You NEED to f**k up.
How many times have you told yourself you were going to “wake up earlier”, “go to the gym more”, or “study ahead of time and not wait til the last minute,”?
How many times have you told yourself you were going to “wake up earlier”, “go to the gym more”, or “study ahead of time and not wait til the last minute,”? Or you end up trying it once, and it doesn’t work out and call it quits. How many times have you told yourself you were going to do something, do it once, and then give up on it? If you answered “never” to those questions, then you’ve bested me.
The thing is, trying and failing is part of the process. Your “failure” is a stepping stone to the better person that you are aspiring to be. You need to build a mindset that separates the great from the mediocre. Transform the concept of failure from being an end to being a process- a process of learning, iterating, and relentlessly charging forward.
Here are your three focuses for the day:
Shift your perspective on failure: Do not view failure as a setback, see it as a lesson. Each failure teaches you a unique lesson, that if learned, will nudge you closer to your goals. Take advantage of one of life’s greatest teachers.
Practice persistence: You need to understand that success isn’t achieved overnight. It’s the result of consistent effort, tenacity, and the willingness to try again… and again… and again. It isn’t just hard work, it’s about resilience in the face of setbacks.
Encourage innovation: What you’re trying isn’t working out? Kill it, and move on to the next. If one method isn’t yielding the results you want, it means you’re sh** or your method is sh**. Chances are, it’s the latter. Growth is not a straight line up, growth is exponential.
Each failure is a step forward, not backward. It’s an integral part of the journey to success. Embrace your failures, and learn from them. Use them as stepping stones. Failures only hinder you if you ignore them and keep doing what doesn’t work.
