“Failure” is feedback

“Failure” is feedback

 Failure”can simply be a great way to get us to pause in the midst of our process, and get some critical information to indicate that we may need to change direction,
try something new, continue our learning, or shift our focus.  

Imagine what would happen if we didn’t get that feedback, and continued endlessly along
the wrong path, toward the wrong goal, or without ever learning a new approach?

 The thought is pretty scary, isn’t it.
Failure then, can really be seen as positive feedback—information that gets us back on the right track!  
For, without it, we would surely be lost.  
The key then, is to identify it quickly, and change direction, try something new, or shift our focus.

Here are some tips:

 Always have a clear idea of where you want to go and continue to re-evaluate it as you move forward

 Identify specific milestones or markers along the way, to let you know you’re on the right track and celebrate each success

 If something doesn’t appear to be working, or working fast enough, don’t hesitate to try something new

 Continually learn—from others with whom you work, seek out experts, find others who  may have traveled down a similar road before

 And always remember:  

“You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call “failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down”

 “You NEVER fail until you stop trying”

 “If you are not making any mistakes, you’re not really doing anything with your life”
