"Owning and Sharing Your Failures" [Creator's Block Ep. 85]

"Owning and Sharing Your Failures" [Creator's Block Ep. 85] Blog Feature

As some of you may already know, I'm a struggling perfectionist when it comes to work.

I always want to do tasks perfectly, the first time, every time -- but, as we all know, that's not realistic.

Failing, whether at work or in my personal life, used to be something that crippled me. 

Over time, though, I learned to appreciate my failures -- every single one of them.

Whether I messed up with a small task or failed on a larger scale, I gained more insight and direction from those mistakes than I ever will reading a book or attending a webinar.

So, why are we so afraid to admit our failures?

There was a recent post in IMPACT Elite where a member detailed a mistake she made at work and felt she let her team down because of it.

She asked other members for "some encouragement and a quick pat on the back saying, 'its ok, it happens, it's not the end of the world, everything is ok.'"

I was actually humbled by the number of responses people shared, explaining how we are all in the same boat. It was encouraging to hear other people's experiences.

Those simple reminders that you're not alone, others have gone through similar instances.

Though it's at first scary, owning and sharing your failures actually ends up building a stronger culture and relationship.

How so?

Listen to this week's episode as special guest -- and Creator's Block founder -- Liz Murphy and I discuss some of our biggest failures and how to change the negative experience into a success story.
