Manufacture Your Day by REFRAMING THE WORD FAILURE
Make sure to watch my video by clicking the link below:
I know so many people who are afraid to fail.
Many people are actually so afraid that they don’t even get started, and that’s how people get in a rut and stay in a rut without using their ability to get things done.
Would you like to know a huge mental game changer?
There is no failure, only feedback.
This means the results in your personal and in your professional life provide feedback about what works and what doesn’t.
This insight comes from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programing) and it is just such an incredible way to reframe the word failure. Reframing means that you put a word, situation or person in a “new frame”. It means shining a different light on it, or looking at it from a different perspective.
In the manufacturing industry the words “fail” and “failure” are overused. If you don’t get the results you would like to see, it’s time to do something different.
Ask yourself these questions:
- What emotional impact does the word “failure” have?
- Who wants to feel like a failure?
- Doesn’t failure mean that we have stopped trying?
- If people are afraid to fail, how can they be creative and innovative?
Looking for feedback is awesome. Talking about failure not so much.
Here are 3 things that you should take into consideration:
1. Shift Your Perspective:
If you don’t get the expected results, change your approach or the way you look at things.
2. Put People First:
Resistance from a person or from a team means that there is not enough human connection (lack of rapport).
3. Learn the Lesson:
Make the time to find out what’s missing to get to the next level or you will have to do it over and over again. In other words: If you don’t pass the test, you will repeat the lesson. It’s as simple as that.
Repeat after me:
“There is no Failure. There is only Feedback.”
Yes!!! You’re getting warmer.
Food for Thought:
How do you take responsibility when things go wrong? Do you make sure to learn something from it?
