Failure is something that we all have seen and maybe we have experienced. It’s possible that we could make some choices today that may seem ok, but down the road in a few months or years, can cause us problems and have a negative impact on our life.
This happens whether we like it or not and sometimes it’s hard to correct after it’s happened. We need to take the time to think about each and every thing we do to make sure we won’t pay for it in the long run. This only makes life worse when that happens.
Look at your life or your business and think about where you are at right now. How did you get to this point? What caused you to go down this path? Now think about how you could have done things differently so that you would have taken a different path. And maybe the path you are on today is okay.
Unfortunately, when you have experienced some sort of failure, you can't change the failure. What you can change is how you approach the future. I believe that things happen for a reason and we must understand when there is a lesson to be learned.
If you feel like the choices you've made in the past have caused you to fail, then what choices can you make today to move ahead or in a different direction? One of the hardest things in life is to set out in a new direction. It is possible to change directions so that you can be successful in your life and business.
Don't get me wrong. It's okay to fail. I love what Seth Godin says about failure, “Fail better, more often and fail faster than the other guy.” There are so many wonderful lessons to be learned if you look at failure as an education and not a whipping post.
Here is your Sales Nugget: What changes can you make today that could potentially take you in a different direction?
Would love to hear your story about the new direction you have taken recently.
