What I’ve learnt this week.. Take every opportunity as a chance to improve. How do you win? You lose.
The best of the best never win first time, and this is because they have learnt so much through failure. To succeed in life you have to fail 1, 2, 3, 4, a million times, but its pushing through that battle that takes you to the top eventually. Failure is only failure when you give up!! #dontbackdown 🙌💪
Nothing worth having comes easy.
So, instead of beating yourself up when you fail and giving up, lets talk about figuring out a way to overcome the obstacle.
So, how do I deal with failure? Here are my tips:
- First, accept how you feel.
Don’t try to push it away by putting the responsibility onto the rest of the world, especially if you know that deep down, that this one’s on you. As hard as it is, you must learn to accept it and OWN it, to let it in and to hurt for a while instead of trying to reject it all and to keep it away. Being in denial isn’t good for any of us and by doing this we learn to build strong walls within to channel our emotion to the next adventure!
- Remember, this is only temporary.
When you’ve had a setback it’s very easy to start thinking that you will always keep failing, and you’ll end up thinking that YOU are a failure. Instead, remind yourself that just because you failed today or yesterday, it doesn’t mean that you’ll fail the next time and the time after!
- Remind yourself: anyone who wants to do things of value in life will fail AT ONE POINT.
Majority of the time, we just hear about people’s successes. But the path to success has tonnes of setbacks, and thats how we learn. The story of someone’s success may seem only bright and fast-moving because thats all they WANT us to see. Social media is VERY deceiving.
- Find support.
A conversation with someone close to you can be very helpful and change your mood completely. That is all.
- Look at the situation from the other side and move forward.
Is failure an indication to stop? No. Is failure an indication to perhaps try things a little differently towards the same direction? Absoutely. Our set-backs CREATE us as people. Our set-backs filter the strong from the weak. Our set-backs determine who’s gunna make it and who isn’t You CAN make it if you put your mind to it. Accept the situation, move on, don’t dwell on it and remember you can’t change the past!
- Believe in yourself!!
Remember that YOU are not a failure, that everyone have setbacks. Over time, you learn not to be affected as much by failure, and you will use it as fuel to make sure that it doesn’t happen again!
The bigger the challenge, the bigger the opportunity to grow. Take every day as another day to succeed and never let go of the true, genuine support that helps to get you there💕
Do whatever you need to do to better yesterday’s actions and decisions✌🏼️
Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. That time will pass anyway…
