There’s NO such thing as FAILURE!
Now, you’re probably thinking:
“What are you talking about there’s no failures Steve?”
There isn’t. Failure is an illusion. There’s no such thing. There is only feedback.
I’ll explain why.
When you’re doing anything in life, you are either going to get a good response or a bad response…
… a result you want or a result you don’t.
This applies in building a business, getting paid to do what you love, raising your family, being in a loving relationship with that special someone etc.
When something happens that you don’t like, or when something happens in a way that you didn’t expect, often people think they have FAILED and often beat themselves up about it:
Then they STOP trying. And of course, if you stop trying, you fail. Because the only true failure is when you stop.
What’s a more USEFUL way to relate to what most of us think is FAILURE?
DELETE the word FAILURE
INSERT the word FEEDBACK.
When you take any result (positive or negative) as feedback, you can LEARN from it rather than being STUCK with it. This is a big deal. We can ask ourselves the following questions in order:
Part of this process is accepting what is. Just saying, “Okay. That happened. I didn’t like it. It didn’t feel good. But it happened for whatever reason or not, and now we have to take that feedback.”
The feedback then teaches us what worked, what didn’t, so we can move on and focus on what we do want. Now you can move forward. Now you can get away from that negativity.
You’re just getting feedback and you’re doing it better and you’re doing it better and you’re doing it better and momentum occurs.
The MORE we LEARN, the FASTER we get at ACHIEVING our goals!
Let me give you an example.
Suppose you tried to grow your business to six-figures in the last year …
But you missed out but $5,000.
Going through the process, you can do this:
When you’re doing this, you’re creating momentum. You’re doing things and you’re doing things differently and better, instead of staying stagnant: “I failed.”
The secret to having MORE SUCCESS is actually MAKING MORE CHOICES
The more you choose the better you get at choosing.
It’s that simple!
