Are you tired of always being a runner-up and now want to bag success but a failure already scares you?
Failure must not slow you down; the faster you fail, learn from your mistakes, and try again, the faster you will find the solutions you seek. Practice failing quickly and then getting back up and trying again.
To learn from mistakes, you must first acknowledge them, analyze them, and then address them freely with your team. And not just at the conclusion, but at regular intervals throughout the endeavor. The moment you normalize failure, the more chances there are for you to better your potential.
Failing better is being open and honest about any mistakes you or your team members make. You can’t learn everything you can from mistakes if you try to hide them or soft pedal them. Be brave because you’ll not only be facing failures but also solving them and this requires courage.
When you become so invested in a specific strategy that you can’t let go of it, even after it has been proven to be incorrect, a deepening commitment trap occurs. Keep your ego in check: if one path becomes a dead end, don’t be afraid to abandon it and seek out another.
Commitment and perseverance will not only help you in reaching your short-term goals but also make progress happen for the long-term ones. Great leaders are tenacious for something, not just for themselves. Their dedication to a cause allows them to see past a setback and see it as an opportunity to grow.
Most people are often afraid of even trying because of failures while some get intensely disheartened after experiencing failures and eventually give up. But the truth is success and failure are not two opposing ideas, but rather failure makes up the road to success. #LiveTheGreatLife #RubenLicera #FailToSucceed
