PFA 027: 4 Things you can do to respond to failure.
On today's show, I want to pick up on the topic I spoke about last week and that is the big F word. Failure, but today I want to look at what to do and how you can respond to failure.
So as we begin this new year, you like many other people may have reflected on last year. What went well, what did not. How you did according to your goals in all the various areas of life and business.
Now for some people, that look back can be good as you recognise that on the whole you did well and met most of your goals. However, for other people you may look back at the disaster which was last year in horror and wonder how you will move forward or you may look back and see those things that did not go according to plan and failed.
In the last episode of this podcast, I mentioned a quote by Winston Churchill. 'Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts,' and that brings me to a question from a listener to this channel which is a follow on from late week.
Mike asked, 'Last year for me was a failure as I did not reach any of my goals and in some cases went backwards. What can I do differently this year so that I reach the goals I want to reach? Some one said I am reaching to high and should expect to fail, so I must lower my expectations. Is that the right? I will avoid disappointment that way.'
The first thing to say is don't lower your expectations or your goals. That only breeds mediocrity.
