how do successful entrepreneurs handle failure?

How do successful business people handle failure? Well, for me personally, in one word is: embracing failure for success.   

When it comes to achieving success in both business and life, winners have a few key qualities that set them apart from those who struggle. One of these qualities is their ability to handle failure with a positive mindset. Successful entrepreneurs view failure as a learning experience and an opportunity for growth. Instead of getting discouraged, they analyze their actions and results to figure out what went wrong. Then, they go back to the drawing board, change their approach, and try again.

In short, the way you handle failure can make all the difference in your journey toward success. So, next time you encounter a setback, try to see it as a result and a chance to learn and improve. And remember, successful people don't give up after one failure - they keep pushing until they reach their goals.

Why do new business owners fail easily? 

Many new business owners don't make it out of the gate because as soon as they fail, they figure, "Who am I kidding? I knew it wouldn't work" and then quit! If everyone had that mindset, we wouldn't have electricity, airplanes, or vaccines ... actually, we'd have pretty much nothing! Every single success in this world was preceded by one, two -- a thousand failures! Babe Ruth set a record for the most home runs. Did you know he also had the record for the most strikeouts? Thomas Edison failed more than a thousand times before he perfected the light bulb.

Why failure is necessary for success?

It's often said that if you're not failing, you're not pushing yourself to your full potential. Staying in your comfort zone may feel safe, but it won't get you to the level of success you're truly capable of. On the other hand, failure is a necessary part of the learning process. It allows you to identify what went wrong, learn from your mistakes, and grow as a result. If you give up at the first sign of failure, you'll never reach your full potential and will remain stuck where you are. So, don't be afraid to take risks and embrace failure as a necessary part of your journey toward success.

Albert Einstein once said, "You cannot solve a problem with the same level of thinking that created it." And, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result." What these statements teach is, to overcome failure, you must think differently and act differently. It is what separates the ordinary from the extraordinary!

How to change your perspective on failure?

As a new business owner, it's important to recognize when you need guidance and support from others who can offer the expertise you may be lacking. This may mean forming a team of individuals with different skill sets and perspectives to inject new talent into your project. The fear of failure can be a major obstacle that holds many entrepreneurs back from achieving their goals. But, it's important to remember that failure should not be feared, but embraced. Living in fear can prevent you from taking necessary risks and can lead to a life half-lived. So, don't let the fear of failure hold you back. Seek out support and embrace failure as a learning opportunity that can ultimately lead to greater success.
