The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.
Have you ever seen the guy or girl that you know for a fact has average IQ yet they are where you want to be?
They are totally dominating whatever it is they are doing and producing exceptional results.
You know what I mean.
The difference between you and them is how you see failure and deal with it.
Whether you possess the ability to look beyond the failure and keep achieving.
The difference is in the mindset you possess in comparison to the mindset they possess.
From a very young age starting with the traditional education system we are trained for success but not failure.
We are trained that at all costs we must get good grades and not make any mistakes, to make a mistake is frowned upon and sometimes even punishable.
You then venture forth into the world and pursue a career with the notion that making mistakes is bad and at all costs you cannot fail but the truth is that one cannot succeed without enduring failure beforehand.
The question is not if you will have problems but how
you are going to deal with your problems.
Failure is inevitable.
How you respond to failure on the other hand is the difference between being average or being an achiever.
Ask yourself this question:
“If my perception of and response to failure were changed, what would I attempt to achieve?”
You are about to find out below the difference between an average persons view towards failure compared to an achievers view towards failure:
Can you notice the difference?
These are the differences between average people and achieving people.
How do I become an achiever?
The process of transitioning from being average to being an achiever all starts with how you view and respond to failure.
Remind yourself on a constant basis the different views between average people and achievers by reviewing the table above.
Your goal is to adopt the “Achiever View to Failure”.
When you make a mistake or fail in anything that you do, take a moment to stop and think about the lesson to be learned.
There is always a lesson to be learned from a mistake or failure.
You need to be able to identify the lesson, learn from it and take a proactive approach to moving forward.
Think about a recent setback you experienced.
