What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is failure and success. We are launching our second technology platform literally tomorrow and I was talking to our advisor, Rob, who has been shepherding us, literally shepherding us along the way. I was talking to him yesterday and he said, with a sinister and funny laugh “Don’t forget you asked for this”!
February 1st is the day
It is so true! I asked for this! I did, and it got me thinking about failure, what happens if we fail if it doesn’t work if we don’t see the behaviors that we’re expecting with the use of this new technology?
Then it got me thinking a bit deeper, saying to myself, you know what? Failure is not finite. Success is not finite. The question I need to be asking myself along the is what am I learning? There’s only one thing that’s worse than random success, and that is a random failure. It’s not knowing why you’re being successful or not knowing why you’re not being successful.
As long as I continue to keep my mental toughness, keep my grittiness, don’t get overwhelmed by emotions, and just continue to ask myself the question, what am I learning from this? I think we’re going to be okay.
My encouragement to you is when you’re doing something tough when you’re doing something hard when you’re going through the peaks and the valleys, ask yourself, what am I learning from this?
Because when you do that and you’re increasing your knowledge and your wisdom base, you will ultimately get to the place that you want to get to.
That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. You guys have a great week.
Please, please, please send lots of love and luck and mojo for us. February one is the day!
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is failure which is inspired by one of my personal experiences. About seven or eight years ago, I was speaking at the ACA’s National Chiropractic Legislative Conference. It was on a Sunday at 9:00 AM and do you know how many people showed up to that class? Nobody!
Learn From Your Failures
I got up this morning, I’m at the Texas chiropractic association at the Chiro Texpo event. I spoke today, with my good friend Brad Cost. We had a great time and a great crowd.
This morning, I saw the stadium when I looked out the window and I was like, man, Minor Leagues and that brought me back to a point in my career about seven, or eight years ago when I was speaking at the ACA National Chiropractic Legislative Conference. It was on a Sunday at 9:00 AM and nobody showed up to that class. That was a pretty lonely feeling. It was a feeling of complete and utter failure. Nobody knew who I was and my brand didn’t matter. Nobody cared what I was talking about.
I learned how to use that day and that experience to try and hone my speaking skills, my relationship skills, my marketing skills, and my writing skills. So, at some point in my career, hopefully, people would want to at least hear what I have to say, even if they didn’t like or agree with it.
I’m here at this event and I just think about all the hard work that was put in to get me to this point so far in my career, and also all the hard work that I have ahead of me to be, as my good friend, Jeff Lesher would say “even better”.
So, it’s been an incredible journey and I just want you to know that when you fail and you’ve got those lonely moments, think about what you can learn from it and then take action, and when you do good things will happen.
That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill, have a great week.
