Dealing with Failure

Dealing with Failure


To me setbacks were you just gotta keep going if you believe in what you believe in You’ll learn from each one and you get better at what you do if you keep doing the same thing again That’s madness that never gets you anywhere but if you keep growing and learning and reflecting and ducking and weaving and all the metaphors of sport and Things like that. I mean you find a way I always maintain we only learnt anything from poor performances When you’re doing well, you just keep doing what you’re doing You don’t challenge yourself status quo is good im winning boats flying corporately you know we’re earning It’s only when you have a really really poor performance you go holy crap we’ve got to look at this Facing that dark period in the eye and moving forward and Convincing your people to continue to move forward because I believe nothing great and life comes easily, you know if you’re gonna be mountaineering You have to make peace with the fact that you’re gonna fail a lot And I’m really good at failing, you know, and then I got I got spectacularly good at failing You know because more often than not you got to invest all this time energy purpose resources into achieving Something that you’re not going to be successful achieving. We’re much better now There’s so much be more research now, on building resilience identifying what you need to get better at Feedback channels, you know Sometimes when someone tells you you’re not right for this role doesn’t mean you’re actually a bad person It just means your not right for this role.

The first step to success is failure I’ve always regarded failue as a detour and not a defeat one of the abilities of strength is to look yourself in the mirror and say look I haven’t succeeded in this but what have I learned from it? That is a powerful Individual force that hopefully you will bear in mind when you tackle your next issue or next project
