Episode 11: Perspective of Failure
Play • 42 min

Having the right perspective of failure is crucial to success.  So many people let temporary "failures" (which you'll find out in this episode shouldn't be called failures) take them out of the game.  But at the end of the day, failure is inevitable.  Challenges are going to come up.  You are going to make mistakes.  Things are not going to go your way sometimes.  But if you can learn how to push through this and grow from it, you will eventually become the person you need to be to achieve your goals. 

Failure is not fun.  Nobody goes into something saying, "I can't wait to fail!"  However, while it's not fun, failure can be very valuable if put in the right perspective.  In this episode today, you'll learn how failures are not there to make you quit; instead, they are there to teach you something, help you grow, and steer you in the right direction.  You'll also learn what failure really is (which is different from how many people view failure).  I also detail a few of my own failures, how I viewed them at the time, and how I view them now.

Failure has many benefits, if you're willing to look for them.  That includes drive and motivation, feedback, and a change of actions.  The key is learning how to leverage failure to your benefit, and this episode is all about giving you that perspective.  I also give you 5 questions to ask yourself after failure that will help you put it into perspective in real time.  Also, make sure you listen to the end of the episode, where I will give you an activity to reflect on one of your past failures using the ideas I discuss.  

If you really want to achieve your goals, this is an important episode to listen to.  Failures will happen, and they can either discourage you or push you forward.  How you handle them is your choice.  Yes, you heard that right.  You have a choice of how you perceive and handle failure.  Your perception and the actions you take when failure occurs will determine how successful you can truly be.
