BE A LEADER ROMANCING WITH FAILURE
Life is full of failures with a few successes here and there. On a day to day basis we meet with failures but we abhor talking about it in public as if there is some stigma attached to it. The leaders are not supposed to fail in whatever area they might be in. In reality they fail and keep failing but for the world that is camouflaged. Owning failure is somehow missing in this country. If we don’t own how can we start the journey again objectively on the path to success. It is a morass we are stuck up in.
Failing is an act and failure is a state of mind of accepting it as a reality. It is made like a certificate. It can happen by mistake, because of ignorance, lack of knowledge, no experience, no skills and more often than not because of lack of preparation. These are not permanent physical or mental states. These are not ailments. The story becomes more complex when we are start blaming others and the circumstances for our own debacle. Who else but ourselves is to blame?
When in the dark alley you work endlessly trying to make it happen on the untrodden path or humungous of an effort which does not seem humanly possible, romancing with daily obstacles does not happen. It is war to be fought to the finish. Romancing comes mainly when we talk of days of our struggle after being successful. It is an euphemism to prove a point. Romancing or otherwise, our relationship with failure defines our later success and successive improvement.
Success and failure are not watertight compartments. It’s keeps dotting our professional and personal life nearly incessantly. Handling failure is a critical skill. A leader who can romance with failure, has the guts to accept before the world, set right will succeed. The urge to succeed in one go, every time is not natural as we all know, but we aspire only for that. Leaders capability to romance with failure will actually define the future of business enterprises, society and polity.
INABILITY TO ACCEPT / OWN FAILURE CAN MAKE YOU CHALLENGED.
