??????? What am I doing? I work and I work but nothing seems to change. Even when I get a moment of success, I go back into the zone of failure. Have you ever had this feeling before or are you currently feeling this way? If so, I am here to tell you that you are exactly where you need to be.
“Find flow from failures.” Say that you’re an owner of a business and the business is doing good. You’re making some sales and you have a few people who like your products. One day you decide that you want to take your business to the next level. You feel that you can be as big as Adidas, Instagram, and Facebook, so you begin to get to work.
Weeks go by and you are not having, as much success as you thought you would be having. You say to yourself “when am I going to get out of this zone of failure?” You continue to use the same strategy you’ve been using and you continue to get the same results.
You take a moment to look at that strategy and you make some changes. More weeks go by and something magical happens. New customers are starting to notice your business and the products you have. You begin to gain a bigger following and consumers are buying your products at a faster rate than before. You decide to take this same strategy and apply it to other social media outlets. Now you’re cookin. You’re beginning to see the growth that you envisioned and you finally found your flow.
Because of those failures in the beginning, you were able to make a change to what you were doing. That change created a flow that produced the success you wanted. It’s important that you fail, so that you know what is working and what’s not working. It is also important that you do something about it. If you were to succeed here and there, you would never know how to get better. If you were to remain focused on the failures and not a solution, you would be holding yourself back. Embrace those failures and let them help you find your flow.
