fear of failure, overcome failures, persistence, how to handle failure,

hello I'm Brian Tracy and today I want to talk to you about how to handle mistakes and failure in your life one of my favorite questions is that if you're absolutely guaranteed of success in any task or goal large or small what great goal would you set for yourself everyone tends to make mistakes in the busier you are the more mistakes you will make the only question is do you stay positive and keep moving forward from life's inevitable ups and downs here's how you can learn to maintain positive thinking and benefit from your failures in the face of adversity first for you to truly understand yourself and to move forward from the troubling things that may have happened in your past you have to be able to share any doubts that you have from the past you have to be able to get those things off your chest with at least one other person you must rid yourself of those thoughts and feelings by revealing them to someone who won't make you feel guilty or ashamed for what has happened next you must remain positive there are two ways to look at the world the benevolent or positive way or the malevolent or negative way people with a malevolent or negative worldview take a victim mentality seeing life is a continuous succession of problems and a procession of unfairness and oppression they can't move forward that they don't expect a lot and they don't get much when things go wrong they shrug their shoulders and passively accept that this is just the way life is and there isn't anything that they can do to make it better on the other hand people who practice positive thinking a benevolent worldview see the world around them as filled with opportunities and possibilities they believe that everything happens is part of a great process designed to make them successful and happy they approach their lives their work and their relationships with optimism cheerfulness and a general – of positive thinking and expectations they stay positive expect a lot and are seldom disappointed when you develop this skill you become the kind of person who welcomes obstacles and setbacks as opportunities to flex your mental muscles and move forward you look at problems as rungs on the ladder of success that you grab onto as you pull yourself higher and higher two of the most common ways to deal with failure are invariably fatal to high achievement the first common but misguided way to handle a mistake is the failure to accept it when it occurs 70% of all decisions we make will be wrong that's just an average this means that as some people will fail more than 70% of the time and some people will fail less it's hard to believe that most of the decisions we make could turn out to be wrong in some way in fact if this is the case how can our society continue to function at all and this brings me to my next point cut your losses the fact is that our society our families our companies and our relationships continue to survive and thrive because intelligent people tend to cut their losses stay positive and minimize their mistakes it's only when people refuse to accept that they have made a bad choice or decision and prolong the consequences by sticking to that bad choice or decision that mistakes become extremely expensive and hurtful finally learn from your mistakes and improve the second common approach that people take with regard to their mistakes one that hurts innumerable lives and careers is the failure to use your mistakes to better yourself and to improve the quality of your mind and your thinking learning from your mistakes and is an essential skill that enables you to move forward stay positive and develop the resilience to be a master of change rather than a victim of change the person who recognizes that he or she has made a mistake and changes the direction the fastest is the one who will win in an age of increasing information technology and competition by remaining fast on your feet he will be able to outplay an out position your competition you will become a creator of circumstances rather than a creature of circumstances now I'd love to hear from you so my question today is this tell me about a mistake you made and what did you learn from leave a comment below and I'll be sure to follow up with you thanks for watching and remember if you want to change your future take action and take action now if you enjoyed this video and feel it was valuable and teaching you about learning from your failures subscribe to my channel like this video and share this video with your friends don't forget to click the button on the screen for a free gift thanks again for watching

  1. Tell me about a mistake you made, what did you learn from it? Leave a comment and I will be sure to follow up with you.

    Life becomes more difficult when you refuse to accept that you made a bad choice. Develop the resilience to be a master of change rather than a victim >>

  2. I was not able to find proper guidance and I was expecting other peoples to assume my situation. Toxic people were manipulating my mind to lower my self esteem and I was unaware how to help myself.

  3. It is my peleasure to see your vedio sir. Till i read your book only… The psychology of selling. … If anybody what to increase income .. Read the book of Mr Brian Tracy.. God bless you sir…

  4. I just failed at something. I spent two months building a video for healing adults who witnessed domestic abuse a sa child. And after I launched it, it failed. The beautiful thing is for the first time I didn't let this failure bother me. I actually moved on to the next task force. It is amazing 🙂

  5. I made the mistake of underrating a course, thinking that passing itself would be easy and would become filthy rich. I ended up failing in it, understanding that underrating it the worst thing which many people face, leading to joblessness and here my status Is, Financially damaged!!

  6. I've been in the life insurance industry for 5 1/2 years and sadly I'm barely earning enough to support my basic needs. I think the main problem for me is prospecting and networking. I'm working on it. Any tips/guide that can help?

  7. Quit job when I had a huge salary. I learned that having a job or money or career isn't the only measure of success and happiness at every stage of life.

  8. I listened to my parents but didnt listen to my heart. I always gave priority to others and expected from them but didnt invest to keep my own mind happy.

  9. As a service to Mr. Tracy's lecture here are the main points of the lesson

    1. Disclose yourself to at least one person

    2. Remain positive. take responsibility

    3. Cut your loses.

    4. Learn from your mistakes and improve.

    An estimated 70 percent of of decisions made will be wrong. so expect most of what you will make to be mistakes and have plans or steps to fall back to when things go wrong for as much mistakes as you can so you can ultimately master the process and be successful.

  10. There are many mistakes I have been doing. E.g. I'm a knowledge seeker, and I have been investing behind learning. But some times I don't get anything out of it. And I relise myself that I unecessary wasted my time and energy and money too. And the problem arises in implement of the knowledge. Pls guide me
    What to do and what not.

  11. I've been a procranitor for a very long time and I'm trying to change it, to be honest it's very hard because of of procranition i lost a lot. I've reading your books and listening to your audios, it's giving the way to become better in life. Your are really making lots of change in our life's . Thanks for your great work.

  12. sir when I was bright in study I become arrogant, when I become fail again and again I lost hope in study become kind towards who were not bright in Studies , this what I learn from my mistake. that everybody have something talent.

  13. I’m 14 and I read your book, your book is name (be clever) idk is that something like that and is that my first book I read

  14. I used to procrastinate a lot in the past and that costed me a lot. I learned to program my life as the old saying says: "Live to sieze the moment". The minute that spent to write this statement won't come back ever again' not even for all of the money of the world. make the most out of what you have.

  15. Sometimes people who have been traumatised and suffer PTSD or C-PTSD have a more negative view of life because the neural pathways have changed in response to that trauma. Negativity is involuntary. It is not their fault. And if they really are a victim of something that has caused trauma, acknowledging that they are a victim and that their response is norma is very important. While neural plasticity means positive change can occur, it is a very difficult thing for the traumatised person to do. First you have to come to the place where you believe change can happen and that damage can be reversed. Then you have to put in the daily work to help that happen and that is a tough fight. But here I am listening to you after 3 1/2 years of the fight, still alive, and making change bit by bit. Respect to those who know that fight .

  16. It's interesting that you say it is those who get hurt or fail the most are those who don't change from the mistake they are making quicky. I pursued something in helping someone else over 12 years. At times I thought maybe I was doing the wrong thing, but I pressed on with helping them because I had learned the principle of dedication. But I wish I hadn't! It's not always easy to know when to stop doing something and when to change from that direction.

  17. I studied for a test over the weekend and bombed it on Monday. I became anxious and wasn't able to settle myself down during the test. I missed the rest of the afternoon of school, got mad at myself and totally got myself off track. I watched this video and the "cut your losses" part reminded me that I have a choice to either hold on to this negativity or to let it go. Well, I decided to let it go and get back on the horse and ride into the Sun! Thank you Brian Tracy for your inspiration!

  18. Hi Brian, recently I started a new job (thanks mostly from watching your videos which made me feel uber confident and in control). I was extremely proud of myself. It all started well and I even received a $1500 bonus. Unfortunately, work place bullying – which was more personal than work related – became unbearable. This was my first corporate position and I tried to stick it out but eventually had a breakdown. I can accept the failure..but moving forward, my confidence was pretty much destroyed. Should I just go back to a low paid job where I feel more comfortable (essentially cutting my losses) or risk trying again in a higher paid job and work on my self esteem? My mistake was letting what was said get to me so bad that I couldn’t function.
