You're going to fail. There's no way around it.

But what if we eliminated the word "failure" from our vocabulary altogether?

What would it be like to go after something knowing you couldn’t fail no matter what?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Here’s the thing... failure, as we’ve been brought up to understand it, is an illusion.

It doesn’t exist.⠀⠀⠀

“Do it right the first time, or don’t do it at all”

Anyone else hear that repeatedly growing up?

The generation before us was taught that by the generation before them. And, while there is some truth to it (go after it with everything you’ve got the first time you try) there is so much more left unsaid.

This phrase has unfortunately bred a mindset so crippled by the idea of failure that many of us never even try in the first place.

The way to shift your mindset and eliminate the idea of failure:

1. Acknowledge it didn’t go how you wanted

2. Learn from it

3. Adjust for the next time

It really is that simple.

“Failure” doesn’t exist. It’s a learning experience bringing you to the next level of understanding.
