To Find Success, First Write Your Failure Resume

To Find Success, First Write Your Failure Resume | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

An old proverb reminds us that “success has many fathers, but failure is an orphan.” To learn from failure, however, you have to “own” it. You have to figure out what went wrong and what to do better next time. If you don’t, you’re liable to repeat your errors in the future.

Why Perfectionists Are Often the Biggest Failures

Why Perfectionists Are Often the Biggest Failures | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

A few years ago on a college campus, a ceramics professor decided to try an experiment on one of his classes. At the start of the semester he divided the class into two groups and explained that each group would be graded differently.

Group 1 would be graded on the total number of pots they could create throughout the semester, with a minor importance given to quality.

Group 2 would be graded on just one pot. They had all semester to work on just one pot so they better make it impressive.

At the end of the semester, the students all turned in their work for grading. To the professor’s amusement, the 5 highest quality pots all came from the group who was focused on quantity over quality. In fact, most of the pots from Group 2 were terrible. They just looked like over-worked lumps of hollowed out clay.

Why did this happen?

N'Quavah Velazquez, EdD's curator insight, April 13, 9:29 AM
While we  may subscribe to the idea that failure is just another opportunity to pursue success, many struggling early learners have not mastered this concept. Hence, what impact does helping our students work through failure more effectively have? Part of the answer lies in taking note of what happens to the brain when a person experiences a chain of  failures and what is necessary to  break that cycle.
Lon Woodbury's curator insight, April 13, 12:24 PM

We learn through failure and mistakes?  Not according to this writer, who says that making mistakes increase the chance of worse mistakes. Anybody agree? -Lon

3 Types of Successes People Rarely Stop to Recognize - The Coaching Tools Company Blog

3 Types of Successes People Rarely Stop to Recognize  - The Coaching Tools Company Blog | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Here are 3 types of successes people rarely stop to recognize:

 

1) Concrete steps taken towards larger goals. 

 

2) Successes of PERSONAL value, but not necessarily recognized by others. 

 

3) Our failures AND mistakes. Overcoming failures and mistakes MUST be celebrated.  If we have failed – it is because we risked and it is only by risking that we make changes in our lives. Plus, when we reject our mistakes and failures we also reject a part of ourselves.

 

Suggestion: Set up a session to help your client celebrate their success – and honour themselves. And not only are you celebrating, you’re reframing success and failure, and building their self-esteem too!

On the Benefits of Failure

On the Benefits of Failure | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
Failure is nothing to be ashamed of!

 

 

We live in a competitive society that has big winners and big losers. Educators, motivation experts, life coaches, sport psychologists and other mentors mainly teach us how to approach success, how to be winners. Few teach us a much more valuable lesson – how to cope with failure.

A society that worships winners tends to make horrible choices, whether considered from a moral, or a practical, perspective.

Re-defining Failure (And Success!)

Re-defining Failure (And Success!) | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
How we define two simple concepts can ultimately lead to brilliant work or paralysis.

 

The two things that will paralyze us creatively faster than any others:
1. We haven’t defined success.
2. We haven’t defined failure.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

"(...) when she was a child her father made it a habit to ask on a regular basis “what did you fail at this week?” When she replied, “nothing” he would retort, “Oh…that’s too bad.”

Of this ritual she says, "My definition of failure became ‘not trying’, not the outcome."

8 Steps for Breaking Through Any Obstacle

8 Steps for Breaking Through Any Obstacle | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

This weekend I came across a video of kids breaking through wooden boards with their hands. I was curious about the technique that these kids were taught in karate class so I started researching it.

The first page I found was at www.WikiHow.com, which had an article called “How to Break a Board with Your Bare Hand.”

As I read through the steps, I was amazed at how similar the steps for breaking a board are to the steps for overcoming all other obstacles in life.

The Right Way to Respond to Failure

The Right Way to Respond to Failure | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

"Typically, when people fail, we blame them. Or teach them. Or try to make them feel better. All of which, paradoxically, makes them feel worse. It also prompts defensiveness as an act of self-preservation. (If I'm not okay after a failure, I'd better figure out how to frame this thing so it's not my failure.)

Our intentions are fine; we want the person to feel better, to learn, to avoid the mistake again. We want to protect our teams and our organizations.

But the learning — the avoidance of future failures — only comes once they feel okay about themselves after failing. And that feeling comes from empathy."
