A lot of celebrity gurus have made it popular to say you should fail often so you know you’re going outside your comfort zone and are pushing yourself to grow.
That misses the entire point and they are misleading massive amounts of people.
Yes, you should aim to do things outside your comfort zone and push for growth daily. And try your best to succeed. The point is that you need to understand failing at this stage is ok because it’s your first step in a new level or direction. But not that you should be lowering your expectations or misdirecting your efforts because you think failing is the desired outcome.
When you fail, you can learn from what went wrong, but that doesn’t mean you should be trying to go wrong.
Are you holding yourself back from achieving success because you are afraid to fail? Or maybe because you’re not trying to succeed in the right way and too easily accepting failure?
It’s time to clean up this “failure mentality” and get back into a success mindset.
