When you fail, do not label yourself as a failure. Everyone trips and falls sometime in life. Achievers see failures as momentary events rather than lifelong epidemics. They realize failure cannot be avoided, so they welcome it as a natural and necessary part of the leadership journey.
People don’t understand how to be resilient, how to bounce back before they don’t see value in themselves and thus they can’t see value in others.
FAILING FORWARD IS NOT FALSE SELF-ESTEEM
I place high value on praising people, especially children. In fact, I believe that people live up to your level of expectation. But I also believe that you have to base your praise on truth. You don’t make up nice things to say about others. Here’s the approach I use to encourage and lead others:
What You Need to Do
UNDERSTAND THE SEVEN ABILITIES NEEDED TO FAIL FORWARD
1. REJECT REJECTION
2. SEE FAILURE AS TEMPORARY
3. SEE FAILURES AS ISOLATED INCIDENTS
4. KEEP EXPECTATIONS REALISTIC
5. FOCUS ON STRENGTHS
6. VARY APPROACHES TO ACHIEVEMENT
7. BOUNCE BACK
4 Steps on How to Fail Forward
Traits of people who haven’t gotten over the past:
1. Comparing yourself to others
2. Rationalizing why you can’t move on from the past
3. Isolation from others to avoid confronting the issue
4. Regretting what you can’t change
5. Bitterness towards the past
Success is . . .
Knowing your purpose in life,
Growing to reach your maximum potential, and
Sowing seeds that benefit others.
