How to fail well…
Learning to fail well is definitely a skill worth learning.
As a health & personal development coach, I have the awesome privilege of walking alongside women as they create new possibilities for their lives.
While I can help a woman minimize failure and rebound more quickly I cannot protect her from failure entirely.
Nor would I want to.
Failure is where we learn about ourselves and our strategies. It is where all the growth happens!
If you aren’t failing, you aren’t learning
What does failure really mean?
Well… you get to decide that!
You could make it mean that there is something wrong with you and that you aren’t supposed to pursue the things on your heart.
You could use failure to inform your strategy, rework it, and move closer to finding out what DOES work.
How does one practice failing well?
=> You choose to make failure mean something that is useful to you. (in other words… What did you learn??)
=> You commit to acknowledging your worth, no matter how many times you have to get back up.
=> You stay curious about where you could do differently. (you can’t be curious & judgemental at the same time)
=> You treat yourself with compassion. (like you would a good friend or a child if they failed at something)
=> You pick yourself up and give it another go.
