Failure - Time To Own It!

Failure is one of those things that uniquely connects us all. We have all had some type of failure in our lives at one point or another.

Relationships, Health, Finances, Career, etc. etc. etc. Unfortunately, it is just part of life and whether you want to acknowledge it or not, failure has no bias when it comes to setting in.

Have you wondered why some people are able to fail several times over without letting it really affect them? I wonder if they’re genetically engineered to handle the failure better than others? Just google overcoming failure and you get a ton of stories on people who have done amazing things after they have failed at several others.

Have you ever looked at failure from a standpoint of testing you? Let’s say you failed at getting the job of your dreams. What are you going to do about it? Are you going to accept the failure and not try again or are you going to take that failure and use it to your advantage? It is not a natural thing to embrace failure but those who learn how to do it set themselves up for future success.

What holds up the majority of people from thinking that way? I would suggest that probably 98% of those people who don’t get that dream job, say fuck this, pack up and dream about what could have been.

That 2% though? They look at the failure as a way to get back. They hold on to it as a stepping stone to the next thing. They use the previous failure to succeed at their next venture and continue that cycle all the way to their end goal.

I myself? Well, it has taken me years of failing at all kinds of shit to get to the point where I am today (a failure embracer). Time has taught me that in order to try and live out your dreams, you will have to fail. Actually, over and over and over again. But it is in those fails that you start to understand who you are, what you are capable of and how you really can handle situations.

Here’s a recent example that I have been living for the past two years now. In November of 2019, I finally made up my mind that I was going to become an “online entrepreneur”. At the time, I had no idea what the fuck that even meant, but was hell bent on going through the pain and suffering that was going to have to be involved to learn.

Some two years later, I am finally to a spot where I feel like I know what is and what isn’t when it comes to operating in the digital world. I know what my plan of attack finally is and where I can make more money. I know what content I want to create, need to create and have a knack for creating. But most importantly? I know more god damn things that you shouldn’t do to become an online entrepreneur than you can shake a stick at.

And do you know how I know that? Because I have failed miserably at a whole bunch of stuff in the last 24 months. So much, that most people in my shoes (that 98%) probably would have packed up and said “nah this isn’t for me”. To be honest, I have dug in more when I have miscued, spent wrong and failed to find my audience.

I have actually found myself creating new content with my previous failure as the basis for improving upon my thought. Don’t get sucked in to what you didn’t make happen, rather get tuned into what you are going to make happen.

Do you know what I really believe has helped me the most over the past 2 years? It has been the fact that I have regularly exercised on a weekly basis. It has allowed me to reset my mind, time and time again which has had great impacts on my progress.

The exercise has allowed me to forget about unsuccessful blunders, campaigns, wrong packages, bad marketing and the list goes on.

I’m telling you right now, the greatest thing you can do when you fail, is exercise the demons out of your body. Maybe it is because I fail a lot or maybe it is because I try to accomplish too many things or maybe it is because at the age of 44, I have just learned to embrace my fuck ups.

Whatever the reason or maybe even despite the reason, I just love pounding the failures out of my body.

Like if someone were 10 times as big as you came strolling by and picked you up by your feet and shook the shit out of you. When you were finally put down (or how about dropped) you would be completely mentally and physically exerted. Do you know what is so great about that? What you were carrying with you before the physical action (the failure) has been washed clean by the fatigue you just endured.

It is such a simple concept and I am writing this to implore you do the same. Actually, I think I am asking you to become addicted to burning off the bad mojo with 15 to 25 minutes of body burning, soul touching, mind bending exercises.

Here is a platform that can help you do that very thing – Fitness Made Easy!

If you aren’t failing, you aren’t trying. And if you aren’t trying, well then you are simply failing to understand the opportunities that are in front of you or that you are capable of going after. Get back on the horse and take down your next goal!
