Failure is Just Part of Success

Stress Relief Tool – Failure Is Just Part Of Succeeding

Failures are just the universe’s way of providing you feedback on your way to success.

I’ve received a lot of positive feedback about previous articles on reframing fear and reframing failure. Interestingly, fear and failure go hand-in-hand because we are often so fearful of failure.

The fact of the matter is that we all fail. And failure builds our resiliency. You can also take steps to minimize failing in the future, such as:

  • learning from failing. Personally, I have learned far more from my many failures than my successes. When you completely understand your failures, you gain better insights into your talents that you can cultivate and your shortcomings that you should address.
  • working with a coach or mentor to provide you feedback, guidance and, when necessary, accountability.
  • Staying positive. That’s why I always ask those I am helping the following question when the possibility of failure comes up: “What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?” It opens up the world of possibility versus being in a stuck state.

And remember, when you are growing in areas of your life, those are often uncharted waters you have never been before. Of course, there will be waves pushing you in different directions – you just have to remember that those waves are not failures – they are just the universe’s way of providing you feedback on your way to success.
