Have you had your heart broken because your vision didn’t come out the way you imagined? Have you had your heart broken because of a massive failure? Think about it, you have worked so hard for so long and invested so much time, money, and energy just to come to complete failure. 

The feeling of being worthless, a failure, betrayed, and depressed all hitting you in one emotion sucks. It felt like I was going to be there forever when I experienced it. Being an entrepreneur sure has it’s ups and downs, but if you can’t learn from your failures, you will continue to have the same heartbreak experience. That’s what I did, I kept going and going, ignoring the stop signs and letting myself run into a huge hole. 

Wanting to rise to the next level only to fall infinite levels deep. Even though we are in a pandemic, there is a huge benefit from it for someone who experienced failure. What I will share with you are 3 pandemic lessons I have learned to help overcome the heartbreaks and achieve success.

1. Patch Up & Do Your Research

You may have friends that are very knowledgable in different areas of business and life. You might be the type of person that takes advice without doing your own research and swinging for the fences. NEWS FLASH! Always do your research and know your numbers no matter what anyone says. If it’s family giving you advice, DO YOUR RESEARCH ANYWAY! If it’s close friends giving you advice, DO YOUR RESEARCH ANYWAY! If it’s your mentor giving you advice, DO YOUR RESEARCH ANYWAY! 

Just going based off of he said she said, will bring you so many surprises. Good and bad. For anyone that is extroverted and impatient, spending time with due diligence is a lot better than doing little work and hoping for the best. Success requires you to take time and do your due diligence. This is something that dawned on me because when I began quarantine, I realized how much I had to learn. 

2. Take Care Of Your Mental Health 

Are you working out? Are you spending time learning every day about yourself? I can’t stress enough that you should be taking care of your mental health. Working out 3-5 days a week not only helps your body become great, but it helps your mind become greater. Meditating clears your mind and gives you the answers you seek. When you can take better care of yourself, people will perceive you differently. Just imagine how far you can go when you take care of yourself daily inside and out. 

This was a wakeup call because when I looked at myself in the mirror, I realized that I have become completely lost and I had little to no motivation to better myself mentally and physically. But, thanks to the lockdown at the beginning of the pandemic, I’ve learned that to achieve success, you must take care of your mental health. No matter how you feel or what time it is, you take care of your mental health.

3. Start Building Genuine Relationships

Great things happen when you can take better care of yourself. Greater things happen when you can start building genuine relationships with others. Usually in this world of entrepreneurship, there are not that many people that want to build genuine relationships. It’s typically people handing out business cards and just selling their business. 

I’ve learned that to get what you want, you must help others get what they want and you do that with genuine relationship building. Here’s a mind hack that can help guide you to know what you want because when you know what you want, you know who you want to connect with. 

Write a list of things you enjoy doing. Write a list of all the goals you want to accomplish (even the little ones). Write down all of the things you have accomplished in life. When you can connect the list of things you enjoy and the list of goals you want to accomplish, there’s clarity. When you look at the things you accomplished in life, there’s motivation to get things done. The first time I did this, massive success started happening bit by bit and it was all because I decided to start building genuine relationships.

In conclusion, this pandemic may suck for you, but there is beauty behind it, and one of the greatest things about it is learning from your failures. Wherever you are in your life, just know that failure is only temporary and what you do with it can really bring out the best in you. If you are still heartbroken because your business went down to the ground, then the great thing is you can get back up and become smarter about your business. You can become more successful than you already are. You can become one of the greatest come up stories of all time.

For those of us who are drawn to the pursuit of success, it’s common to look forward to the ego-boost that comes when we achieve our goals and other people notice. None of us are immune to that good feeling that comes when others admire the work we’ve done. The problem with striving for that ego-boost is that a lack of humility often gets in the way of success.

You know that life is short, yet too many days don’t reflect that fact. Success doesn’t have to be something you see happening for other people. Putting in the work to become the best version of yourself is not a smooth path, and that’s okay. In a Taylor Swift song, there’s a line that says, “people throw rocks at things that shine.” As you boldly step into your power and claim your dream life, you will undoubtedly experience resistance.

I get asked all the time: “Debora is it safe to be vulnerable and share my story? Will it diminish my credibility?” Vulnerability is one of the most potent ways to connect to your audience deeply. I want to make a distinction though. Vulnerability is not about sharing your story only, but about how you share it and how much or little you refer to the emotions and feelings involved in the story. (more…)
