I have learned the secret to failing forward by creating a “YES” mindset.
How do you feel about failure? Is it an event or has it become an identity?
I am very proud of my failures! My combined failures prove that I have followed my passions, thought outside the box, attempted greatness and forged my own path. I decided to make each of my failed attempts mean that I am tenacious, persistent, stout hearted, and most importantly willing to fail.
I have an impressive collection of business cards to prove it. Even though I enthusiastically approached each business attempt with an attitude of, “What the hell, this might work,” the lessons I earned was worth every heart ache when it didn’t work.
Failure is simply of mental constraint
One person’s failure is another person’s success. A student given the grade of C could consider the grade a failure or a complete victory, depending on the student. Yearly earnings of $100,000 is a failure to one small business owner, and a unimaginable success to another small business owner.
Many of my clients have unfortunately allowed well meaning family members or friends to define failure for them, which inevitably robs them of a “YES mentality. I have heard stories of women spending nearly 50 years believing what was said about them in the past. These women are finally liberated when they drop the old story for one they create.
You get to decide what failure means.
A “YES” mindset
“I no longer remember what the question is. I do know the answer is yes.” Seth Godin
If you refuse to accept failure as a part of the journey, you will not likely succeed.
Once you learn to anticipate obstacles, you will face disappointing outcomes prepared and will have the awareness to look for the lessons. You’ll no longer be afraid of failure, but will say, “Bring it on!”
You will have the fortitude to fail forward with a “YES” mindset.
