Leadership: Why do we Fail ?

Leadership: Why do we Fail ? | Business Strategies for Growth | Scoop.it
Whether we admit it or not, all of us have failed in our lives sometime or the other.Successful people take failure as a learning step in the right direction. In fact, it is good to fail sometimes, but why do we fail ?

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Mike Doherty's insight:

Lack of Goals: Sometimes, in our lives and in our career, we feel that we have "hit the ceiling."  We feel that  there is no where to go further. Our lives have reached a full-stop.  Yes. It is true that this does happen. But , to succeed, we have to sense this before we reach the stage when we think that we cannot progress further and take positive steps on the next part of our lives and career.  We should have a clear vision where we want to go.  It is perfectly fine to make changes to your goals when the need arises, to think about altering your course. We can always have a list of excuses, but to succeed, we need clarity of thoughts, self discipline and a sense of self worth.

Susan Bender Phelps's curator insight, October 9, 2015 1:06 PM

Our habits are so easy to do because they are habits and we don't have to think about them to do them and that's also why bad habits or unproductive habits are so hard to break. The good news is, you don't have to break them. Just adopt a new practice and repeat until it becomes a habit. Old habits literally fall away with disuse. This article gives us very concrete and practical ways to start.

Ian Berry's curator insight, October 9, 2015 6:24 PM

All implementable by anyone anywhere. Particularly like the fixing little things every day (I'd add it doesn't have to be fixing it can simply be improving) I call this every day innovation. I also like the it's not a fixing people it's about fixing process
