Wanna Grow Your Paycheck? Grow Your SKILLS!
The marketplace pays for value and the primary thing determining your value is your skill set. So, ask yourself: “What can I do to increase my value at work today?”
Even the most successful people fail! We can learn SO many lessons from our failures! And your success comes from what you CHOOSE to do with that knowledge NEXT!
I’m so excited we get the chance to talk again this morning! I’ve been learning so much from Dani lately, and today I’m sharing just a little bit of it with you!
Today we’re talking about FAILURE! (I know, you think I’m a little crazy for being this excited about failure… but stick with me!)
I’m picking up right where I left off yesterday, so if you missed my message, take a few minutes to read it now, before going on!
So, what are the “lessons” you and I can learn from failure? Well, here’s what I learned from my big “flop”:
If you expect yourself to be 100% ON, 100% of the time, you’re setting yourself up for major disappointment and frustration. Don’t do that to yourself! Even the most successful people fail! (Dani will be the FIRST to remind you: “The road to success is paved with failures!”) And it’s true!
So, you can either… accept it, and not be shocked or caught off-guard when failures happen, or pretend you’re the exception, and then become so discouraged when you have an “off” day and just quit. So, what exactly DOES bring success? What you choose to do NEXT!
What DOES determine who you are? Well, first of all, your Father in heaven determines WHO you are. And guess what? He has called YOU to be a champion! He has given YOU everything you need to become outrageously successful. He created YOU for a purpose. He says YOU have a calling and a destiny on your life, and He is calling you OUT of the dry, broken, deserted places and INTO what He has planned for you, since before the beginning of time!
That, my friend, is who YOU are! And just because you may fail, it does NOT make you a failure.
The bottom line is, even when you FAIL one day, you can still NAIL it the next day. Failure is NOT FINAL, and it doesn’t have to take you out of the game!
Don’t be surprised or caught off-guard by failure. Instead, CHOOSE to get back up and jump right back on track! CHOOSE to learn from your mistakes and failures! CHOOSE to rule your thoughts and reactions, instead of allowing them to rule you! CHOOSE to continue on the journey to success, DESPITE your failures!
We can learn SO many lessons from our failures!
Ya know, I am so grateful to have had Dani’s voice in my ear for the last six years, whether it’s been on her radio show, here in The Daily Fix or even in person at First Steps To Success. It is so inspiring to hear someone as successful as Dani, get up and not only share her successes, but also her failures – all for the purpose of helping others learn from her mistakes!
Dani doesn’t mope and complain and give up every time she encounters a challenge or has an “off” day… or even a total failure! She constantly looks for lessons she can learn from each situation!
So, I encourage you to do the same, in whatever you’re working toward, whatever challenge you’re facing or whatever failure you’ve just had. Ask yourself, “What can I learn from this?”
I’d love to know what lessons you have learned from your own failures. How have your mistakes and failures shaped your journey of success? How do you respond to failure? Do you get right back on track, or do you give up? Leave me your comments below! (I can’t wait to read them!)
