Do you know how often I hear when talking to friends or customers that they’ve had a run in with a tough colleague or your boss, read on…
Did you know that the most successful people are typically the ones who’ve failed the most. Yes that’s right failed the most. You see they believe in the old adage of try try again, and If at you don’t first succeed then change your approach until you succeed!

Well you’ve probably heard this before. Winners turn failure into feedback.

By interpreting our results that way you are most likely to benefit from failing and not letting it get the better of you. I reckon it’s all a matter of perspective and it’s your perception of events that matters.
One of the things I’ve been told over and over again, is that this is so much easier said than done. Especially when you’ve “gotten feedback” for the 10th time in a row from that boss or colleague you can’t stand, and nothing you do seems to work!

One of the things that I’ve found really helps our students turn failure into feedback, is keeping these 3 questions in mind.

The first question is “what is the positive in this situation and what’s the lesson I can learn from this?” I guess this is really two questions in one…

This is a great question to help you focus on turning failure into feedback, because it directs your thoughts and self-talk toward a positive outcome and is constructive, secondly it gets you thinking about the lesson, now I am not trying to preach here or anything but what’s the alternative?… Let’s take a look, If we allow our minds to react it will more often than not direct your thinking to what’s bad about the situation and in that case your mind will look for answers that compound the situation in terms of feedback to you that’s all bad in fact you’ll probably feel much worse! Seriously how’s that helpful {!firstname_fix}??…

I’d say clearly not!

Now the second question is “What can I do to solve this right now?”
The reason the question is phrased this specific way, is to convey a sense of urgency. We’ve noticed that some of our students think about solving the problems they are facing, but defer the problems until their next coaching call.
While we have coaches who are there specifically to help you solve your problems, you’re best served by using the coaches time more strategically – to help you work out your strategies, and for you to pick their brains on things that you can’t google. Most problems these days have solutions on Google or YouTube.

Finally, the third question. Now this question is one that you must remember NEVER to ask if you are serious about wanting to learn to turn failure into feedback. And that question is… “why me?” or any question that makes it personal, or about you.

Put these 3 questions in their proper place, and you’ll see how you start finding that you are effortlessly turning failure into feedback, and finding one success after another.

I learnt this when in my previous life as a Mortgage Broker for 18 years, I was used to finding finance solutions for my clients, but finding marketing solutions for myself was something that was completely new to me, like completely new!…
Once I learnt these strategies, there was no looking back.
Mindset issues are just one of the many things that we deal with, and is truly the biggest barrier to your success. In the words of the late great Jim Rohn “work harder on yourself than you do on your job.” that’s a doozy!
