What is really understood about the power of having the right perspective? How many people are afraid of failure? I write quite often about combating the blockers that stop people moving on in life and in business. Being afraid of failure will hold you back. Learn to take risks by having the right perspective especially if building a business with ideas working from home.
Let’s be honest, you’re not living if you do not fail. Taking risks can be exciting. We are not born to be great and successful at everything. We learn through application and experimenting and this is regardless of training and education. The secret to success is not to quit – despite this being a short four letter word that is easy to say and do. Maybe it should have been a much longer word?
History shows that failure can be the path to success. At school, Napoleon was rated 42 out of a class of 43, yet he built an army to conquer many parts of Europe. George Washington lost 2/3rds of his military battles, yet against overwhelming odds won the revolutionary war and changed American history. Albert Einstein, a slow learner, was advised to change his studies from physics to something else. Yet he is considered the father of the atomic age.
The list goes on. We shouldn’t dwell on people’s failures, the journey to their success, but take the right perspective and look at their contributions to the world.
Only when you consider your failure really is final that you become a failure. Failure is not an event, it’s an opinion.
‘A righteous man may fall 7 times and rise again’
The fear of failing! Is this you? Are you in this space? The fear of failing could prove fatal in achieving your gaols by preventing you from trying again and again.
Baseball players normally hit the ball 3 out of 10 times. How do these guys go out and play with such a high failure rate. They focus on the law of averages. They know if they keep swinging the bat they will eventually get on base.
In 1952, Roger Bannister a forma English athlete, ran in the Olympics in an attempt to beat the 4 minute mile record. In his race he came 4th place and failing to win anything. However, he refused to quit his goal to run the mile under 4 minutes. The historic event took place 6th May 1954 and Roger Bannister achieved his goal. Nowadays, runners do this all the time.
If you refuse to quit when you fail, you can ultimately succeed. You need to be willing to get back up.
Abraham Lincoln was defeated a number of times on his journey to become the 16th President of the USA. Today, he is considered to be one of the best. The wise man concluded:
‘It’s a mistake to suppose people succeed only through success. They often succeed through failure’.
By doing something the wrong way, you will soon learn to do it the right way. This is so true – practise makes perfect. The truth by failing in one area will drive you to explore other areas.
Most success in life is through trial and error. However, if you don’t like something then you are likely to fail. But this is driven by the lack of effort and commitment. If you hate your job, you are likely to fail at it.
What do you understand about serving leadership? The benefit of failure makes you less judgemental of others. When you experience failure, you become more sympathetic. Instead of pointing and condemning others of their failures, instead you lend a helping hand and show them the way. Instead of saying, ‘I can’t believe you did that’. You take the view that you have been there and because of this understand their pain. This makes you a better mentor.
In the dictionary, striving and struggle comes before the word succeed. Coincidence or done on purpose?
Make the transition to live the dream. Learn from the mistakes you make. Don’t be afraid and have the right perspective.
We can all aspire to achieve better things. It may be a case of changing direction and doing something you have never done, but always dreamt of. I’m helping people to think positively about the future and how best use their time. I believe that people can find a way within to pursue an idea and a vision. We all have the ability to take control of our lives, but many just don’t know it or know how.
