Tycoonism- “A failure is a man who has blundered but is not capable of cashing in on the experience. “

March 25, 2009

Failure is sometimes inevitable, sometimes unavoidable. You ask yourself, “Why have I failed? Why am I such a failure?” There are a number of reasons why we fail – lack of preparation, lack of focus, lack of desire, fear…all of these come into play in our lives on a daily basis. When we fail, we need to assess the real reason why to AVOID repeating the same mistakes. More often, we repeat the very same mistakes until we pinpoint where or what exactly in that particular phase in our life made us fail.

Failure is sometime necessary for some people. How we come out of the situation is the important point. You must ask yourself:

• What have this experience bought me?
• How can I improve next time?
• What are the contributing factors that caused me to fail?
• How can I avoid failing?
• What have I learned?
• In what way can I use this experience?

When you feel a sense of responsibility to your actions, accepting defeat or failure is not at all bad. The danger is with the DENIAL of failure. When you deny, you are turning a blind eye on your mistakes and this, in every sense, is not a good show of responsibility. Failure should not scare us from trying yet again. What makes failure and mistakes valuable in our lives is how we CHOOSE to LEARN from them. If we choose not to learn, then we are putting NO VALUE on that experience.

Success and failure is a two sided coin (Tycoonism- “Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live. Have you begun to live or are you living in fear?”) How it lands once you have thrown it up depends solely on how you look at it. What you must shift is your focus from the negative to the positive side of the coin. The fact is, if you don’t shift your perspective, you have failed from the beginning. You have failed before you have even started…you have talked yourself out of it.

It’s important to understand that we are not alone or unconnected in this world. Our actions affect someone else at all times. Cause and effect is always in play. We do something; someone or something responds or reacts. Think about the ripple effect…My modest mission is to inspire you to figure out what you really want from your life; to motivate you to transform your entire way of thinking; to empower you with a proven vehicle to get you where you want to go; and to elevate you to your next level of success.
