Fail Like a Pro: Here’s Why You Should

By on September 3, 2013

Fotolia_57020084_XSI’ve wasted more money than I care to remember on ideas that didn’t work and I know what it’s like to go round and round in circles. It can happen to any one of us at one time or another. The important thing from a personal development point of view is that I came through it.

There are two major lessons I want you to take away from this article:

1. Fail Quickly

The quicker you fail, the quicker you’ll realize that something isn’t going to work, in turn the quicker you’ll find something that does work. It’s much better to find out now, rather than never. Just drop it; learn from your mistake(s), then move on.

2. Fail Properly

If a person loses absolutely everything (their home, their clothing, their possessions, their dignity) they become someone who’s really got nothing else left to lose. With nothing left to lose, we have a person who has got everything to gain.

And, two home truths:

  1. The harder you fall, the higher you bounce.
  2. No one is immune to failure – including celebrities, politicians, gurus or anyone else for that matter.

Wherever there’s an opportunity for success, there’s also an opportunity for failure. So if you’re serious about your goals, your business, your dreams, then you must scale it up; otherwise you may just as well go back to what you did before.

You should never be afraid of failure – accept it for what it is. Pick yourself up, grit your teeth and get on with it.
