Do you embrace failure?

How do you handle failure?

Nobody likes failure.  We strive to be great and when we fall short, it can be a very difficult time.  Throughout my years in coaching and being a professional speaker, I have learned to embrace failure and accept it as a reality of life.  In order to persevere and get better, you must not let failure deter you, but make you stronger.  Here are some tips I have compiled I want to share with you on embracing failure.  Enjoy.

  • Ask questions. There are always others who have failed just like you.  I find that it’s very helpful to ask yourself “what did I do right?” and “what can I do differently next time?”  Keep the questions positive and productive.  What types of questions do you ask yourself?
  • Never give up mindset. In order to become successful and get to the top of your field, you will need to experience a few bumps in the road.  Your attitude will dictate how you bounce back.
  • Develop a positive attitude. You should always think that you’ll find a way to succeed.  Between your ears is where the magic happens.  How is your attitude?  Does it need a change?
  • Learn from other successful people. Greatness does not come easy.  If you read a biography or talk to someone else who has experienced the same type of failure, you will develop a new perspective for how you can embrace it.
  • Find a mentor. You can develop a mastermind group or reach out to individuals on your own.  Either way, having a mentor is invaluable.  Pick their brain and ask questions.
