Failure is nothing more than a few errors in judgment repeated ever day over a period of time.
How often have you or someone you know seen something that is not working in a business and take the attitude that it just doesn’t matter enough to do something correct it, eliminate it or even improve it? Most of us have been guilty of falling into this philosophical trap of “it just doesn’t matter.”
These errors in judgment get repeated because people don’t think they matter. Over time, accumulation of poor thinking leads to poor choices.
Failure’s most dangerous attribute is subtlety. To reduce the number of failures and to increase the possibilities for success you must have powerful personal philosophy guiding your every step.
You must become more aware of your errors in judgment and that each error really does matter. The next time you see something that you know is not right or leading you down the wrong path, address it.
The next step is to do something about it. Maybe you can’t do something about it today. The key is to not forget about it. Write it down. Take action on those things that you can. Always be taking action.
Only with purposeful action will you experience the flip side of failure, success.
