What if the difference between winning and losing was simply a matter of where YOU drew the finish line. Many decades ago, before I started on my entrepreneurial journey, I was interviewing for a position with a large tech company. Guess what? Have you ever failed at anything? What you see on my is the end result of many failures, a series of finish lines that were crossed after uncountable stumbles and falls.
Success all too often looks like a series of well calculated moves on a chess board where strategy, planning, and execution all carve out a wonderfully well though out path from start to finish. So why is it so hard to practice? Because we equate the rate of failure to a reduction in the rate of success.
Stop and think about that for a minute. It makes perfect sense, right? The more you fail the less you succeed. That the most successful people I know are the ones who are undaunted by failure, who consistently blast through it, learn their lessons, and plow forward, bruised but undaunted, discouraged but not defeated.
Take your pick from Jobs to Oprah, Disney to Spielberg, Rowling to Lincoln—all would have been gloriously unknown failures had they not simply kept on trying.
So, how do you grab those bootstraps and haul yourself back up when life smacks you down? Here are five ways to make sure you keep moving towards the finish line. The biggest mistake you can make is to believe that any failure defines you. No failure is an end point until you decide it is. The only failure is not getting back up and trying again.
Channel your frustration and your energy into moving forward not dwelling in self loathing. Success is not an existential reality. Define it on your own terms and do not be afraid to recreate you definition when it no longer serves you. They could no longer walk or use their arms, but they could still choose to wallow and whine or win. I have always been inspired by how some simply made the choice daily not to be defeated.
It is your choice. Yes, this one rubs every fiber of your being the wrong way. The last thing we want to do when we fail is fail again. Use it to motivate, inspire, and teach you—those three form the bedrock of success, and failure is their greatest source. So, do you want to win?
Simply refuse to draw the finish line until you have failed often enough to succeed.
