8 WAYS TO AVOID FAILURE
Failure is Simply the Opportunity to Begin Again,
This Time More Intelligently.
– Henry Ford
Let me first tell you what’s failure.
It may be certainly defined differently for different people but one alike belief describes it as a situation when you realize there are people performing better than you and it’s time for you to work upon yourself. Failure is a chance to explore a certain activity for the second time, a chance to know about what was wrong in the process of practicing, a chance to find new pathways/opportunities leading ahead extrapolating.
Thus, these are a few of many points from my personal experiences that can be considered to resist failure.
- Know the game (or anything you’re going to enter).
Before entering the field of action know the game profoundly & exercise it beforehand which limits the areas of lacking practice.
- Be consistent towards your motive.
Your motive defines the process & end you go through. The more consistent you are towards your motive the more enjoyable is the process and so is the result gratifying.
Likewise, consistence with focus is inevitable –
When you focus towards what you aspire it is possible to do so. Everyone might achieve what they want but the person who stays focused on his motive wins the race first.
- Love the process.
Once you start loving the process, you never end practising even if you win or lose during it, and eventually practising multiple times never allows you to fall.
It’s necessary that we believe that we deserve what we want and it makes the path more fascinating to go through. Realize your own potential and stay confident towards whatever you do. Winning, Losing, Money, Rewards are just by-products, what matters is that you achieved what you sustained so long for.
- Never Rationalize.
Winners analyse their mistakes and work upon them. Losers find reasons to justify why they didn’t succeed.
Ego and Pride are major virtues which may not let you accept mistakes because of your previous achievements.
- Having Assumptions.
Assuming what could happen instead of analysing the conditions/ situations related to the future actions of the game leaves you biased towards doing what you assume and not what was to be followed according to your practise.
- Never Procrastinate.
Always perform your task as it is done for the last time.
Some of the factors for procrastination are over-confidence, lack of willingness to perform the process or practise, distractions, being not sure about the result, etc.
The best way to do something is by following the “5 Second Rule”.
- Never Live in past.
Having a memory of your past losses leads you towards losing the confidence in your capabilities. It’s important that we analyse the mistakes from the past and work towards improving them instead of worrying about if that could happen again.
Risk is a crucial factor that matters as taking risks makes a person test his capabilities and a person stands out of the crowd.
- Practise, Practise & Practise.
It is very correctly said that practise makes a man perfect and no one is perfect, there is always a scope of becoming better in your field, finding new opportunities, discovering new pathways of performing, developing new perspectives, etc.
Failure is just a temporary situation that gives a chance to prepare yourself to gain something permanent, be it a victory in any game, success in business, building fame or creating wealth.
As said by Robert Zeiber,
“Pain is temporary but Glory is Forever”
Always remember that in the game of life every next step is your destination and every destination lead to the further.
What matters is that we keep moving on until the game ends.
