Failure is a terrible word. Or is it?
The value of failure is one of the most misunderstood business topics. How so?
Many of the most successful, most wealthy and most accomplished people on the planet have failures etched on their CVs. Often multiple times.
In the ordinary world of business, even the smallest failure can knock us back and make us worry that we’re not good enough. It’s at times like these that it’s easy to start feeling that you’d be better off packing it in and getting a ‘proper job’.
However, if the last 18 months have taught us anything, it’s that a ‘proper job’ is nothing like as safe and secure as it’s made out to be.
So how do those who fail in business end up so successful? What’s the difference between them and others who go back to the ‘situations vacant’ pages? It’s pretty simple - attitude, resilience, determination.
No doubt those failures have left scars - but they learned from them and bounced back with better ideas and greater resolve. Failures are often stepping stones, the lessons that give us a better chance of success next time.
It’s important to remember - it’s not the failure that matters, it’s that you get up again and have another go. You learn and adjust, you get it right.
So how do you develop resilience and attitude - that belief in yourself? They are among the major topics covered at our Standing on the Shoulders of Giants event on Saturday 30 October.
For one, you’ll hear from Martin Hewitt, ex-para, who was shot on duty in Afghanistan and lost the use of his right arm. He went on to represent Great Britain internationally as an adaptive skier, he’s crossed the Arctic, climbed mountains, and is about to go to Antarctica for another gruelling adventure. Talk about bouncebackability!
