If You're Going to Fail, Fail Spectacularly

Fri, 11/09/2012 - 4:26pm | by monicadear

It's one thing to have a series of little failures along the way -- you can usually deal with a missed appointment, a broken friendship, a bounced check, or a small flaw.

It's quite another thing entirely to have a spectacular failure -- something that messes up your whole life and shakes up your world view, makes you reassess your relationships, causes upheaval in your financial situation, or cracks open your understanding can actually be good for you, in the long run.

Fail spectacularly:

Make a big mistake -- you'll learn so much more from making a big mistake.

Flame out - when you realize you've hit rock-bottom you understand you can make your way back to the top.

Move your dwelling-place -- transferring to another state, or even another country, opens up any blocked feng shui and re-channels your awareness much more than clearing your closet clutter.

Take a wild leap. You might score big, or you might fail, but you will at least have some more experience.

Try a new endeavor and committ to making it succeed. If you start a new business or pickup a small franchise, you'll have a place where you can go work. You can never work enough on your own business, so make sure it's something you love.

Burn bridges. Are there toxic people in your life? It's time to get rid of them and their negative influence. You deserve more support, love, abundance, and gratitude - choose that direction and get rid of the failed friendships.

Note that these tips are only for people who want to become super-successful. The most successful women are the ones who have had the most failures. If every failure is a chance to learn and grow, then every big failure is a chance to learn to the nth degree.
