In order to grow, you need failure. Understand and accept failure as a part of life. We often experience that learning is more effective in failure than in success because failure teaches us what works and what does not. When we embrace our strengths or limitations – we become better. People are often so afraid they’ll fail at something that they don’t try. Don’t be one of those people. Everyone has failed at something in his or her life, but not everyone tries again and again. World hard every day to reach your goals and you will. Keep going and you will find success. Subscribe!

Zack Abbott CEO and co-founder of ZBiotics, a company developing bioengineered probiotics founded in 2016. ZBiotics' product, which breaks down an unwanted byproduct of alcohol, is the first in a line of products ZBiotics is creating to help consumers actively engage in healthier lives. Beyond alcohol, ZBiotics is working on other engineered probiotics that will give the body new biological functions: everything from helping the body resist environmental toxins and infection (e.g., lead-contaminated water, radiation) to producing useful and health-promoting nutrients (e.g., fiber, high-quality protein). By building genetically engineered products that solve real human needs, he hopes to reverse the misinformation and lack of understanding that has contributed to the negative public perception of GMOs. Zack has a PhD in microbiology & immunology from the University of Michigan, where he enjoyed his research untangling complex and elegant webs of bacterial gene regulation.

A healthy sense of self-confidence is all about having a balanced view of yourself — taking pride in your abilities while recognizing your flaws. Confidence can help you to take on the world with more energy and determination, resulting in better relationships, quality work and a feeling of being connected with your surroundings. Have a coach Coaching is still not understood by everyone, and that is entirely normal. It is not a must to have a coach, and yes you can get yourself to a higher potential without a coach also, but with a coach, you will get there quicker, better and most importantly with more confidence. A coach will understand and help you understand the source of the lack of confidence and fear of failure. A coach can give you ideas for ways to improve yourself, but more importantly they can help them become aware of your blind spots. Simply put, a coach will help you stoke your success.

It all starts with you. Being open-minded is important because it creates opportunities for you to learn from others. Learning about the way others live or why they believe what they do. Learning does not mean you will change your lifestyle or beliefs, but simply grow in knowledge. Having an open-mind allows you to become aware. It allows you live in a way that's more approachable. The power of surrounding yourself with the right people The people you surround yourself with can either drag you down or lift you up. Take the time to create a circle of people that are the most positive, supportive people you can find. This also means letting go of the people who are pulling you down. If you want to make a positive change in your life, remember, the people around you have a critical influence on your energy, growth and probability of success. Positive people bring out the best in you and make you feel motivated and happy. They help you when you’re in need, encourage you to go after your dreams and are there to celebrate your successes or support you as you move past your challenges. If you want to become your best self I challenge you to review, rethink, and cull through your social media and real life "friends" and find the right people and media content that will actually help you get there.

Having a mentor who can re-inspire and motivate you is crucial. The right mentor can help you, quite literally, grow your business. Anyone can accelerate their learning curve by learning from a mentor's experiences, This could save you time and money and help you avoid mistakes.

Mentors are invaluable for so many reasons, but essential for providing knowledge, motivation, advice and counsel, encouragement when you need it most, help with personal development and so much more. Mentors can become your go-to person for advice and support during hard times. They are also around to celebrate your wins, regardless if they are big or small. If you are lucky enough to find a personal mentor who can be all of these things to you, you will have an advantage over many others, because you have the right tools that can take you to the top! F.O.C.U.S Follow One Course Until Success. It is important to remain focused on a single task at a time to be more productive, to create quality work and to be less stressed. As you focus upon a single task, trying to avoid distractions, the brain begins to focus on that task all by itself. This allows you to accomplish the task much faster than if you are attempting to finish two or more tasks at the same time. If you can take control of your ability to focus, you have given yourself a powerful tool that will enable you to perform at a consistently high level and be both effective and efficient in your work efforts. Focusing will help you have better quality work, more success, and achievement of your professional goals. Syncify An app that lets you be social at a distance.

For others, it is just the beginning of something wonderful. Failure isn’t fun, but it is an opportunity to learn, reflect and regroup. Often when you are battling uncertainty, you adapt and change. Sometimes it takes a while but if you can bounce back it can lead to successes that taste all the sweeter. Failure is a natural, necessary part of being human. No one is exempt when it comes to failure. It’s part of life. So don’t quit, use failure to your advantage. Accept the push. Mindset are foundational to your success Success and happiness are all about mindset. I believe our thoughts have incredible power over our everyday lives, and that our moods and behaviors are a reflection of how we think. Change your mindset, change your life. These all sounds so easy, yet many of us tell ourselves it’s too late to change careers or that we don’t have enough time to learn something new. Identify and overcome your personal mental blocks. Create new habits to support your mindset change. Think of your mindset as a voice and manifest all the positivity you could think of. A positive frame of mind will invite success into your life. All it takes is a few simple tweaks to your thinking to become your happiest, most fulfilled self. Syncify An app that lets you be social at a distance.

Syncifying Syncify (https://anchor.fm/syncify) Top Tip Be investable Make yourself investable. Share your passion, don’t be afraid to think big, practise your pitch and know your limitations. Understanding the value and investability of a company is a crucial skill for business owners and VC’s alike. Serious investors who have heard over a thousand pitches and read hundreds of plans are most impressed with founders who make the right points in the shortest amount of time with the least prompting. To be taken seriously by both investors and lenders, a company needs to show balance. Showing ambition tempered with realism and deep knowledge of your business and numbers is key. A great story and a sexy pitch deck might get you a meeting, but being organised, disciplined and realistic will take you all the way there. Syncify An app that lets you be social at a distance.

It brings people together and don’t we all want that for our children, our families, our community, and the world? Try to be kind to others to try and make a difference in the world, and also practice to try and make a difference in your own life as well. Face your fear of failing The fear of failing can be immobilizing – it can cause us to do nothing, and therefore resist moving forward. But when we allow fear to stop our forward progress in life, we're likely to miss some great opportunities along the way. what makes us fearless is not the fact that we do not experience fear, but that we are confident that we can deal with the consequences of our actions. Instead of talking yourself out of the fear by hoping that nothing negative would happen, focus on building confidence to deal with the consequences.

We don’t grow. We’re not challenged. We don’t get to find out what we’re made of. Breaking out of your comfort zone means taking up new challenges. This will automatically make you more productive as you work towards achieving the new goals. Getting out of your comfort zone from time to time creates just enough good stress to ramp up your focus, creativity, pace, and drive, and it helps you respond to life stress when unexpected things happen. Try to make small changes that take you out of the everyday and familiar, yet are not too emotionally challenging. You have within yourself the ability to make big change. Reach out Reaching out does not just mean having someone listen to you. It also means you get access to information, advice, guidance and other kinds of assistance from different people. Yet, in our society, some value their independence so much that asking for help seems like a weakness. It's important to talk. Whether it’s sending a text, messaging on social media sites, leaving a comment on a blog, meeting up for a coffee and a chat or sending a good old-fashioned letter. These are things that can help. It’s important to reach out, to let people in. It may seem scary. But believe me, it’s amazing the weight that lifts afterward. Just knowing someone else knows can make a huge difference to how much strength you have to cope with difficult situations.

As you slowly push past your comfort zone, you’ll feel more and more at ease about the new stuff which seemed so dangerous to you. Take the first step and I’m sure you’ll make it!

In order for us to take care of our bodies, we eat well, exercise and make sure to get enough sleep. That's our internal environment. And the environment that surrounds us -- air, soil, water and ecosystems -- is equally important for our health and the health and well being of others. It is so important that we do our due diligence in helping nature to thrive, however we can. As young people looking towards the future, we can all take responsibility for our planet and environment, making sure that That starts with taking care of the environment so that future generations will be able to enjoy the benefits in years to come. Stand up for what you care for One of the most difficult things for people to do is to stand up for their beliefs and what they care for. Sticking up for what you believe in and care for builds your self-respect because you're following through with your values. When you stand up for what you believe in, you are your own person. You are in charge of what you do. Stand up for what you believe in and care for, even if it means standing by yourself. Because even if you are standing alone, you'll know for a fact that it was your choice. Fight for what you believe in and care for because if you don’t stand up for them, who will? Try and try again Trying again is important since failures are a part of life and if we stop after failure we allow ourself to accept defeat. We should grow stronger with failure. With determination and perseverance we must keep trying to achieve what we want in life. Trying takes commitment and an intention to give the best of yourself to something without necessarily knowing the outcome. Focus on what can be learnt from a failure and hace a better chance of success the next time around. Syncify An app that lets you be social at a distance.

But the truth is, mistakes can be like gifts. Mistakes teach us the importance of staying humble. We learn that we are only human and that mistakes are inevitable. Without making mistakes, we would stay in our comfort zone, which leads us to inflexibility when things don’t work the way we want them to. Avoid judging Judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who you are. Regardless of the reason, we don't have a right to judge anyone. The least amount of judging we can do, the better off we are. We need to learn to love and accept each other no matter what. When you show people that you accept them and are not judging them it makes them feel so good about themselves. When we stop being judgmental, we start appreciating people and things for what they are; we start living in the present moment and we can simply enjoy life and be happy. So, judge less, accept more, and restore your happiness. Syncify An app that lets you be social at a distance. Listen to your favourite podcasts and books together with friends and groups.

Verla Fortier After a 40 year career as a nurse, and nursing professor, Verla finds that as more diseases are added to her systemic lupus diagnosis, her fears multiply. For the first year, she stayed inside her home trying to get better, and wanted to be the perfect patient. When this did not work, she decided to look into what trees, shrubs, and grass can do for her. When she applied what she found to her own situation, it worked. Then she found the research that was too good not to share. In her book, Take Back Your Outside Mindset: Live Longer, Prevent Dementia, and Control Chronic Illness, Verla shares her findings on exposure to trees, shrubs, plants, and grass as a powerful remedy. With simple directed activities, Verla takes you through the science of improving your health using the great outdoors. If you like alternative approaches, scientific evidence, and naturally occurring free resources, then you’ll love Verla’s liberating book. She also started a podcast called Your Outside Mindset for her to help people recognize that spending time outside is not just a nice thing to do, but it could also save your life. And because she wants to share science backed tips to live longer, prevent dementia, and control chronic illness by going outside.

Besides boosting happiness, positive emotion, and kindness, exposure to nature may also have physical and mental health benefits. Nature helps us cope with pain. Just a walk in the woods or a stroll by the beach on a sunny morning can awaken the innermost feelings of happiness and peace. Time in nature or viewing nature scenes provides a breathing space for our overactive minds, refreshing us moving forward. Staying close to nature, observing all the little and significant elements of it, and appreciating it from the very core, is therapeutic and self-healing. Even by saying and doing nothing, we can learn so much from connecting to our natural surroundings. It gives us the perspective for healthier living, the motivation to carry on, and the energy to keep trying.
