How to Bounce Back From Past Failures

How to Bounce Back From Past Failures

It is not good enough to know the benefits of starting over and banishing the past. You also have to know how to go about starting the new journey. Many people desire to let go of the past and focus on the present. However, many fail because they lack the skills and information to do it right. This chapter will empower you with the knowledge and skills you need to start this new journey.

Treat The Past As A Lesson

According to psychologists, intelligence is the ability to learn from experience to make better decisions in the future. Therefore, whoever does not learn from the mistakes of the past cannot be referred to as an intelligent person. You should be able to draw out lessons from your experience to improve your decision-making. For example, if you have been in an abusive relationship before, you should remember those factors that made you surrender yourself to a dictator.

If it was because you depended on him or her for sustenance, then you should not enter another relationship until you have a job. You need to empower yourself and be valuable by making your own money. In the same way, if it was because you had low self-esteem, you need to work on that before entering a new relationship. You should be learning from what has happened to you in the past to avoid making the same mistakes...

Benefits of Forging Ahead


It’s not likely that you commit to something when you are not sure about what you stand to gain by doing it. Forgetting about the past to start over has numerous benefits. This chapter will explore some of them to give you the impetus to start making changes that will give you a new lease of life.

High Self-Esteem

Your self-esteem is a product of the way you see yourself. It will be low when you feel that you don’t deserve to be loved and treasured. Note that you cannot separate self-esteem from self-efficacy. Self-efficacy is the level of confidence you have in your ability to succeed in a task before you attempt it. It is vital that you have high self-efficacy because it makes others trust you to handle their projects on their behalf.

You need to earn the trust of people before you can be given the opportunity to prove yourself. Meanwhile, the only way you can convince them that you can do the job is when you have confidence in your ability to get the job done. Even when you have the qualifications for a job, you’ll still be doubted when you sound unsure about your chance of success in the task...

Why the Past Doesn’t Equal the Future

You’ll be stuck in the past when you think it has a vital role to play in your chances of future success. However, it’s not true that you cannot thrive again because of your mistakes and past failures. The future promises a lot if only you are willing to let go of the past. This chapter examines why the past doesn’t define the future of an individual.

The Past is a Closed Chapter

Treat your life like a book. Your experiences are previous chapters. The present moment is the chapter you are reading. In most cases, you don’t go back to a chapter you have read. You only flip back to those pages when you have something you didn’t get correctly. In some cases, you also flip back to that chapter when you find a similar concept in the current chapter. The implication of this is that you should only remember your past when you need to draw lessons from it.

You will not make progress if you remain stuck in a chapter of a book and refuse to read on. In fact, you might find better explanations regarding a particular concept you find difficult to understand in the subsequent chapters. Life is like that. Sometimes, you will not understand why some things happened the way they did until you forge ahead. For example, you might find out why your former boss treated you wrongly later. It could have been because of a jealous colleague....

Dangers of Getting Stuck in the Past

When you have refused to start over, you are endangering yourself in various ways. As earlier mentioned, it can make you lose sight of the opportunities around you. This chapter explores what you stand to lose when you’re stuck in the past.

Depression

According to the World Health Organization, depression is a leading psychological problem affecting millions of people around the world. Note that depression is different from the occasional mood swings we have because of an unpleasant event. Depression is more intense and persistent than that. When you are depressed, you will not want to talk to anyone. You will prefer to stay on your bed rather than go out to have social interactions. At that moment, everything in the world becomes colorless and tasteless to you.

Note that depression can become fatal in the long run. It can lead to suicidal ideation. In other words, depression can make you feel like taking your life. Meanwhile, you should never get to that point. There is nothing worth it in this world that should make you feel that taking your life is the best option. As long as you are still alive, you can still rewrite your story. No one is denying that you are hurt, but you cannot get stuck in the past. The price can be too costly. ..

The Past: It’s Gone Forever

In the words of Chuck Palahniuk, “Your past is just a story. And once you realize this, it has no power over you.” These words were spoken some years ago. However, they are still as potent and relevant as the first time they were spoken. If only many people realized this simple but extremely powerful truth, life would have been easier for them. We would have had more individuals that are less cranky and frustrated in the world.

Some people struggle to overcome their past demons. For instance, bad experience from their past relationships often hinder them from building robust and happy relationships in the future. They built a mental wall and find it difficult to trust another person or commit into another relationship. Letting past experiences interfere with our future is detrimental to our growth and mental wellbeing. This chapter will explore some vital things about the past you need to know.

Life is a Journey

This statement might sound like a cliché, but it’s not. You have to realize that life is a journey. In fact, it is an experience we are all having for the first and last time. In other words, no one has been to this world before that is now having another opportunity to live it all over again. Indeed, there are people who are experienced in this world. However, their experiences are all parts of their journey in life...

Embrace Your Dreams and Become an Action Taker

Embrace Your Dreams and Become an Action Taker

Maybe you have a dream. You want to create a successful online business. Or maybe you’ve already created your business, but you dream of obtaining a level that seems far off into the future.

Dreams are wonderful and should be nurtured. But if all you do is dream about what you want, the odds that it’ll become a reality aren’t that great. Instead, what you have to do is change from just dreaming to dreaming and doing.

It’s time to step away from the sidelines and put everything into motion. Don’t look at improbabilities or what looks impossible. If you do that, you won’t have the right perspective.

Anything is achievable with hard work, even if you can’t necessarily see a way right now. Action is what will make your dreams come true. Sometimes people think that they have to take giant steps and upend their entire life to show progress toward their goals.

That’s not true. Even small steps move you forward. And many small steps will equal up to major change. If you dream of writing an eBook for your business, just writing a few hundred words a day will allow you to complete that book over the course of a few weeks.

Consistent action steps make a difference in whatever you want to see happen. Decide what your goals are involving your dream life and break them down into bite size pieces. This gives you a timeline to bring everything to fruition.

You need to establish the month or year that you want to see your dream turn into a reality. By setting a timeline, you have days and weeks to work with. You’ll know what you need to accomplish to keep moving forward.

Having this keeps you accountable. Tune out what doesn’t help. Don’t listen to people who want to tell you all the reasons why your dream won’t happen. Just because they didn’t achieve it, it doesn’t mean you won’t.

Tune in to what does matter. Read motivating stories about people who had a dream and turned that dream into a reality. Learn what you don’t know if there’s an action step you need to take, but don’t have the skills yet.

Protect your mindset. Believe that your dreams are worthy and that they will come true regardless of any circumstances that might seem contrary to that. Having the right mindset will allow you to continue taking action when something doesn’t work out the way you want it to on the journey.

Find your people. Connect with people you can learn from, people who have a dream and are excited about living it out. This will help keep you motivated and focused on achieving everything you want in life.

 

Learn to Be Resilient in the Face of Failure

Learn to Be Resilient in the Face of Failure

One of the most common mistakes made - not only by entrepreneurs, but by people in general - is giving up in the face of failure. If you spend days, weeks, or even months planning out your roadmap to success as an entrepreneur, the moment something goes wrong, you’re going to panic.

You’ll start to have these wild thoughts about how everything isn’t going to work out and you’ll end up worse off than you started. However, you have to push these thoughts out and stand strong.

The only time that you can truly fail is when you give up entirely. Until then, they’re only setbacks. You should expect to have setbacks and roadblocks along your path to success.

It’s just something all entrepreneurs have to put up with. There are obviously different levels of severity when it comes to setbacks, but no matter what happens, you have to keep making forward progress if you want to succeed.

One thing you have to understand is that setbacks and failure are not always your fault. Sometimes, that’s just what happens. Even if you do nothing wrong, you can still encounter some resistance.

So be fully prepared to face that head on. In these particular situations, it can be extremely frustrating, because you may not have anything to actually learn from it, since it just happened to not work out.

Other times, your failures may be caused by one or many of your own personal mistakes. This should be seen not as a disgrace, but as a learning opportunity. If you look at what happened and what you did wrong, you should be able to understand what to do in the future by avoiding that same mistake.

This is actually how many people become successful to begin with - through failure and repetition, with adjustments made after each unsuccessful attempt. Being set back can have many negative mental repercussions, so it’s important for you to be mentally strong above all else.

If possible, you should work on that even during times when things are going well, by doing things like yoga and meditation to keep your mind strong and stable. If you’re unprepared for it when failure strikes, you’re going to be much worse off.

By preparing and anticipating failure along the way, you can significantly dampen the blow to your mental state that it will bring, allowing you to act fast and get yourself back on the right track - even stronger than ever before.

Be the Kind of Person Who Thrives with Every Challenge

Be the Kind of Person Who Thrives with Every Challenge

Obstacles are inevitable for entrepreneurs. You’ll encounter them no matter what kind of business you have. You really only have two choices when it comes to dealing with them.

Either you allow them to cause you to shrink back in fear and self-doubt, or you embrace them, refusing to allow them to intimidate you. Believe it or not, a successful business is one that welcomes obstacles.

Being an entrepreneur will come with many ups and downs emotionally because of hindrances. You might experience fear, disappointment, anger and more. Thriving with challenge means that you don’t allow your emotions to guide you.

You recognize the challenge for what it is - just part of doing business - and you pick yourself up and get right back to focusing on moving your business forward to the next step.

If you do some research, you’ll find that businesses that see success today once faced seemingly insurmountable challenges. The only thing they did differently than the businesses that folded up shop did was that they allowed those obstacles to fuel their determination rather than defeat it.

Challenges weed out the weak and less determined. They help those who dig in their heels and see challenges for the opportunities they can be become forged in the fire that these problems bring.

In the end, they come out stronger and better than before they encountered whatever they faced. You can become the kind of person who thrives through challenges by having a winning strategy.

Make sure that you have a group of go getters you can turn to when the setbacks surface. This might be other business owners that you reach out to or successful people that you read about and you can hold onto their advice while you’re going through your challenge.

When you’re struggling with an obstacle, hold onto the reason why you wanted to start your business to begin with. Reminding yourself of your why will help you stay determined to succeed no matter what.

Make sure that your mind is set on the right things. If negativity crops up, kick that thought out and cultivate positive thoughts. If you have a negative mindset toward obstacles, overhaul that thinking and become determined to find at least one good thing about the obstacles you face.

Remember that not every obstacle will leave you the winner. When a challenge feels like it’s driven you to rock bottom, decide if it’s time to create a fork in the road in order to go around it.

For example, you may have a product that you want to launch by a certain date, but one issue after another has developed and that launch date just isn’t going to happen. Go around that obstacle by setting another launch date and using the extended time to add more to your project so that it becomes even more profitable.

Allow Limitations to Be a Thing of the Past

Allow Limitations to Be a Thing of the Past

Starting your own business is a difficult task, and unless you’re extremely lucky, you’re going to run into situations where your limitations are inhibiting you from moving forward.

These limitations could be a variety of things, from a lack of money or time to a certain underdeveloped skillset. This can be frustrating, but there are ways for you to work around these limitations and get them out of your way.

You may not be carefully examining all of your options. For example, if you needed a particular program to do some of your work, but it cost too much for you to purchase, you would think that you’re stuck.

However, there are ways around this type of obstacle. There are often free versions of programs or free alternatives that you can use until you have the money together to afford the version you wanted.

For example, Photoshop can be a bit pricey, but there are free alternatives available that can do many of the same things. It may not be perfect, but it’s definitely better than nothing and it can provide you with a foundation to work off of.

When it comes to the limitation of time, you may have to start cutting out things in your life that you enjoy doing. Look carefully at your own schedule and how you allocate your time.

You might be spending a lot of free time watching TV or engaging in other activities, and you might have to temporarily cut those out in order to get the ball rolling. This doesn’t mean that you’ll never relax again, but in the early formative stages of a business, there’s not much room for recreation.

In fact, you might even have to lose out on some sleep if you want to really get things going. Finally, there’s the limitation of skill sets. You will no doubt encounter a situation in which you’re poorly equipped to deal with the task at hand due to a lack of certain skills.

There are many options available for learning new skills. You could ask somebody that you know who does have experience in that area who might be willing to share some of their knowledge.

You could also find free or paid online courses that you can learn from, but be sure to take the time to properly learn it. Many people will watch and online course and quickly apply the skills they just learned, only to promptly forget about it. In order to avoid these problems in the future, make sure you get a firm grasp on that information.

Adopt a Positive Outlook on Your Efforts and End Goals

Adopt a Positive Outlook on Your Efforts and End Goals

As an entrepreneur, you’ll find yourself dealing with many hardships. Getting your own business off the ground is no small task, and it comes with challenges and other hurdles that will make you doubt yourself and the possibility of achieving your own end goals.

If you start to face these challenges with a negative attitude, then you’re going to increase your chances of failure. However, by adopting a more positive outlook on what you’re doing, you will increase your chances of success.

Even if you think you can still work efficiently with a negative attitude, you’re not going to be doing as well as you think you are. It has been shown time and time again that those who are more positive in their outlooks and demeanors are more likely to be successful in their endeavors.

This is due in part to something known as a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you believe that your work won’t pan out the way you want it to, then you probably won’t put in as much effort, which inevitably leads to things not panning out.

You fail - not because you were right in your assumptions, but rather because you believed those assumptions, which caused you to change the way you work. Having a negative attitude about your own job will lead to a self-fulfilling prophecy.

If you have a startup company that you’re running, but you have serious doubts about it being successful and you don’t anticipate it lasting, then you’re certainly not going to give it your all.

Why would you give your all in something that you don’t believe in? By failing to give 100% of your effort, the startup ends up failing and you have proven yourself right. Instead, a positive outlook will motivate you through the toughest times, but you have to really believe in the positive outlook.

If you’re just phoning it in, when times get tough, you’re going to find yourself unable to move past the tougher obstacles that you’re faced with. When you truly believe that the project you’re working on or the business you’re starting will work out, then you won’t hesitate to put more effort into it.

You trust that it won’t be for nothing. Being positive will not only influence you to be better, but it may also influence others around you if you have people working for or with you, leading to an overall more productive situation.
