You Are a Failure

[et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”]

It sounds acceptable to say that sometimes doesn’t it? After we lose big, make a poor choice or watch something turn out with less than the results we expected it seems ok to say, “Well, I am a failure.”

But it isn’t.

Not because you didn’t fail. I’m not here to paint a rainbow on a pile of trash for you. But because when other things happen to us, even if it is something we could have avoided, we don’t say we are that thing. We say we had that thing.

We don’t say, “I am a bad haircut,” or, “I am a sunburn.” But for some reason we have no problem describing ourselves as the thing that happened, when we put work out and it doesn’t work.

And it may not have even been the work that failed! It may have been the marketing, the packaging, the copy or the audience that you got wrong.

The work may have been great!

But we still walk around describing ourselves as failures. I think this needs to change. We aren’t a failure, we had a failure, we produced a failure, maybe we even caught a failure from someone else!

But, to say we are a failure is giving ourselves a reason not to try again, and that is the only failure.
