will not even try anything new.
They let fear of failure remind them of all the things that didn’t go right the last time. But what if they and everyone else looked at failure as a positive and not a negative?
It would change everything!
Here’s how to turn your failures into a goldmine.
“We are not what we know but what we are willing to learn.” ~ Mary Catherine Bateson
1. What are the lessons you learned? I know it can be painful when something doesn’t go as planned. The lessons you learned from past failures may actually be just the information you were looking for to fast-track you to success.
“An error doesn’t become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.” ~ Orlando A. Battista
2. Sometimes experiencing a complete failure is actually the wake-up call you need to stop repeating the same mistakes over and over. You’ve seen people who do the same thing again and again expecting a different result, but it just doesn’t work that way. So schedule in regular time to see what is not working for you, and then make the necessary changes to correct it.
“Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune; but great minds rise above them.” ~ Washington Irving
3. Failures can actually make you fearless…if you let them. Once you experience a failure, always remind yourself…“If I can make it through that, I can make through anything!”
Remember, failure means something different to everyone. What may seem like a failure to you…may seem like a win to someone else.
Don’t let failures end your dreams and goals. The important thing is to learn from them.
Here’s my definition of failure…
Found Achievements I Learned Under Required Experience
Don’t you love that!
Because without experiences to learn from, you can’t continue to grow as a person, entrepreneur, or in your career.
This week, take time to reflect and look for the gold, then congratulate yourself for having the courage to try something new…even if it didn’t turn out like you wanted. That in it self…is a huge accomplishment.
