Everyone fails. And according to radio personality Bobby Bones, that’s good news. He says that failure is so common that most people are too preoccupied with their own mistakes to pay attention to yours.
The lesson? Don’t waste your time or mental energy on spiraling into self-consciousness after a misstep. Instead, leverage that surge of self-awareness to inform your next move. Working in a competitive industry, Bones failed countless times before he found success. Every time he received a rejection, he resisted the urge to take it personally. He started to view his misses as an opportunity for feedback. Contemplating the reasons he failed helped him understand how he could do better in the future.
