Give Yourself Permission to Fail

by | Sep 25, 2011

Most of us have a passion we have always wanted to pursue. Most of us often have ideas of things we want to try. But some simply won’t take the action necessary to start. There are many reasons for this…but the main one is fear of failure.

If you want to make significant changes in your life and live your passion, you must take action. “If it’s to be, it’s up to me.” You know this. But in taking action you must also understand that not every idea is going to work. Not every action will lead to success. But successful people understand and accept this. They understand that failure is an inevitable and necessary part of the equation.

Each time you take a step that doesn’t work you learn how to get where you need to go! But as Seth Godin says in his book “The Dip” you need to learn to fail fast! Once you understand that this idea or action is not going to work, don’t delay. Move onto the next idea. The sooner you do, the sooner you get to the idea that DOES work!

So GIVE yourself permission to fail. The sooner you do, the sooner you GIVE yourself permission to succeed!
