“Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong.”
“I quit being afraid when my first venture failed and the sky didn’t fall down.”
You have to face your fear. Because it is only then that you discover the thing that billions of people throughout history have discovered before you. Failure won’t kill you. Nor will being wrong. The sky will not fall down. That’s just what people that haven’t faced their fear yet think.
The thing is to reframe failure from being something that makes your legs shake to something useful and important for the growth of your self confidence and your overall growth as a human being. Here are four ways that failure can help you out:
Failing is a good thing, make lots of mistakes, learn from them and you will succeed. As one of my rugby coaches told me at the start of the season. "The next eight weeks are about making as many mistakes as possible, but we have to learn from them and learn from them quickly and move on". That year we went onto win the league and the cup.
Being a Scentsy Consultant in Ireland and being a Scentsy consultant in the UK, we are learning from mistakes every day. Learning from these mistakes though will ultimately give us a great platform for our success.
