Someone recently told me that her coach asked her coaching group how many times they were going to fail. They were supposed to choose a number.
Does that seem odd to you?
I found the idea intriguing.
If you’re afraid of failing, you won’t try hard enough to succeed. Then your failure will be caused by your own misguided beliefs.
Why do we think of failure as such a horrible thing? It isn’t. It just means things didn’t go the way you hoped or expected.
Yet so many people avoid achieving their dreams because they’re too afraid to fail along the way.
Do you think of failure as something that happens to you that’s outside of your control?
Do you blame your failures or mistakes on something or someone?
Or do you react by feeling bad about yourself, thinking that you’re a loser and labeling yourself as a failure?
Listen to learn why having a healthy approach to failure and learning from your mistakes is a fundamental component of being your best self.
