Failure is not a disease, but rather an antidote is not a disorder but rather a direction. Failure asks, success answers, failure teaches, success learns, failure speaks, success listens and is all about how you are going to regulate your life.
The common mistakes we have been doing in our lives aren’t the reason for our failures, but rather, things are bound to happen with respect to how our lives had been programmed.
We get reasons to our failures because we live in a meaningful world, the world is a philosophical territory where all ideas must come together to suit logic.
Don’t be too much depressed because you have failed. It is normal when success comes, your story will inspire other failed personnel.
Denis Waitley declares failure as the source of our strength, he cites.
“failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing and being nothing”
Will you live to say nothing?
Will you live to do nothing?
Or you will live being nothing?
The fact that your success is delaying doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t come. Patience is needed, vigilant full of total focus is what you need.
Don’t let failure undertakes you, that is where you are going to be depressed, hopeless and useless.
Your life is full of meaningful things, create and define it by your own, look down upon failure, face it, crush it, demolish it and move forward.
Physical strength is irrelevant in the battlefield of failure, you need mental strength, emotional strength and more from imagination.
You can be allergic to failure’s defeat only if you can prepare and manipulate its weaker points.
By finding the meaning of your life, by setting an achievable goal in your life, by making a priority in your life, by giving meaning to your life, with determination and perseverance, you can overcome failure.
He continues to say…
“mistakes are painful when it happens, but years later, a collection of mistakes is what becomes experience”
When there is a failure, there lies a mistake. It will surely come, but hey! That’s not the end, try again, until your mistakes will be fully corrected. The only rule is to make sure you never repeat it again.
They are painful though, but the more different mistakes you commit, the nearer you become an expert and the more you gain experience.
Mistakes in your business is a future collection of your experience.
Mistakes in your life as a whole are self-teaching lessons which you will use later in years ahead.
Just correct your mistakes.
“the reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, learn about them, or even seriously consider them as believable and achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way and who will be sharing the adventure with them”
Defining your goals is to beat and move your life no matter the ups and downs.
Leaning about your goals is not to repeat your past mistakes that resulted in your failure.
Believing in your goals is when you start everything afresh when there is a total breakdown of your plans.
Your life becomes achievable, only when you are able to beat all failures and stand on the verge of becoming successful.
And he says..
“you must learn from your past mistakes, but not lean on your successes”
Surely, this will make you stronger, more vigilant, less repulsive, you will understand life at any point in time and will be able to define any situation on anyway it may appear.
“expect the best, plan for the worst and prepare to be surprised”
You will do this by, but hey…
“forget about the consequence of failure. Failure is the only temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success”
Thinking about the consequence of failure brings more worries, more flashbacks, and retrogression.
If care is not taking, you will be a constant toll for failure, because you will get reasons for every failure that comes your way. You will be misdirected and misled.
Trust in the direction of failure.
Denis Waitley comes again…
“when you make a mistake, or get ridiculed or rejected, look at mistakes as learning experience and ridicule as ignorance…Look at rejection at one’s performance not as a turn down performer”
And ends as…
“you must consider the bottom line…”
Nobody is interested in where and how you started, they are interested in how you came to end it.
