“Winners are not afraid of losing. losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.” – Robert T. Kiyosaki
Hard times are a friend to all. How we choose to address those hard times determines our character. Is your hardship a failure or an opportunity for a flip?
Think of it in terms of investing: buy low and sell high. The principle applies to everything from stocks to real estate. Let this same principle apply to your hard times too. Invest in your failures and add value for your success. Here’s how:
1. Pick an industrious area of interest – identify an aspect of your life that can be improved with little input of your current resources.
2. Accept a comfortable risk – determine the cost (i.e. time, effort, money, and/or emotions) that you are willing to change or loose for potential growth.
3. Add value – invest the cost needed (ex. time and money) for your new skill or knowledge.
4. Monitor progress – establish routine times to review activities and the related losses or gains.
5. Position for success – make needed changes (ex. shift investments to another area when uncomfortable losses exist; increase investment areas when gains allow it).
Hard times are friends to all. Embrace them and welcome the gifts of innovation that they bring. Get going now!
