Everybody wants to give us advice on how to succeed, but rarely do we get taught how to handle failure in business. And I think, this is where most entrepreneurs end up quitting. They’re quitting their business because they don’t know how to handle failure and they opt for the next non-business adventure.
And really, it’s a shame because failure isn’t the end. It is a new beginning and if you choose to frame it that way, you’re going to find success in any situation.
Successful entrepreneurs don’t succeed in spite of failing, but rather, they succeed because they have failed in their past ventures. Failing helped them learn what needed to be done better, what needed to be adjusted, and kept going.
And that’s the thing! A lot of times when we think we’re failing, but it’s mostly because we’re measuring ourselves against someone else’s success.
PSA: OTHER PEOPLE’S METRICS ARE IRRELEVANT TO YOU. THE MOST IMPORTANT MEASURING STICK TO USE IS YOUR OWN.
So, how can we fail better? How can we be mindful when faced with situations that make us want to give up completely?
