Most people achieved their greatest successes
one step beyond what looked like their greatest failure.
Many times we think we shouldn't ever fail, but failure may provide us with the very feedback we need in order to refine our ideas and make them work. If you try to avoid failure, you often may not do the things necessary to succeed.
When you do fail (and all of us fail at some time or another), use that experience to guide you about what to do NEXT. How can you fix what failed? What is the next step? Focus on using the failure as feedback, and keep going!
Sometimes the success is even sweeter because of those failures along the way. Remember how many times Edison failed with the light bulb?
This week: Notice the things that didn't go according to your plan this week. Notice what didn't work. Use that as information to help you modify your plan, so that you keep moving forward. What will your success look like when you achieve it?
