Successful People Embrace And Learn From Failure
Arianna Huffington says, “We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes. Understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.”
Appreciating the rewards of failure is something that sets achievers apart from people who allow fear and self-doubt to stagnate their growth. If you’re feeling stuck, resentful or bored, examine your mind and heart. Uncover the places where fear of making a mistake is playing the leading role in your inner dialogue. Look at it this way: your fear of what may happen is far more disastrous than anything that will likely occur. If you try and results fall short of your expectations, you’ll survive. If you make a mess, just clean it up and begin again.
Fear of failure is your inner border patrol at work. It’s trying to convince you that the path you must travel to get through what scares you will do permanent damage. It will be painful and fruitless. The real truth is that not pushing through your fear causes more damage than staying in your safe zone. That’s because fear of failure builds upon itself when there are no victories to knock it down to size.
Your good goals and dreams are awaiting your attention. Make a plan and make your move. Celebrate every step you take. And, if you find that things are not working out exactly as you imagined, modify and continue. Take comfort in knowing that few accomplishments are achieved by traveling a straight line. If you are to succeed in spite of circumstances, you’ll accept that assessing and adjusting are an inevitable part of the journey.
