London based direct marketing and sales specialists, Balance Xperia are urging aspiring professionals to embrace their failures and use them as experiences to improve their performance.
We often hear about the successes of others, but what about their failures? The reality is it is highly unlikely a person will go through life achieving great success without ever experiencing failure in their career. Balance Xperia believe it is important for their workforce to understand that failure is an inevitable part of the journey towards finding success.
Jack Spencer, Managing Director of the firm, believes failure should not be viewed as a stop sign but instead should be used as a learning experience, indicating the next steps a person should take. For an individual to embrace failure and take it in their stride is no easy task, it takes time and effort, and a great deal of dedication. Balance Xperia believe everyone should use failure as points of reference to move forward and grow as individuals.
The company have provided their sales and marketing specialists with some lessons to be learnt from failure:
- Failure is not permanent – while hard times may seem to go on longer than a person wishes, perhaps knocking their confidence, it is important to get back up and continue! Where there is failure, there are important lessons to be learned and new opportunities to be found.
- Everyone experiences failure – this is a fundamental part in life. Successful people learn how to deal with those inevitabilities and develop as a professional by learning from the mistakes so they don’t repeat them.
- Practice becomes the reality – it can be difficult to be confident and strong when faced with challenging situations. Practice being confident and with enough time, a person can master it all. Failure is a chance to expand on knowledge through research and reflection, which in turn expands a person’s greater perspective of the world.
- Relationships are key – Maintaining and building relationships with others who care and understand your journey, provide individuals a chance to maintain confidence, to look at situations from new or other perspectives and remain positive in any situation.
- Rejection is a tool – While rejection can be painful, it is a tool that can help a person build themselves into a stronger more resilient version of themselves.
Balance Xperia believe it is imperative that failure should not be seen as discouragement. Through the firm’s personal development and mentorship scheme, Balance Xperia teach their contractors these lessons to fight the feeling of failure and to focus on what they can learn through moments of failure.
