How to Fail Your Way To Success

The past cannot be changed, forgotten or erased.

However, the lessons learned can prepare you for a brighter future.

Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes. John Dewey

This is something that seems to be very difficult to learn and live by. If we look back across the ghosts of events past, we often see that they repeat throughout human history.

We still wage wars against each other, still hunt animals to extinction,
still seek to one-up one another at every opportunity.

But still, all those lessons from the past sit there just waiting for us
to learn from them, all we have to do is look back and remember
them, learn from them and move forward into that brighter future.

The same is true in our businesses, often you leave a corporate
world to seek a better balance in your life, or because you do not
like the traditional ways of working in the corporate world, but then
in building your own future, your own business you adopt many of
the same attitudes and practices that made you move on in the first

Why is that?

What holds us back from accepting the lessons that are there waiting patiently for us to learn them.

One of my favorite axioms is that we should work smarter, not harder.

Yet every day, I see friends and colleagues working all hours in the same roles,
doing the same thing over and over, never moving forward or upwards.

As people with the entrepreneurial mindset, we will often see a
situation or circumstance and automatically visualize a way to
improve it, be it something simple like a buffet line, or something
much more complicated like project planning.

Project Management trainers would have you believe that this is a large and complicated task requiring specialist and expensive trainer to get right, you might’ve heard of phrases like ‘agile project management methodologies’ and ‘Prince 2’.

It’s all a myth. So much of it is simply common sense and by
learning lessons from past successes and failures.

Every day in our lives, we do things a certain way, the ways that we have learned work for us. We learned this through trial and error,
through experience.

Yet we still refuse to learn from some of the
most fundamental mistakes made in our past.

We still hold on to too much fear in those specters, rather than accept them as having happened and choose to learn and move forward.

Each day in your lives and as you build your businesses,
don’t be afraid to look into past failures and learn the lessons that are there waiting for you.

So you can move into that brighter future without the fear that you have gone wrong somewhere.

Let me assure you that every bit of
your past ‘failures’ have served you well.

Just look for the lessons, not the mistakes.
