Turn Failures into Opportunities

Failure or Learning: You Get to Choose how you see it
Failure is the only way to grow because without failure you can´t really learn how to succeed in anything.
Vision + Massive Action = Goals
Failure is designed to get us further along the road toward success. Without a clear vision and massive action, many of us will wander through our days and only accomplish a fraction of the things we’re truly capable of.
Mistakes are part of life, and most certainly part of any business. We don't often acknowledge it, but failure is also a fundamental element of our success. Avoiding your Failure can lead to anxiety. So you can’t ignore your setbacks all together, and it’s important to acknowledge them sooner rather than later and see where there is room for growth. Instead of reprimanding yourself and getting stuck in a cycle of self-shame, ask yourself this question: What can you do to take what you need from the setback, shift your mindset to a more positive one, and get back to where you were! Mistakes happen to everybody. What really matters is what you do with those mistakes, and what you learn from them. Be grateful for the setbacks as you are getting a new experience and a opportunity to grow. Use them as a tool to shift your momentum in a new direction.
The sooner we stop shaming our failures, the easier it will be to transform them to our advantage. Here are some points to think about:
- Mistakes are not a problem, but not taking the chance to learn from them is.
Identify your mistakes and learn from them quickly. Many successful people have experienced some kind of failure--and they grow on those lessons. Learning to fail well means learning to understand your mistakes. Anything from a mistake at work, a date gone wrong, or fumbling through a yoga class can be a situation where you can turn a negative into a positive learning experience..In every mistake there is a potential for growth.
- Be careful how you talk to yourself
Self-talk can be extreemly damaging, especially after a failure. Handle your self-talk and don't allow it to make you feel worthless--especially in the aftermath of a failure. Let it sting for a moment, and then remember all the accomplishments you had so far, stay positive and get back on your success track. My Book Transwording is the ultimate tool for it.
- Massive action creates consistent results.
Power doesn't come from what you can do, it comes from mastering the things you once believed you couldn't do. So let yourself fall down, but learn to get up and move fast forward. What you do every day matters more than what you do every once in a while. Repetition is key to success.
Failures or mistakes come with opportunities.
Ultimately, we’re all going to make mistakes and have setbacks. If we didn’t, nothing would get accomplished! You aren’t broken for being imperfect, and you should be proud of taking a risk in the first place becausse not many people do. Continue to focus on your highest vision, and continue to take chances. Continue to grow, always. Your next big mistake could lead to your next big win, so put yourself out there with your head held high. The world needs you to.
