Hello fellow entrepreneur,

Have you ever heard the term, fail forward or failing forward, meaning to view every life event you experience as feedback rather than as a win or loss.

Many people however, look at failures as losses instead of opportunities or learning experiences.

It doesn’t really matter what you are attempting to accomplish, weight loss, an entrepreneurial endeavour, school, dating. 

If  at first you don’t succeed. Try & try again. Learn from what you can from the experience  and move on. Don’t wallow in self pity.

Being a an avid reader of personal development, I have heard the life stories of people, like Abe Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and many others. One thing most of these people had in common was the ability to never give up, even after multiple failures. Click Here

It is said that Benjamin Franklin tried and failed thousands of times while trying to discover the proper element to use in the incandescent light bulb.

Abe Lincoln failed numerous times in his polictical journey, before finally being elected President of the United States Of America.

Although our nation, and the world, are presently experiencing some trying times in our economies, there still is an abundance of opportunity all around us.

The loss of a job is not a time to throw in the towel and give up.  Maybe that would be a great time to try something different.Maybe that would be a great time to try something you’ve always deep down inside you, wanted to do. You know, that thing only you can do?

Don’t get me wrong, and I know when you have employment it’s very easy to say, don’t give up. But I believe deep inside of all of us is an itch wanting us to do and experience more in our life, and sometimes a seeming failure or setback is just the kick in the butt we need to “GO FOR IT!”

All I am trying to do is to encourage others to look within themselves. You’d be surprised at what talents lye within each and everyone of us.

Many times after we have tried some endeavour and it did not go quite as good as we expected, we look at it as a failure, when instead, maybe, we could have looked at it as a learning experience.

I have failed, spent and loss so much money, so many times it hurts to even think about it, but, I refuse to give up on my dreams of success.

I try to look at my many failures as learning experiences, things that didn’t work and things I should not do to get a desired result.

So I encourage you, next time you try something and it does not quite work out as you expected or hoped, learn from it.

Chunk it up to the ole book of life’s experience.

Heck  maybe you could write a book and help to save some other poor soul from making the same mistakes.

So, failing isn’t necessarily all bad. Just fail forward til you reach your desired result, then teach others from want you learned from it.

See ya next post…
