Here’s a question for you: How many items on your to-do list have you accomplished lately?
If you have all (or almost everything) checked, congratulations! I bet you’re floating in seventh heaven right now!
But if it’s not close to checking all your boxes, it’s easy to start feeling like a failure and getting frustrated along the way.
But that defeatist attitude will get you nowhere!
You have to adopt a new way of thinking about failure and success, a different perspective than the one you have been TAUGHT, TRAINED and CONDITIONED to believe in for years and years and years.
Today, we will discuss that false thinking and all that misconception that is hidden in your subconscious mind.
This is really what has been holding you back and keeping you stuck in this endless cycle of criticizing yourself and failing to take action because of that fear of failure, leading to the destruction of confidence in you.
I was also there and I can tell you that if you continue and work this fear in yourself, you will achieve success!
After reading this article, you will realize that failure is not an enemy at all.
In fact, it is an ally that will lead you to success!
So hang on, find out about this powerful philosophy that changed my way of thinking, changed my situation, and ultimately my whole life.
The Concept that makes you feel like a failure
You and I have been conditioned to believe that we are in the midst of success and failure.
I like this:
I meanSociety tells us to do more of those successful things in order to succeed and avoid those unpleasant and unsuccessful things at all costs.
False belief is just doing successful things.
Fake marketing gurus are trying to sell you that shiny new item, Facebook’s latest pixel trick, newest tool, and everything else these people claim that if you don’t have it, you can’t be successful.
So, What do you do?
You get stuck in a circle where you are confused just looking for what to do.
Trying to figure it out for years and years.
Looking for the right niche, hoping to make the right decision at all times and use only the right tools.
And this way of thinking is what prevents you from achieving anything!
You try to do “all good” and that prevents you from seeing the big picture and you postpone the action!
Even from the beginning!
You avoid failure as if this were the end of the world and you become so cautious that you stay off the fence and hesitate to take risks for that fear of failure …
It’s the same thing that paralyzes you!
Fear of failure prevents you from taking the first step toward your goal or objective.
The notion that you are in the midst of success and failure is nothing but junk.
It is a false belief.
It is not a reality.
And it’s definitely not what really works.
So what is the truth? What is the true formula for success that can keep you from constantly feeling like a failure?
The Formula of success is simple … You have to go through it, learn from it and you will achieve success
Instead of thinking of yourself as always at the crossroads of success and failure lurking, here is what you should think:
Success is on the other side of failure.
It’s like he said Edison, “I did not have 9000 failures, but 9000 ways on how not to make an electric light bulb” until I finally managed to create the electric light bulb that we know today.
Unless you take the first step and really go through those failures, you can never be successful.
So you are not in the middle of two islands where success is on one side and failure on the other.
You are right where you need to be to GO THROUGH failure to succeed.
Let me tell you a little story …
When I started, trying to do my first business and hoping to take it off, I was convinced that I needed to find the right things to do at all times.
and guess what?
I wasn’t always able to do the perfect things, and every time I tried something and it didn’t work, I stopped completely and went back to the thinking and research phase.
It wasn’t until I really reformulated my thinking about where success is in my life compared to where failure is, that I understood that progress forward is the missing link.
Why failure and success go hand in hand
Do you feel like a failure for your plans, business and goals that you never achieved?
Close the negative voices in your head that tell you that you are a failure…. there is no failure.
Your new goal is to keep moving forward and keep taking steps to get where you want to be.
Failure and success go together.
You shouldn’t mind if it “works”.
You should worry if it doesn’t work and that will get you back on the drawing board.
Going back to the drawing board is what it’s all about!
The more you try these things that don’t work, the more of these little failures you get, the more you learn something new and create your path that will lead you to success.
Maybe your first marketing funnels were bullshit. Or your first headlines or copy for the ads you wrote were horrible.
You probably didn’t have ROI on your first Facebook ad campaigns OR you screwed up your first WordPress installation.
The long list of your failures, of my failures goes on and on and on.
But it is these failures, these experiences that make you stronger, wiser, and more capable of success!
You can’t succeed if you don’t go through failure and learn from it
How to stop feeling like a failure
This is the secret ingredient that ultimately leads to success.
Know deep down in your heart that to succeed, you will go through many failures.
There will be many tests and errors that you will have to carry out, but hey, It’s your BEST teacher!
So start implementing and take imperfect actions.
What you have to do is move forward and overcome the failure on the other side.
Once you overcome the challenges, success awaits you on the other side.
That is really the fact of the matter and what it takes to succeed.
If you hesitate to take action and keep putting off your plans, you will never get anywhere.
You have to get your feet wet and take steps to discover the true “correct form” of doing things as you go.
Keep moving forward, keep acquiring new knowledge and acquiring new skills.
Implement that long list of targets one after the other to help you cross over to the other side.
I hope this has inspired you to take a leap and act because you are made for bigger things. You just have to start now.
