Overcoming Failure

So you failed, and you feel like shit, now what? Follow these 10 steps below. 

iwontlose.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/failure-300×199.jpg” alt=”Failure” width=”344″ height=”228″ />

In life, some things are simply inevitable, and we, therefore, plan for them accordingly. However, there is something that is almost guaranteed to happen yet we fail to plan – failure. Whether it is professionally or personally, failure is just a fact of life, so we have some fantastic tips to guide you through the process and come out the other side bigger and better than ever before.

 

Step 1: Feel – If you have failed, the first step is to allow yourself to feel what is happening. If you are sad and disappointed, that’s fine! Feel these emotions but do not hold onto these feelings. It will only make you feel worse! Therefore, you should notice any emotion and process your feelings before moving forward.

 

Step 2: Accept – Next, you have to accept whatever it was that happened. If you continue blaming yourself or others, you are holding on when you really should be letting go. If necessary, grab some paper and write down what happened using only facts without blame. Once you do this, you can start to accept that it is in the past and nothing you can do will change that fact.

 

Step 3: Positive Reframing – Even within failure, there are positives to be found so spend some time assessing what the positives might be. Instead of saying ‘I have failed at finishing this task,’ say something like ‘I have spent a little longer on this task than expected.’ Of course, you should never underplay mistakes, but you need to look for the best in every situation.

 

Step 4: Recognize Negative Thoughts – Whether it is name-calling or beating yourself up, you need to identify when negative thoughts occur to then question them. Suddenly, you can start to dispute the negative claims and overhaul your mindset.

 

Step 5: Stop Replaying – As mentioned earlier, there is no way of going back and changing the past so stop thinking about what happened. When you always replay situations, this is called ‘rumination, ’ and it prevents us from moving forward.

 

Step 6: Find the Cause – Once you complete the above, you can start to bounce back, and this begins with identifying the cause. If it could have been prevented, think about what you will do differently next time. As long as you grow from it, failure can actually be incredibly useful.

 

Step 7: Set Goals – What do you want to happen next? If you lost your job, how are you going to proceed from here? As long as you make these goals achievable, there is no reason why you can’t use the opportunity of losing your job to move into your dream career path finally. If possible, talk with others to create viable goals.

 

Step 8: Mental Contrasting – When envisioning all the success that will come, we often get blindsided which is why mental contrasting is important. Instead of just focusing on the perfect life, you also need to envision potential obstacles because then you can plan and appreciate how difficult the journey may be.

 

Step 9: Assess Your Approach – Now you have made mistakes, you know what you need to avoid the next time. Thomas Edison, creator, and inventor of the lightbulb, once said ‘I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work’. If you can adopt this mindset, you won’t go far wrong.

 

Step 10: Keep Going – With a new goal and plan in place, you can try again and move towards your goal. Ultimately, life is a learning process because no person is born knowing everything. If you want to be the best, you have to learn at every opportunity!

The Importance of Negative Life Lessons

Let’s start this with a question – when you look at the people at the top of your desired field, do you think that they have ever been through negative experiences? All things considered, this could be a failure, mistakes, and just negative issues that affected their development. Of course, the answer to this is ‘yes’ because everyone has hard times. However, it is how we react and respond to these that will allow us to progress in life.

 

When we look for ways to grow as a person, we normally look for success and good decisions. However, as counter-intuitive as it sounds, there is something to be said for learning the negative life lessons. When we were children, our parents would tell us not to play in the street while we learned other things to avoid ourselves. Despite this, we seem to lose this as we grow older until we only focus on what we should be doing. Why is this the case?

 

Whether it is for our personal lives or in regards to our career, learning what we shouldn’t do is vital. Therefore, the negative life lessons provide us with opportunities in which we get to know ourselves and how to progress. In business, you have to learn not to treat employees poorly. Otherwise, they lose motivation and productivity decreases. In a relationship, yo have to learn not to cut your partner from important decisions otherwise they feel as though their opinion isn’t important. Too often, people see negative experiences as a sign that they should stop, turn around, and run in the opposite direction. Instead, they should be used as opportunities to grow and develop as a person.

In truth, we could take this a step further. Not only is it important to learn from our mistakes, but it is also valuable to learn from the mistakes of others. If you sit and watch as a friend or colleague fails in some way, you would be foolish to go out there and attempt the same thing. Regardless of the source, the people around you will provide you with opportunities to learn, so you need to snap them up whenever they arise.

 

So far, we have used the term ‘negative life lessons, ’ and this is because they result from negative experiences. However, a good mindset to adopt would be one that sees all life lessons as positive. When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, the world would be changed forever, but not many people know that he actually failed many times before. In fact, he failed in his creation around 10,000 times. When questioned on this ‘failure,’ he noted that he didn’t fail 10,000 times, he simply found 10,000 ways in which the light bulb would not work. When you think about it, this is a beautiful statement, and it sums up the point we have been discussing today.

 

As soon as you learn to see all lessons as positive, the faster you will make progress towards your goals. Always seeing success can be great but what if you could consistently see success while knowing exactly how to avoid failure? If you put a lot of effort into something only for it to fail tremendously, take a step back and realize how good this can be. Of course, you are entitled to a few seconds of being disappointed, but then you can focus on how not to make the same mistakes in the future!

HAVE YOU MEASURED YOUR WEALTH?

How do you measure true wealth?

 

In life, we tend to measure wealth by physical items such as possessions and money; in truth, these are a good way to see how financially secure one may be. Within this, we also look towards how good of a life someone is enjoying, how well they garner support and influence opinion, and even whether they attract friends to widen their social circle. However, is material wealth really the best indicator of real wealth?

 

In short, the answer would be ‘no’ because material wealth doesn’t cover the wealth that is earned such as goodwill, respect, reputation, and recognition. Furthermore, it completely ignores personal values and the emotional side of a human being. Let’s take a deeper look at these;

 

Respect and Recognition – In essence, this often comes with age and how people grow both as a person and in their professional capacity. Also, it can show how people contribute and influence within their personal and vocational lives.

Reputation and Goodwill – Over the years, reputation and goodwill are both earned steadily by being someone who is trustworthy, reliable, and balanced. Often, it will come in achievements and how society perceives those, but it also comes with simplicity and humility.

 

Emotional Balance and Empathy – Ultimately, this can be a little harder to notice because people will often be very different in public than they would in private. Despite this, there are key scenarios that give people away from such as when they look for support or when others are at their mercy. Also, it can be seen when dealing with those who differ in opinion.

 

Fair Play and Justice – With this, it mainly comes from the principles that one adheres to, and this can develop from an upbringing, courage/conviction, and personal values. Often, those who are willing to hold the minority point of view is considered the strongest of all.

 

In these four sections, you can see that a lot of ‘worth’ comes from what other people think of you and this is important because it suggests the legacy that you will leave behind. Before finishing, we have a couple of simple exercises to try today;

 

#1 – Right now, grab a piece of paper and write down five things that you believe people value in you. Then, write a couple of criticisms and what you can do to improve these things.

 

#2 – Are there any social problems that tend to annoy you? If so, are you going to do something about it if something can be done at all?

 

#3 – Finally, try and test yourself on some of the classic scenario-based questions to gauge your responses. For example, would you point out that a teacher has given you extra marks if it means that you fail an exam? Would you hand in a missing wallet? After lying about not having someone’s possession but actually losing it, would you have the courage to hand it back after finding it?

 

As there is more to life than material wealth, it can be important to take the time to assess all sides of wealth and how you can become a better person all-around.

Self Growth

Accelerating Your Self-Growth

<a href=Life is strange; it is amazing that we even exist, but it can also be the hardest thing we do. As we start to build success and money in our career, it is surprising how often we forget about ourselves. As we grow, we have this fantastic opportunity to discover ourselves and progress, but we don’t utilize it. For this reason, we have compiled a short list of superb tips to accelerate self-growth.

 

Stubbornness is Fine – When we hear the word ‘stubborn,’ we instantly think of it as a negative word, but this doesn’t have to be the case. When it comes to your dreams and aspirations, it is perfectly fine to be stubborn and stand up for yourself. Develop an obsessed mindset, and you will achieve a lot and accelerate self-growth.

 

Tomorrow is a Gift – Just like today, tomorrow is never promised, so you need to make the most of each day as it comes. As they say, ‘treat each day as your last,’ and you will make more progress than ever before.

 

Have Niche Qualities – Sometimes, we push ourselves too far in our journey to be great at everything when this is something that is nearly impossible. When we even attempt it, we are pulling our focus in too many different directions, and we end up failing at nearly everything. Instead, just pick a few of your most passionate goals and aim at working on them consistently. As long as it contributes to health, love, wealth, and happiness, it is well worth your effort.

 

Watch Others – Remember, there have been people that have followed the exact same path as you before. As soon as you realize that the people who have already completed the journey have left information behind, you will have advice for every step of the way. If possible, contact leaders in your field and ask them for help because they have been where you are, and they know the challenges you face.

 

Knowledge and Action – If you are to progress, you need to find the right balance between knowledge and action. According to a recent report, there are 130 billion books in existence which presents a lot of knowledge. Sometimes, you just need to take action because this is something that is lacking in the world.

 

Habits are Key – When we start new habits, many people give up because they don’t believe that they will have the willpower to force it forever. However, this isn’t necessary because it is believed that only 66 days of willpower are required until something becomes a habit.

 

Time is Valuable – Finally, you should never take advantage of time because we can never get it back. Instead of complaining, worrying, and regretting always maintains a positive attitude and never let something bother you now that you won’t remember a year down the line.

 

If you are experiencing success in your career but leaving your personal life behind, these are some great steps to take. Let’s make the most of every day and appreciate the sanctity of life!
