Failure and success are part of our lives. But it is challenging to accept your failures and bring yourself above it. Failure is mere a cornerstone to your success as they can often point the right path to follow. Failures of all types must be handled in the best way possible. But when life brings you down, you have to learn to face your failures and fears to prepare for success. Not sure if you can do it or not?

Here are the best ways that can help you dust failures off yourself and get back to your routines easily:

1. Emotionally Motivating Environment

When you come across your fails, it is natural to feel hurt emotionally. 48% of people admit the negative impact of stress on the professional and personal life. Therefore, it is essential to come out of the emotional state and let yourself heal. No one is expecting you to recover right away.

Take your time and find an emotionally motivating environment that gives you the power to take over your failures. During this phase, you are required to concentrate on whatever good you can find around you. An emotionally healing environment can reduce your stress and make the healing process faster.

2. Plan Your Next Actions

The best way to reverse the negative impacts of failure is to move forward. Decide what you are going to do next. Your next actions should be productive enough to bring back the results that you wanted.  If the effects of failure are irreversible, try to find another way that can help you succeed. Even if you haven’t prepared for the possibilities of encountering failure, there is still time to plan your actions and your approach to managing the current situation. It’ll give your mind a diversion and help you think your way through the failure you have encountered.

“Losers quit when they fail. Winners fail until they succeed.” – Robert Kiyosaki

3. Turn Your Mistakes Into Your Lessons

Failures are the stepping stones to your success. Each failure you encounter brings you one step closer to success and, ultimately, points you the right way to success. It is crucial to learn from the mistakes you have made and never to repeat them. 

And failure holds the potential to teach you that. Mistakes that are responsible for your failure points towards the right way to complete a task. And this is what we need to succeed in our life. From now on, you do not require the direction of anyone as your mistakes are guiding you in the right way.

4. Mistakes Are Natural, Don’t Pity Them

We all make mistakes. Most of the successful entrepreneurs of today have learned many lessons from their failures and became successful later on. There is nothing wrong with failing or making mistakes. Without learning the right way to perform tasks, it is obvious to fail multiple times.

Therefore, remember to get yourself up from the pit of failures or mistakes and focus on what you are going to do next. Despite experiencing what failure feels like, do not fear to face it again. The way to success passes through multiple failures, and by learning the right way to perform operations, you can ensure you achieve the success that lasts long.

5. Find Inspiration

There are a plethora of motivators in today’s world who focus on encouraging personnel to bring out their best. Seek inspiration from them. The internet has brought the entire world on a common platform, and it has become easier than ever to contact anyone from any corner of the globe.

Search for a motivator who relates to your failures and current situation the most. Seek their support. You can also find motivation and inspiration around you from your friends and family. During your tough times, all you need is a shoulder to cry on as they can motivate you to move further and focus on the best aspects of your life.

6. Re-Evaluate and Plan for the Best

What went wrong? The answer to this question can help you evaluate your actions and find the possible mistakes you made that caused your failure. For example, a startup owner launching their ride-hailing business can assess their efforts that precipitated the unexpected failure of their business idea.

Whether they lacked in providing efficient services, or the application was not a fit, and many more can be the reason behind their failure. Similarly, you can find out the mistakes that occurred, or you did that contributed to your failure. This helps you understand the actions that attract failure and plan out your next steps accordingly to never let them happen again.

“Just because you fail once doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything.” – Marilyn Monroe

7. Expect the Best Results

Even after failing multiple times, you must keep your hopes high. The fear of failure often causes a trauma that doesn’t let a person get over the failures they receive for their best efforts. But this is the time when you need to visualize your success. Without fearing the failures, you must plan to succeed by keeping the lessons you have learned from your mistakes.

Expecting a tangible outcome for your efforts can help you keep your hopes high and alive. Visualize your success in your mind and plan for the actions you find are suitable for achieving it. The best way to fight your failures is by improving on the efforts and facing it head-on.

Do not let failures affect your self-esteem. Keep your morals high, and do not lose self-confidence. By learning how to overcome these tough situations, you can achieve success and keep your failures at bay. A positive environment, motivators, and the ability to learn from your failures can help you reach the peak of success.

Motivation is something we all strive to have, but can also be one of those feelings that’s hard to keep. Whether we’re attempting to reach a new fitness goal or trying to stay motivated in our role at work, sometimes that motivation just isn’t there. You feel motivated for a while – you’ll listen to podcasts, read books, keep yourself accountable – but then it’s lost. You feel so much energy at the start, then feel yourself slowly losing that inspiration. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. (more…)

8 Things You Can Do Right Now to Get Your Motivation Back

Published

Welcome to our new normal. A time in our lives that a year ago we certainly didn’t see coming that most of us probably wouldn’t have chosen for ourselves; but here we are. As the days away from each other carry on and more and more bad news comes our way, it’s easy to lose your motivation and waste energy doing things that aren’t helpful like worrying and fighting with people on the internet instead.

Nearly half of Americans report the coronavirus crisis is harming their mental health, according to the Washington Post. While many of us had routines set up to deal with stress in the past, the stress we are facing during this time is unlike anything we’ve experienced before. It’s easy to find yourself in a downward spiral, and that’s the most challenging time to stop the momentum and turn things around. If that’s the case, keep it simple and start to reach for little things to help you feel better and climb your way out.

Here’s a reminder of a few simple things you can do right now to start getting positive momentum going your way:

1. Find someone who was in a similar place and made it to the other side

Whether you’ve been unmotivated to workout, eat healthy, make sales calls or simply do anything, you can find someone who has been there and made it to the other side. Look up some great TED talks, go on YouTube and look up people that motivate you, google them to find their websites. There are short speeches and much longer talks all over the internet, you just need to find someone who you relate to that speaks to you.

2. Do something that you love

When we’re unmotivated, it’s easy to get out of the habit of doing what we love. Sometimes just getting out of bed or away from the tv feels like a chore. Think back to a time in your life when you felt great – what were you doing? What do you absolutely love to do that if you had the time, you would do all day and not realize any time had passed at all? 

Figure out a way to do whatever that is, or a modified version of it if it is something that you aren’t able to do at the present time. Spending time doing what you love will get your mind off of anything that is wrong and allow you to find inspiration.

“If something is important enough, even if the odds are stacked against you, you should still do it.” – Elon Musk

3. Don’t overcomplicate it

Keep it simple. When we’re stuck in a rut, we’ll give ourselves every excuse to not do something. Say you’ve gained some weight; you might tell yourself you need to find the perfect trainer and wait until you have time to cook your meals from scratch each night before you do anything else. Stop trying to overcomplicate it and keep it simple by finding one thing you can do right now, however small that may be. You don’t have to wait until the timing is perfect and the stars align for you to start moving in the direction you want to go.  

4. Get up and get moving

This is probably the last thing you want to do right now, but once you are up and moving, your blood will start flowing. The hardest part is getting started. Day one, get up and do anything to get moving. This is the hardest day if you haven’t in a while because getting up is really the hardest part. Day two, do a little more. Once you start, you’ll build momentum and get back in the habit.

5. Reset your focus

It’s so easy for worry to set in and for our minds to wander to places of what we can’t control. This is not motivating or helpful and we always have a choice to redirect our attention. There is always something we can do right where we are, so bring your focus to the solution instead of the problem and figure out the next step of what you can do. 

One step at a time. Step one, take your attention away from what you can’t control and what you can’t do. Step two, ask yourself questions like “What can I do?” and see what comes to mind. Follow through with the answers you find.

6. Listen to your favorite music

Not much can lift our spirits and put us into a positive vibration more than our favorite music. Feel free to sing along. Find a song that pumps you up and make that your theme song. Put it on anytime you feel down or unmotivated.

7. Expand your knowledge

“In times of change, the learners will inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.” Quote by Eric Hoffer. In times of change, there is great loss but also great opportunity. Continually learning opens you to new opportunities and leads you to paths you may not have otherwise found.  

“Work like there is someone working twenty four hours a day to take it away from you.” – Mark Cuban

8. Meditate

If you’re already a meditator and got away from it, take some time to come back to it. If you’ve never tried, it can be as easy as setting a timer for five minutes (or less, feel free to start with one or two minutes) and focusing on your breath. Listen to the inhalations and exhalations. Silently say to yourself “in” as you inhale and “out” as you exhale. Even taking a few minutes to do this can help you to calm down and allow your mind to refocus.

When we’re unmotivated, our momentum starts moving in the other direction. Slow down that momentum by trying one of the ideas above. Once you’ve slowed down the momentum, get it moving in the right direction and you’ll be well on your way.

How many times have you heard the questions: “What drives you” or “What excites you?” These questions may come from well-meaning people but they make one problematic assumption – Our motivation depends on something external. As a result, instead of actively building structures that motivate, we find ourselves aimlessly looking for some outside factors that will motivate us. Instead of asking: “What motivates me?” We should be asking, what am I doing to remain motivated? The answer to this question lies in the doing, not motivation itself. (more…)
