#10rulesforus 2. Fail, learn, move forward!

In an organisation full of self-confessed OCD's (yes yes I know, CDO's), competitive personalities, high (and over) achievers... we all take it really personally when failure happens.

"Failure stings. It doesn’t feel good. It’s tough. It’s humbling. It can feel unfair. It can have everything to do with us; it can have nothing to do with us." So how do you get beyond failure, and how do you use failure to succeed?

- Acknowledge your failure. Be objective about how you failed and why, instead of getting stuck on the feeling.

- Anticipate failure. Plan ahead. Be intuitive to situations, know as much as possible about your tasks and projects and the environment you work in. Catch your failures before they happen.

- Adapt to change. Face it - the world changes daily...hourly. It's a new world. Don't fail at the same things. Adapt, go with what works. Try the things that may seem daunting, challenging, impossible.

- Accept some degree of failure, because it's inevitable. It's how you move forward that counts. Failure is a stepping stone to success.

- Rather try and fail, than do nothing at all. The enemy of success is the fear of failure.

- Don't allow yourself to lower your standards in order to avoid failing. Taking failure personally, is failing all over again.

Have a really super week
