Fear of failure and failure itself causes many entrepreneurs and businessmen to stop reaching for their goals. Many don’t pursue what they need to accomplish because they are discouraged by previous failures. But this won’t help at all because in the end, the entrepreneur is the one who’s losing a lot from stopping in the face of failure. It is true that in the business world failure and unmet goals are inevitable, but what should set you apart from others who have met the same fate is your response. In the face of failure, one should fight and not flee, in other words tenacity.
Take a look at MRR for example, back in the days of 2006 you could count the amount of resell rights memberships on two hands, these days there are thousands, all offering the same products, same services, copying each other, using underhanded marketing tactics to name others, if I was fearful of this I would have closed MRR 6 months ago. I am human, these times are worrying with the market becoming over-saturated by the day, but what’s important is to stay focused and believe in what we are doing at MRR.
Failure is dilapidating and hurtful, but the hit shouldn’t be taken as the end. If you look closely enough at your failures, there are a lot of opportunities from where to pick up from. One should have the winner mindset in the face of failures. They shouldn’t stop you from achieving your goal.
The winner mindset is a state of mind that will absolutely help you take on challenges in the business world. A winner is one who thinks of his goals and keeps a clear view of them as he goes along the road. His goals keep him motivated, and he always sees them as something that is already there. He always thinks that he is successful, and he can do anything in his power to achieve what he wants.
However, it is important to consider that the winner mindset cannot be adapted by anybody overnight. It takes practice to think like a winner and succeed at it. It is important that you know yourself first. Introspection, wherein you try to examine yourself, is the first essential step. In introspection, you try to ask yourself important questions regarding your attitude. It is important that you answer them honestly. This will help you know yourself better and therefore, take a path that is right for you.
Introspection is not an easy task. It is quite difficult to introspect and then come up with a goal plan in one day. You can take it easy. It is enough to sit down and reflect for 20-30 minutes a day. You’ll see that this habit will lead you to better self-knowledge and a good goal plan. If there are set-backs and challenges, reflection and introspection can help you to better address problems because you take time to think about things and avoid rash actions that could lead to more damage.
Some important questions to ask when you perform introspection are about your personal work ethics, attitude, goals and personal wants.
Ask these questions and answer them honestry. You’ll be surprised on how much this will help you. Best of luck!
