Learn How To Fail To Succeed At Weight Loss

Success in losing weight means learning how to fail

It sounds like a paradox, but to be truly successful, learning how to fail is crucial. And although I struggle a lot with this problem myself, I am learning to be more comfortable with failure. Because I know that real growth and learning occurs when we fail. Indeed, failure is a crucial element to success.

Remember; Thomas Edison made not just ten, but 10,000 first attempts to make a lightbulb before he was successful! It took James Dysons fifteen years – and 5,126 attempts – to invent a bagless vacuum cleaner. These stories show how real innovation and creative thinking almost require setbacks and seldom happen overnight. They're the result of sheer determination, confidence, and unwillingness to give up – that's the real recipe for success – and the same goes for weight loss. Learning how to fail is important.

It's an attitude

Think of someone close to you who is not afraid of failure. The people who go out there and try almost anything. They seem to have unwavering confidence and keep fighting regardless of their fear of failure. They don't listen to that voice telling them to stop and give up because it's not working. They show patience and resilience, even in the face of adversity and struggle. These people ultimately tend to succeed, don't they? It may be a long series of failures followed by success – but ultimately it is success.

Next, think of someone you know who is constantly held back by the fear of failure in life. Are you that person You may have a deeply ingrained belief that you are just not good enough. Think about how you berate yourself for simply failing. Think how these thoughts held you back and kept you away from your dreams and goals. Maybe it is time to stop being afraid of failure.

Rather than fear of failure, we should learn that failures and failures are actually the way we learn and how we grow. Some argue that the only truly “failure” is if we don't get up after a fall. Maybe it's time we just accept that failure is on the way. It is time to stop paying so much attention to it and just move on with our dreams and goals. We need to understand and learn from our experiences the underlying reasons for failure. In fact, we learn how to fail, and that learning gives us a better chance of success.

9 famous "failures"

Part of the problem with the media, especially social media, is that we only see one side of the coin. always the picture or the story of the great success. But behind this great success there was often a lot of hard work and failure. We don't hear about these stories, but they are part of most people's journey.

Albert Einstein: Einstein's teachers and parents found him mentally retarded, slow, and unsocial. He was expelled from school. He was also the only senior student who had difficulty finding a teaching job because no professor would recommend him. The only job he could get was an entry-level position in a state patent office. This is the man known today as a genius.

JK Rowling: Before Harry Potter was published, she was almost penniless, severely depressed, divorced, and tried to raise a child alone while attending school and writing a novel. In just five years, through hard work and determination, Rowling went from welfare survival to one of the richest women in the world.

Walt Disney: Today Disney brings in billions of dollars from merchandise, films, and theme parks around the world, but Walt Disney had many personal flaws. He was fired by a newspaper editor because "… he lacked the imagination and had no good ideas." After that, Disney created a number of companies that didn't last long and ended up in bankruptcy and failure. But he kept trying and learning from his mistakes and finally discovered the recipe for success.

Beethoven: Despite his love of composing, many of Beethoven's teachers felt that he lacked the talent and that he would never be able to play the violin or compose. In fact, his music teacher once told his parents that he was too stupid to be a music composer. Imagine if he had taken this to heart and given up trying!

Michael Jordan: Most people are shocked to hear that the man who has often been hailed as the best basketball player of all time was actually asked to quit his high school basketball team. Fortunately, this setback or any other setback didn't stop Jordan from following his dreams. He is known for talking about failures. He once said, “I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I lost almost 300 games. I've been hired to win the game on 26 occasions and I've missed it. I have failed over and over again in my life. And that's why I'm successful. "

Stephen King: King's first book, Carrie, received roughly 30 rejections, which eventually led to the author giving up and throwing it in the trash. But his wife fished it out and encouraged him to resubmit and the rest, as they say, is history. King now has the distinction of being one of the best-selling writers of all time.

Bill Gates: Not many people know that Gates actually quit Harvard. He then founded a company called Traf-O-Data with Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. It failed miserably, but Gates didn't despair and gave up. Instead, he learned from failure and later created the global empire Microsoft.

Henry Ford: While everyone knows Ford cars today, not many know that Henry Ford was not an instant hit. In fact, his early deals failed, leaving him broke five times. Countless people advised him not to be involved in the manufacture of automobiles because he had neither the capital nor the know-how. Imagine if he listened to her or to his own self-doubt?

Vincent van Gogh: Van Gogh only sold one painting in his lifetime, and that was to a friend and only for a very small amount of money. While Van Gogh was unfortunately never a success in his life, he occupied himself with painting and sometimes went hungry to complete his over 800 known works. Today they bring in hundreds of millions each.

5 steps after an error

1. Be honest about what happened: where did you go wrong? What would you do differently next time? What was the loss and what was the gain (because there is often a hidden, personal "gain" from failure). Is it just a matter of trying again?

2. Determine the role you played: Instead of blaming the diet or the personal trainer or your partner, look honestly at your role in it. It is often not external circumstances that lead to failure, but ourselves. Don't be afraid to face your mistakes – they do not represent or define you. They are only part of your behavior.

3. Write it down: Identify the lesson and keep it simple. What did you learn? Keep this in mind the next time you encounter a similar challenge.

4th No more perfectionism: acknowledge that you are a flawed person just like everyone else. Forgive yourself. Embrace the mistake to move on.

5. Think about the story: if this is a story, think about what happens next. Imagine learning from your failure and moving forward. How does it look?

A brilliant Ted Talk

I'm a real fan of Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray Love. I love their Ted Talk about success, failure and the urge to keep creating. It's all about creativity and writing, but you don't have to be interested in writing to get anything from it. It will appeal to anyone who wants to achieve anything in their life at all. It's about not giving up, it's about continuing to follow your dreams.

A memorable quote

I want to leave you one of my famous quotes about Denis Waitley's failure. “Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It's a temporary detour, not a dead end. We can only avoid failure by saying nothing, doing nothing and being nothing. “In other words, when you're trying something new, failure is almost inevitable. Don't let it rattle your cage. Accept; and then move on.
