Failing can be negative or positive. Depending on what it does to you, how you take it and what you learn from it. When something doesn’t work as planned, then a 720 Entrepreneur considers it a failure. The only question that remains is how you will respond to that failure? Failing is apart of living, and if taken the correct way, will prove the best of all teachers.
Although you gain a tremendous amount from failing, you do not want to become a habitual failure. Recognizing, realizing and accepting that you will fail from time to time, you do not want to become use to it. Failing continually means you are a loser and that is something you cannot afford to be. The reality is that you want to overcome your failures so that you negate its negative effects on your life.
You cannot be afraid to do things that you can and will possibly fail in. In other words fear not failure itself but rather fear any intentions to fail. Overcoming failure can be extremely difficult if you are prone to self-pity and self-loathing. At times you may need to bottom out and do a little bit of self loathing, but eventually, sooner rather than later you must snap out of it and continue to march forward to your goals.
This is when your dedication, discipline and determination kicks in. The overall strength of your state of mind is what gives you the tools and ability to overcome failure in your life and business endeavors. Failure is defeated when self-motivation is united with dedication, discipline and determination. There is no way around employing these self perfecting attributes if one is trying to condition themselves for success, just as a an athlete conditions for the sport that they’d compete in.
The difficulty of overcoming failures is rooted in the lack of trust and belief in yourself and your own capabilities. You cannot expect others to believe in you, if you do not believe in yourself and trust in yourself. Taking this into consideration, you must ask yourself do you truly believe that you can accomplish whatever it is you really want. If you can be honest with yourself then you are one step closer to overcoming a past failure or a future one.
If you are of the belief that you cannot accomplish what you want to, then you simply must admit it and move forward from there. Not believing in yourself is only an indication of why you must convince yourself that you must believe in yourself. A major incentive should be that no one else can do this for you, and if you don’t then you will always be stuck where you are. If you do believe in yourself then your next step is to create a foundation for confidence building strategies that gradually solves the problems that caused you to fail in the past.
By setting incremental goals that lead up to solving the overall problem of your past failures, you are effectively formulating and systematizing your failure into a template for all future circumstances and situations of all kinds; in which solutions can be implemented from according to need and necessity. This makes avoiding failure and overcoming it organic and spontaneous, because you’ve already made a template of what not to do, so all you are left with is what to do.
