How do we view our failures?

Or successIn our life we are making decisions that can be, if we are listening to our instincts, our inner voice speaking to us about the right decisions to success. But what exactly happens when we make the wrong decisions?

In our personal lives we are making decision that can affect not only ourselves but others.  Let’s look at marriages. If you marry someone, but are ignoring the “signs” the universe is showing you about this person, down the road you could part ways on good or bad terms. This experience could be viewed as a failure.  If you step back and look at the entire picture you would have seen the signs showing you this is a great relationship, but it is not the right person to marry. In some cases, you created a trauma that could stay with you. You could also, after you have moved on, continue making the same mistakes if you are not careful. Again, it is better to read the signs than run into what I call a “train wreck”.

In our professional lives we can manage projects that lead our companies into success or failure. Missing deadlines, losing bids, interviews or jobs. We can see ourselves as failures thinking we were not good enough. We need to look at the bigger picture before we can truly label ourselves in such matters. If you are leading a company or projects, you need to surround yourself with the right people.  Be open to ideas and feedback. The right feedback will bring you success. Let your instincts guide you as well, not your ego.

Regarding looking for new employment, be prepared for letter of offers or rejections. Keep in mind that being rejected after a job interview is because you have something better coming up. Keep your chin up!  I understand it is frustrating to receive negative answers. It also means this is not the right company or position for you. Have faith, the Universe will provide for you.

Visionary/inventors usually succeed because they persevere.  I like the story of the WD40 (Water Displacement 40th attempt). Norman Larsen was able to perfect the lubricant product on his 40th try. This is a great example, he could have stopped at his 10th attempt but he continued because he knew deep inside he would get it done.

We could also talk about Steve Jobs founder of Apple, he had an idea that started in a garage and now it is the most purchased smartphone in the world. Their technologies have been a breakthrough for other companies. Without Apple we would not have the technology we currently have from smartphone, tablets and computers as well.

What could be seen has a failure could really be a life lesson, or behind a failure something successful could be hidden. It’s all about perspective, how do we view what we call failures.

Take a step back and look at the bigger picture you may be surprised by what you see.
