Entrepreneur Inspiration: If You're Not Failing, You're Not Trying Hard Enough

As an entrepreneur, we can get into a comfort level with success: yes, we work from wherever we want to; yes, we make a lot of money; yes, we have freedoms that other jobs don't allow. Once we are living the life of the "New Rich," complacency can start to set in: this means, we get comfortable and stop  pushing the limits like we did when we first started out. Pushing the limits is what got us to ultra success, and allowed us to have the freedoms other people dream of having.

I write this to reiterate, "If you're not failing, you're not trying hard enough," it's that simple. I fail everyday, sometimes multiple times throughout the day. My brain is working, I'm open to new ideas, I'm listening to people, and in the end, I just want to offer the very best service for my clients and future prospects. I understand that if I sit back and enjoy the big life, my life isn't going to be big for long. One of my favorite quotes that I live by is, "You may be on the right track, but if you're standing still you're going to get run over." I say this to myself everyday, to make sure that I am moving forward.

Failing is not a bad thing, in fact, the faster you get to find your weaknesses and where you can improve, the faster you will get to success. The point is, you need to have the will to keep going when others quit. The low points in your life, the decisive moments when you can say fight or flight, these are the moments that will define your success in the long run. If you fail and hand it in, you're done, if you fail and decide you're going to use the experience to learn and do better next time, you have one.

Read some books on ultra successful entrepreneurs, they've all failed, and many times. The difference between them and someone else, is that they learned from their experiences, they used the lesson to catapult themselves forward. Here's another good one: two steps forward, one step back. You get it, you will always be ahead this way. Make the decision in your head, that no matter what happens, you are going to take away a positive experience from any situation, no matter what.

If you don't believe what I'm saying, give what I'm talking about a try, and see how your life changes. When people start coming up to you and saying, "I see a positive change in you, what's going on," you will know that you are on the right track. Turning negatives into positives takes time, don't be too rough on yourself in the beginning, just try your best and always look for the positive. The situation doesn't define you, the way you react does. Well, enough for now, I hope this helps you, have a great day.
