Laugh in the Face of Failure

There’s a story about an eight-year-old boy who brought home a report card filled with poor grades. His mother asked, “What have you to say about this?” The boy replied, “One thing is for sure, you know I ain’t cheating!” This little boy found a bright side to his failure.

Why failure is good for you

How do you view failure? Do you see it as something negative that you don't want to be associated with or do you see it as something positive? Most people in the world don't like failure.

Fear of failure is the main reason why more than 80% of people in the world are not prepared to change their circumstances. Why do people fear failure so much? The reason for this is because people don't understand the dynamics involved in success and failure.

Every Failure Is An Opportunity In Disguise

As much as we would all love to live an easy life with endless resources and finances, most people might admit that life would be pretty monotonous if there were no obstacles or failures. Evidence of this might be seen by watching the celebrity gossip television programs, where the rich and famous of Hollywood seem to bounce from one crisis to another, seemingly bored of living the good life. How many times have you watch such stories in the news, and thought what you would do to benefit humanity if you could have their vast resources of wealth, power and influence.

Failure and Success

How many times do you have to fail at something in order to succeed? Did you know that Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times while trying to invent the light bulb? He certainly had a "learn and do" attitude! He was able to turn each failed experiment into a successful way not to invent the light bulb. So what can we learn from this? You can adopt the `fail forward' strategy too.

How To Manage A Crisis

Let me begin by stating that the best way to handle a crisis, is to prevent one.

So when it comes to things like network and computer failures, it behooves you to: use reliable computer systems; employ the best possible technical staff to keep your network trouble-free and respond to problems; make back-ups of your data and software (at least daily); and adopt industry best practices, such as security practices. The same goes with all your plant and equipment.

Nevertheless, disasters happen. Natural disasters. Terrorist attacks. There are some things that are simply unforeseeable.

Stop Giving Yourself Permission To Fail

It’s a powerful statement isn’t it? Because who on earth would ever give themselves permission to fail? But, and I say this without any fear of contradiction, most people I meet give themselves permission to fail time and time again. The problem is that the permission is given without even realizing it. I’m going to give a couple of examples of this so you can be aware of it and so you can stop doing it.
