Rising Professional Challenge Series #9
For individuals to smile away failure knowing it is a learning opportunity and to immediately start right back pursuing the end goal.
WHY THIS CHALLENGE IS IMPORTANT
Often times individuals never try because they are too afraid of failure. We have all failed at something and will fail more in the future; rather than having the thought of failure hold us back, use failure as a way to demonstrate to yourself you know where your limits are and how to stretch ourselves outside of our comfort zone to grow.
HOW DO WE GET THERE
As Edison once said about his invention of the light bulb, “I have not failed. I have just found ten thousand ways that will not work.” Failure is a part of life and is the primary way that we learn. We must welcome failure and encourage ourselves to persevere onward in order to learn and grow. We must understand that failure is a welcomed part of the learning process. A failure is only a true failure when we do not learn from it and continue to repeat the same mistakes.
Our challenge for you over the next month is to practice smiling and reflecting upon failure. What did you learn from this failure? How can you change in the future to prevent a similar failure? How will this lesson improve you?
