Some Say The Definition Of Insanity Is Doing The Same Thing Over And Over Again And Expecting Different Results.
Each rendition is a new failure and each time we repeat that same failure, we step a little closer to insanity. The sane thing to do would be to take a step back, reassess the problem and come at it from a new angle, with new techniques to combat the old failures. Each time we fail it give us an incredibly valuable opportunity to learn and grow. And to make progress. It’s a true failure and a shame if we’re not utilizing this for our benefit.
Every time we’re dealt a poor hand or we think the world is against us, we’re failing to see the forest through the trees. We are the ones who put ourselves in these situations, we are the ones to get ourselves out. And if we feel stuck, it’s because we keep doing the same damn thing that got us there in the first place. Change course, and try a new tact. If you are constantly in the same dead end relationships, businesses, career, life path, if you constantly end up back where you started. You are not utilizing failure, you are simply repeating it.
The only way to break the cycle is to scrap the playbook you’ve been using and developing a completely new one. And you have to discover for yourself what that looks like. Ask yourself what does a healthy relationship look like and how do those that have it find it? What does a successful business look like and how did those that achieved it carry themselves? What are the happiest people doing in life and how can I add those action to mine. And when you find your answer, throw away what wasn’t working and adopt these new patterns and habits.
Look, we will all fail, a lot, but if were not looking at those failures and finding new ways to improve upon them we’re throwing away one of the all time greatest gifts to ever be bestowed upon us. Failure is a gift, learn from it, grow out of it, utilize it.
