Failure: Step 16

We all fail at something at some point in our lives. There is no success without failure so it is important that we bounce back from disappointment.

The most successful people have failed until they achieve success. We learn from failure. Failure is feedback. It is part of the process of working towards success.  We should not be afraid to move outside our comfort zone as success is around the corner.  It is the road to possibilities and opportunities.  The stumbling blocks in our life have to be seen as stepping stones and moving forward, even though we might feel that we are being pulled back. The most successful people turn stumbling blocks into opportunities. Self-pity is a waste of time so we should train our mind to deal with disappointments. When we come up against a stumbling block, it means the time is not quite right and we need to work that little bit harder to achieve success. If we have to work hard to achieve what we want, we will appreciate what we have. It makes us stronger people.

My Action Plan:

1  I need to ask myself on a daily basis:

How can I do better today and make my day more productive? Write a to-do list on everything I need to do that day and prioritise each task in order of importance. Tick off each item as it is completed and anything I have not managed to do that day, can be done the next.

Where or what is the opportunity? Retailing products, time on the phone looking for new sponsors, working on personal development, achieving my vision of financial freedom, the ability to buy what I want without having to worry.

Am I prepared to do everything necessary to make it happen? If I stay focused and work hard, I can achieve anything I want. If I keep positive, it will help me when things do not work out the way I want.

2  I need to repeat on a daily basis:

I have everything in order to be successful.

I can and I will find a way to achieve success.

I will accept failure as feedback and not as a setback.

I will get better each day if I keep working on my personal development and work towards my goals.
