Many people fear failure like the plague. Sometimes it’s because when we were children, nothing was worse than having our failures thrown in our faces repeatedly. Failure is the greatest teacher though. It’s about trying new things and seeing how stuff works or doesn’t? It also reminds you how far you got before things went wrong. Sometimes it’s the economy or season. Businesses are like planting seeds to see which one’s will grow or take off.
One thing that can shorten the learning curve is if there is information on the topic or subject that your seeking to learn. This is only useful if the person whose writing about it actually did it and suceeded. Finding similar topics close to the subject you want to learn can be helpful too. It can broaden your approach on your model. It can give you more resources to try with different steps or price ranges in tools?
Like everything there is a learning curve. Somethings will work easily for some people versus others. Sometimes it’s a personality thing, other times it’s a similar experience thing. The more times you try, the easier it will become if your really connected to it. If your so so, then you success will depend on if you even like what your doing or if your bored with it.
Sometimes, it helps to have a mentor or someone who can see where your efforts went off the rails. Experience will be your biggest teacher. There will be times when you want to throw in the towel. This is normal, and then other times when your working for someone else and you are itching to get back into your own business. This is very helpful in motivating you to learn and find solutions to where things didn’t work.
There will be times when you dig in your heels, and don’t want to include someone or do things in a certain way. Just make sure that the reason your digging in your heals isn’t because your feeling stuborn? There will be times when you notice, that when your feeling resistance. It’s because certain steps or ideas don’t work with your personality. This is normal, if we didn’t think or respond differently; we’d all be robots and the world would be a boring place.
Your feelings will come into play too. So listen to new ideas and then mull them over. Find what works for you and then decide what you will or won’t incorporate into your business or subject that your choosing to learn.
