“A person who never made a mistake, never tried anything new.” – Albert Einstein
As corporate entrepreneurs, we know that we must always try new things and therefore, we must also fail or we will never find success!
Yes! If you understand how to learn from failure…if you try to hide your failure or pass the blame on to someone else, then failure will not help you in the future!
The following can be used with any failure, large or small. You can use as many or as few as you feel comfortable, however, the more you use the more you will learn from your failure.
If you are trying new things, you are using your imagination and your corporate entrepreneurial spirit. We know that ideas are a dime a dozen. We know that when an idea comes to us we begin to talk about it. This is all fine and well, but only when an idea is put into action can we truly see its value. Sometimes the value is not what we thought it would be, however, at least we took action.
The real success in business is the journey of doing something. So if you fail, it means you are on the journey and therefore you are already successful!
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.“Winston Churchill
