From our experience, interpretation and perception of past events we can be left with some disempowering beliefs and emotions that affect our confidence. The fear of failure and not feeling good enough are two of the most prevalent perceptions that hold people back from realising their dreams and fulfilling their potential.
Confident people understand that so called ‘failures’ and ‘set backs’ are inevitable on the road to your goals, dreams and success. It’s all part of the process to have setbacks and challenges along the way.
The main difference is that they learn from these so called ‘failures’ and use the feedback to change their behaviour, strategies, tactics or to make better decisions to propel them forward.with momentum. As Richard Branson wisely says ‘Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again’.
I have spent years studying the mindsets of some of world’s most successful and confident people in many different fields. What I find most interesting is that most of them don’t even believe in the concept of failure. They perceive it more as a feedback mechanism and learning experience.
Another way at looking at this is that there is no such thing as failure, only feedback. The past is over, but you can take the wisdom, knowledge and experience it gives you to become person you choose to be. The trick is to intelligently use the feedback to keep moving forward, whilst in the process expanding, developing and growing as an individual
One of my favourite quotes is ‘When you change the way you look at things the things you look at change’ attributed to the Chinese Spiritual Philosopher Lao Tzu. I am sure you heard people say you can’t change the past, but I believe you can, at least in your imagination & perception.
