Falling and Failing are the only way to keep getting better
Your perceived failures and challenges can only make you bitter, if you allow them to. When you change the way you see challenges or roadblocks, the roadblocks and challenges will change. This shift, will unleash a powerful new tool for you, which will allow you to use challenges as the very catalyst that will help you to grow and get better.
I used to ride competitive moto X, when I was younger. I remember the day I ran excitedly up to my coach, blurting out that I must be getting really good, as I had ridden the entire day and had not fallen once. My coach looked at me and said “If you managed to ride the entire day without falling, then you did not push yourself. You just rode in your comfort zone. You will never get better unless you push the boundaries and test your limits” My coaches’ response was exactly the opposite of what I had expected. On reflection that evening I realised that he was right, I had spent the entire afternoon trying not to fall, instead of pushing the boundaries of what was possible for me. As long as I stayed inside my comfort zone, I was destined to be average and would never become the champion I wanted to be.
The same is true about our lives, as long as we just stay trapped in our comfort zone, day after day and we never stretch ourselves. We have destined ourselves, to just remain average and trapped in lives, which do not satisfy us. As you know you attract success by the person you become. As you become more, so you will over time attract more into your life. You will never become more, unless you stretch yourself outside your comfort zone and risk the possibility of failing.
It is not only OK to fail, but when viewed differently, failure is a crucial part of growing and improving. Each time you fail, you have simply discovered your current limits and within a short time, as you continue to stretch yourself, you will keep growing and getting better. This will see you gradually grow your level of skill, knowledge and ability to test new limits. This new perspective allows you to change the way you view setbacks, obstacles, rejection or challenges.
Instead of seeing challenges as something to avoid; rather see them as markers on your journey to super achievement. This shift will allow you to accept that any path to greatness will be filled with challenge. The greater the level of success you want to pursue the greater will be the obstacles and challenges. This shift will allow you to quickly shift the way you view challenges and give you a reason to appreciate and even celebrate each challenge you encounter. Each challenge, obstacle or setback is in reality just one step closer to the success you desire.
Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change. See each obstacle, challenge or setback that you encounter in future, as the very thing that will enlighten and embolden you. This new perspective will help you to continue growing, stretching yourself and will allow you to break through to the next level of success and achievement.
