How to Keep Going after Failure

Resilience is very different than being numb. Resilience means you experience, you feel, you fail, you hurt. You fall. But, you keep going. – Yasmin Mogahed

When you fail and hurt, it sure seems hard to get back up. Yet, isn’t failure simply part of the game of life?

Sometimes we fail forward, sometimes we fail backward. It actually shows that you are engaged in your life and willing to put yourself out there.  When you’re feeling like the failure is getting the best of you, here are some steps to keep in mind that might help you get back on track:

  1. Ask yourself, what caused you to fail? Get to the root of the problem. Understand this part and make a plan to overcome this roadblock the next time.
  2. Seek guidance and support. Ask experts in the field, read books, search the internet, talk about your experience with your closest friends/people you can trust. Have an open conversation and be willing to listen. If your ears are closed off, you won’t set yourself up for success.
  3. Write out your goals and post them for you to see every single day. You can even break these large goals into smaller goals and smaller goals into step by steps. This will help you keep your mind focused and not wander off the path.
  4. Check in with yourself daily. Ask yourself how are you doing? Do you envision success or do you envision being stuck? Your mind can rob you of negative thoughts if you allow it. Keep going! You can achieve most anything you put your mind to.

Now is your chance to rebuild, start new, and refresh. We learn as we go and that doesn’t make us any less valuable than the day before. Instead that makes us even more valuable because we have learned more about ourselves.

When you know yourself even better, you can use your strengths to be the best person you can be.

The Importance of Executive Coaching for Start-ups

We already know that executive and business coaching holds numerous benefits for those who seek it. Whether this is done to streamline your career, negotiate a career shift or raise your levels of productivity, there is no doubt to how beneficial seeking executive and business coaching can be!

So Many Start-Ups

There are numerous start-up companies and businesses that have recently sprung into the market. Many of these offer similar services and products so what separates the best from the simply good tends to boil down to the finer things.

Executive Coaching for Start-Ups

One of the things that can seriously benefit a start up business, company or organization is executive coaching.

Over the course of this blog, we’re going to elaborate on how this is so.

A Removed Perspective

Many of those involved in starting and running their own start ups are passionate individuals. Further, the startups they are invested in hold much significance in their lives emotionally and otherwise. Though this kind of commitment is great, there are times when one needs to take a step back and view situations more objectively for the greater good of the business.

At times like those, where a director or owner cannot distance themselves from the emotional investment, an executive coach can offer valuable perspective.

Goal Setting and Management

Setting goals is an important part of any business; as is managing and seeing them through. A start-up receiving executive coaching will be supported greatly in the area of goal setting and management.

An executive coach will not only help the start up figure out its priorities and vision for growth. They will also provide support and motivation helping those working for the startup see these goals through.

Early Risk Assessment

Executive coaching can help you identify potential risks, losses and pitfalls a lot earlier in the game than you would without it. This is because the executive coach you work with has likely worked with numerous businesses, start ups and individuals.

They also have a realistic idea of what different markets are like and are informed by way of trends. In other words, they not only help you make the right decisions but also help you to avoid numerous risks by identifying them early.

Team Evolution

Managing a new team can at times be tricky. At the same time, if your team is not getting along it will probably be quite difficult for your upstart to thrive. Similarly, an unhappy team means shoddy work. An executive coach can help streamline team interactions and help with motivation as well as morale. They work with the team evolving them into the happy yet productive force you need to function well and make it big!

Sculpting Leaders

Last but not least. an executive coach will help you sculpt yourself into the right kind of employer, partner or leader.

They will inform you about qualities that will help with your work and interactions and provide guidance. They offer perspective and can help you become more aware of your strengths so you can play on them. They will also alert you to growing edges and professional weaknesses that you could work on to be better. Needless to say, a team with good leadership will get places!
