No matter how good you are, from time to time, you’re going to fail.
Have you ever watched a baby learn to walk? They’ll take a few steps, then BOOM! The baby falls down.
If babies were like many adults, they would just accept that they’re no good at walking and stay on all four’s well into old age. Fortunately, babies don’t know how to accept defeat. Failure after failure, they get up. They find a new method and try again.
We have within us the drive to succeed, to never give up. It's just sometimes, we forget. The next time you face failure you can use these simple steps to get back on track.
1. Celebrate what worked. When you fail, it’s too easy to focus on the failure and be self-critical. Start by celebrating what went well.
2. Look at what didn’t work. Figure out exactly where you got off track or made a mistake.
3. Make a new plan and TRY AGAIN. Now that you know what works for you and what you could do differently, choose a new approach and give it your best.
Failure is part of life. But with the right mindset, you can turn any defeat into victory.
