“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old,
but on building the new.”
We’ve all encountered “failures”. Or have we? Perhaps you should look at failure as another opportunity to find success. Don’t look at a setback as a stumbling block. Instead, look at it as a stepping stone. When you encounter a setback to your goal, look at it as a learning experience rather than failure. Then, after you’ve problem-solved, regrouped your resources, hired the right person, you’ll realize that the setback was a problem that was a teaching tool in disguise. When we don’t get the job, that promotion we desire, or the sales account we were counting on, we should look at what we can learn from the experience. We should look at how we can grow from our mistakes so that we don’t repeat negative patterns. When we change our mindset about the mistakes we make, a roadblock becomes a step up to something better.
