Shift Failure into Something Positive
There are two types of people who can fail
There are two types of people who can fail. There are two types of people who can handle failure well: those who do it well and those who don’t. Many of us fall in the latter category. Failure is a pain. It hurts to work on something that doesn't work the way you want. You can feel like a failure if you push yourself too hard and come up with unfavorable results. This can make you feel like a failure and push you into a corner.
Failure is not something that people see as a way to success. It is. It's crucial to turn failure into something good. Why? Fear will set in if you don’t. It's difficult to get back up after that. Fear of rejection or failure can make it difficult to face your fears. The one thing that I didn't expect to happen when I started my business was the possibility of failure. Is that possible? It is crazy to think about what your life would look like. I have failed many times. It took me many attempts to get it right. I learned new skills and was miserable at them.
Along the way, something happened. I sucked less. I got better. It encouraged me to improve and it helped me become a better person. This blog post will make a big difference in your life. Because it will show you how to turn failure into something good. This is not an easy task. It's not easy, but it is possible. People will tell you that you won't be successful if your don't do something. You can change your outlook and see the world differently, I promise.
Keep following me. Failure is the beginning. It is not the end. You can turn failure into something good. This is the first step. You can always learn from your mistakes and get back up. Keep moving forward and improving your skills. Everyone who is successful has had to fail at the beginning. Star tups that didn't gain traction. No views on YouTube videos or blog posts. The marathon you didn't win. The promotion that you didn't receive.
Learn from the mistakes you make along the way. People give up when they can't get what they want. It is the end of the road for them. X didn’t happen so I’m not good enough. There are seven billion of them. The internet is home to more than half of them. There are millions of podcasts, YouTube channels, and blogs. There is fierce competition.
This is not to discourage you but to motivate you. Did you know that every day, a podcast, YouTube channel, and blog are created? Yes. Every day. Did you know that the majority of people quit within three months? This is the bottom line. Keep going and you will find the momentum to make it. If you don't have the willpower to keep going, you'll quit.
Each successful person has a story about triumphing over failures. This makes them human. It resonates with all of us. Our thoughts are connected. Our thoughts connect. Many of them will tell you that they have struggled, so they know you can do it. This is why we look up to them. We also feel closer to them.
Failure is a lesson in how to get up from your mistakes. You can get through any storm once it passes. Change failure into something good. Name someone you admire who has failed. Failure turned into success is what defines success. You can help someone else overcome their failures once you have overcome them. You can find books, courses and blog posts on Amazon. Many of these books and podcasts explain how to beat x or overcome y. They talk about Z. Many of them want to help you overcome something in life. Our failure teaches us invaluable lessons.
Some things are beyond our control. For example, the weather. That's okay. It's something we are prepared to do. But what about all the other stuff? What people think of you is beyond your control. It is impossible to control your failures or avoid making mistakes. We were not born with a blueprint on how to overcome the odds. The saying goes that practice makes perfect. It's true. A beginner piano player doesn't become a virtuoso overnight. An entrepreneur who starts a company isn't a millionaire overnight won't be a millionaire within a month.
It's not your fault if you make mistakes. It is not your fault that you make mistakes or when they occur. Don't believe you can control. It's hard. It's all part of the learning process. You learn and you grow. You develop. You will see yourself differently and your life in a new way. Change failures into something positive. It will be difficult at first, but it will change over time. Everything changes. It's not the same.
Take control of what is within your reach. How much dedication you show. How much time you invest in your skills. How productive you are. How much you spend. Your mindset. It is easier to focus on the things you can control and it will take away the pressure.
This is one of the best ways to turn failure into something good. This is how you learn to never lose heart. It is a strength to fail and learn from it. People who are successful don't have to be stronger than everyone else. They are the ones who achieve it. They learn from failure how to succeed. It's not easy. It is hard to fail, but not to give up. It is heart. That's the joy in failure. You will succeed, no matter how many times it fails.
In 2017, I published a book. I failed. It failed to gain any traction. My goal to become a New York Times Bestseller was thwarted. But I survived. It was hard. It was. It hurt. Yes. It hurt less each day until it was no longer a noticeable blip on the radar. It no longer felt like this huge thing. Here's the truth: I failed because of the things that I was unable to accomplish. It's okay, that's what I am telling you. Keep moving. Keep going.
Don't look back. Don't look back with regret. Instead, smile with a big smile. Failure didn't destroy you. You survived. You survived. You did not curl up into a ball, as the movies show. No. You are a survivor. If you survived, it's not as bad as it seems. It's worth putting yourself out there. Is hard. It is true. But it doesn't have be. It doesn't need to be scary or brutal. You can do it, just remember that you have this. I learned from failure that failure doesn't hold you back unless it allows it to. Don't dwell on the failures you have made. Even if you learn from your mistakes, you'll still make them. You will continue to make mistakes. This doesn't end. Because we are flawed, human error is possible. Even with all the edits that books have gone through, many will still make mistakes. The majority of books will have at least five editors. After that, they will have a proofreader. They will still make mistakes. Movies are no different. There is no perfect film. They are films that are almost perfect, but they are great movies.
You're not alone. Change failure into something good. Don't expect perfection. Instead, strive for excellence.
