It usually seems like we have two options in life: succeed or fail. Get what you worked for and you’re a success. Fall short of that, and you’re a failure. Many think about these two outcomes as if they were binary. But maybe it’s time we rethink failure. That is, how we can use failure to provide advantages that we might not gain otherwise. Here are tips or hacks to transform any failure into success.
Failures are a part of life. They are an essential element to moving forward and going after what you want. If you’re not failing, it means you’re not in action or being bold enough! So, expect failures. Welcome them in. It means you’re growing, stretching and trying new things.
Find the lesson
Every failure is a lesson waiting to be discovered. If something went wrong, ask yourself what you learned from it. Find the breakthrough in the breakdown, and take away a golden nugget that will only make you better in the long run.
Add fuel to the flame
Let that setback be your driving force to move closer to what will work in your life. Try a different way, put more into it. Let it recommit you to being your best, showing up fully and playing with all you’ve got.
Release and receive
To create room for the things you want in life, you must be willing to release what hasn’t been working, so you have room to invite in what will work. If there’s no room for all that goodness to be received, it will always be waiting for you, off in the distance, until your past failures are released.
Get honest feedback and apply
Have someone on your side that you can count on for honest feedback. Find out what you could’ve done better, what needs a little sharpening, and what areas you may have missed. We all have blind spots, and we need someone else to shine a light on them. Once you know what to focus on, then apply.
