Some feedback I have received from people indict a need for more “how to fight failure” steps, so I wanted to give you six steps you can use starting today – if necessary.
First, let me remind you – some failures are going to happen. The key is to limit their consequences and impact using methods I discussed in previous articles. Failures are only events or happenings and have no bearing upon “who” you are. You are not the failure – the event was the failure. You are fine.
If you have difficulty understanding the impact or reasoning behind the second paragraph then you are a candidate for a good personal development seminar. Check out the Phoenix Seminar, especially since it is now online.
Okay, back to the six steps…
Earlier I talked about four ways to deal with failure. And, one of the ways to deal with failure was to learn from the failure. Yet, several people have asked me “exactly what do I learn from a failure?”
Good question as some felt it only learning to accept failure or the reason was only them.

I know I usually read about good positive information and it will be positive – just read on.
As I reviewed the Phoenix Seminar for its Online debut, I remembered how many people have shared their failures in life or business or with others. Yet, most learned how to change their perception of dealing with failure after the Phoenix Seminar.
One of the keys to dealing with or coping with failure is to learn the Four Ways of Dealing with Failure…

As an entrepreneur, I am continuously thinking that if I can make it to tomorrow or the weekend I can catch up and possibly get ahead. GEEZ! What a pipe dream! Plus, I thought I was the only one who had this issue hanging around to bug me while attempting to put structure and order into my day.
Well, I began to listen to my corporate brethren who were saying the same thing – sometimes with even greater intensity. I heard about the 200 plus emails and voice mails – not to mention the continuous stream of meetings to attend.
My goodness, it is a wonder we get anything done in this world of crazy we live in.
The story is told of a depressed woman who jumped from a bridge into the river below. Without hesitation, a man who witnessed the act jumped in to save her. But “the hero” suddenly remembered that he couldn’t swim. Soon he began yelling for help and thrashing around, which would likely mean instant death for both.

Since their belief system values attempts to take control of things that can be managed by them, a great deal of success typically follows.
The Law of Belief is a sister law to the Law of Attraction, discussed in last week’s blog. Things, people, and circumstances are attracted into our lives, either consciously or unconsciously, through the belief systems we have.
Many times our belief systems are old and outdated and no longer serve us. Often, these beliefs never did work to our higher good. For a good source on the impact of belief upon you mindset – go to this blog site.
