It’s not the failures that define us so much as how we respond to them. In fact, it is what we choose to do right after we have failed that matters most.
Did you know…What You Focus On Expands. Yes, It’s true. If you focus on your failures you are more likely to have more failures.
When you focus on the things that are not working for you in the present, you are focusing on what you don’t want. By focusing on what you don’t want, you are fueling the 60,000-90,000 thoughts you have per day with unsupportive material.
As a society, we are conditioned, trained, socialized and taught to focus on the negatives. Just take a look at any news channel and you will notice that the entire delivery is focused on all of the negative things that are taking place around the world.
Instead of spending your time and energy thinking about the things you don’t want, or focusing on your past failures. Focus on what you do want. Focus on the success you hope to achieve and what you can do to make it happen.
What is it that I need? What do I really want? By when? With whom? What resources do I need in each area of my life to make it happen?
Instead of running a disaster film in your head, why not run a success story instead?
It’s not that you failed that matters, it’s that you get back up and try again. It’s not that you messed up, it’s that you’re able to learn from your mistakes, make the necessary improvements going forward, and focus on where you want to be.
Focus on what you want to happen in your life and create a phenomenal success story.
