Could Failure NOT Being An Option Be Keeping You From Your Business Success??
Most people spend their life in Fear Of Failing!
Can you relate?
Do you know some of these people?
Have you worked in this way before?
I know that I have, and let me tell you…
It didn’t really get me any where except going around in circles being stuck with where I was.
How does it get any better than that?
You see, most of us are brought up to do what we are told, follow the rules, don’t do anything wrong and FAILURE IS NOT A OPTION!
Really, how the heck can we go through life and live out our dreams if that is the way we have to be.
When you look around and study the great leader, inventors, and creators of this time and the past, you will find that they all did the opposite of what they were told, what people said they should do, and the failed a lot!
In fact, I have come to believe that on the path to success and the life of your dreams…
Failure is the ONLY OPTION!
How has failure played a role in your life and business?
Are you afraid of it?
Does it worry you?
Does it keep you up at night?
Well let me tell you, it doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to feel like failure is something that you did wrong.
One of the greatest inventors in history, Thomas Edison, was asked a question about failure at one point in his career.
They asked him about the 10,000+ times that he failed in his journey to invent the light bulb.
To which he replied, I just learned 10,000 ways how not to create one.
It is all a matter of perspective when it comes to failure.
And also the choice that you make when you stuff shows up around things that don’t go just as planned.
On the journey towards the life of your dreams, you will come across many times where things don’t work out the way you wanted and there will be people there to let you know that that is the reason why you should stop continuing to pursue your vision of the future.
When those things come up, I suggest the following:
1. Take a deep breath and remind yourself of what your vision and dream life is. Feel what it will be like once you are there, and let that feeling be the driving force behind you continuing to move forward.
2. Make the choice to keep moving forward. Remember your decision that you made to start on this journey in the first place. Let that fuel you to continue on the journey.
3. Ask powerful questions like, What’s right about this situation that I am not seeing here? Or What else is possible?
4. Take massive action to move you forward and push past the so called failure that is right in front of you.
Failure is only what you choose for it to be. If it wasn’t they everyone would see the same failures as everyone else.
So the next time something doesn’t go exactly as planned and people around you are dragging your down, or maybe even that voice in your head starts barking at you… Remember your dreams and vision and choose to continue on the journey.
You’ll be glad that you did.
To your massive success!
