Imagine a life without setbacks, self-doubt or failure; sounds pretty good, right?
Unfortunately, failure is a part of life, especially in business. Still, we can reprogram our mindset to view failure as a necessary and beautiful process and our greatest teacher.
Let’s start by thinking about how you see failure. Does it feel overwhelming to you? Do you see it as a dream-ending, life-stopping disaster, or is it a beneficial process that moves you one step closer to finding success? If your current mindset is the first option, then a change in perception could bring a positive and powerful transformation to your life.
Fear is part of human nature and as an entrepreneur, I faced this same fear.
One way I have learned to overcome this is to start by figuring out where the fear comes from and reframing how I feel about failure. I remember how hard it was to think positively when I met failure until I recognised that the negative parts of our lives and experiences have just as important a role in finding success as the positive ones. Now I view failure as a chance for growth, a source of education and inspiration.
Why do we fear failure? When you follow a routine with the same repetitive habits, your brain eventually gets comfortable and stops stretching, working, and “growing”, creating fear around anything outside this comfort zone. It takes courage to step from your comfort zone into the fear zone. It can be anxiety-provoking. But with perseverance, you will enter the learning zone, where growth begins, new skills are gained, and opportunities arise!
I have listed below a few ways in which you can reframe your failures to bring success in business and life. If you apply these ideas to your life, you’ll not only have an easier time dealing with failure, but you’ll also be able to grow as a person every time you do fail.
Now it’s time to imagine who you would be or what you could achieve if failure weren’t an option!
Start by asking yourself, ‘What would I do if I were being more courageous? If I knew I couldn’t fail, what would I do? Would you start your own business or scale your current one to new heights? Escape the 9-5 and work from a beach? Or do you dream of more time-freedom to spend with family and friends?
Now really visualise that life, the highest version of you and think, is the risk of failure worth that vision?
