Chapter 5: Understanding who you are to succeed

NEED SOMETHING HERE. KNOW THYSELF**** related to the bottom paragraph and transition to MBTI

 

If you truly want to succeed, you will need to face failure at face value.

Failure is not negative. Most entrepreneurs thrive and look for failures. What is not working for them, why did it not work? How is it not working? When did it go wrong? Where was the issue?

Of course, you want to avoid failure at all times, but no one is perfect.

What you should focus on is:

  • Recognize the Failure
  • Retrace Your Steps
  • Find and write specific detail as to what happened. Keep track so you won’t do it again
  • Failure means you are doing something, so keep on moving forward
  • If you are not failing, you are not working hard enough
  • It’s what you do next that is either failure or success.

If you do not confront your failures and simply give up, you’re a failure. If you decide to do something about it, you have made success. Do not dwell upon what had happened, but find what happened and see what you can do to fix it. Success is when you understand your failures as an opportunity to learn, adapt, and move forward. Change your understanding of failure like how Thomas Edison believed in, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times, the light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.
