Why is talking about our failures so difficult? 🤔 Is it us? It is peer pressure? Media?
I think it’s because we tend to define ourselves and others by the final outcomes. 🏷️ By the pictures we take. 🤳 By the awards we have. By the image we pass. 🌟By the number of clients, the amount of money, etc. 💰
We apply this same principle to failure. But we shouldn’t.
Accepting failure is good. Failure is part of the learning process.
Recovering from it, it’s never easy – but denial 🙈 and ignorance 🙊 certainly won’t get us anywhere. Instead, we should embrace our failures. 💪 Talk about it no matter the nature, severness or cause. 🗣️ We need to be honest. With others, and especially ourselves.
You know how sometimes you get stuff out of your chest just by speaking with someone 🗣️ about your problems and afterwards you go – “Man, I feel better now”. 😌
That applies here as well. By speaking 🎤 about failure, we articulate our thoughts and emotions about it. 🎛️ This helps us externalise and rationalise failure.
We become self-aware and more in control. 😇 We build up our critical thinking and willpower. 🔝
And besides that, we also learn something even greater alongside this process – resilience. 😉
