After listening to the Money call yesterday, I began to think about failure. Failure in business. Weight loss. Nail biting. Whatever the goal is.
Until now, I think I boxed the term failure in to mean something catastrophic.
Failure in business = a business going bankrupt / crashing and burning so to speak
failure in weightloss = morbid obesity or yo-yo’ing for life
Because of that belief, I realize when asked to do “epic fails” or “what have I failed at today?” I would have a block. Like, nothing catastrophic has happened.
So, I looked it up. Saw a wide array of definitions.
Arrived at this one: Failure is lack of a desired outcome.
OH. Well, in that case. I got this. I can handle failure. It’s not a tsunami! It’s when I took action to get X, but got Y instead.
Just wanted to share!
I realize when failure isn’t a catastrophe. It’s not being homeless on the street. It’s just a lack of a desired outcome. I can fail. I can keep taking action. Fall. Get back up.
