How to handle failure in a positive way

Failure is a reality that you will need to face; many entrepreneurs wake up every day thinking “how will I fail today?” But it is really not about accepting failure but finding out who to handle it, which is what we will show you today.

“Entrepreneurs use to be very strong with themselves most of the time, accepting failure as a normal and expected situation, but it is in the way of facing it and learning from mistakes what defines a real leader”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, about this topic.

Here are some advices that will help us handling failure:

  • It is hard to fail, but it is worst not trying, so do not be afraid of taking a step further as no one lost more than the person who never tries.
  • Own the failure, while you chase success, you will face with many obstacles, as well as those people following you, you need to accept it, do not make excuses and do not blame other ones or yourself, as that will not take you out of a situation that is already complicated.
  • For many entrepreneurs, forgiving them for a failure is a very hard part, but if you are very aware that it is with failure that you get new knowledge and experience, you will find it easier to get going.
  • Remember that failure is another stair that will get you closer to your goals, none of the successful businessmen of today have become rich at the first chance, it is even amazing to find out that the most important the entrepreneurs are, the most they have failed on their way.

“Many entrepreneurs also make a common mistake by starting everything by themselves, so if they fail, they will do it alone, but that also makes it hard to know when you are failing and how can you change to take your enterprise in the correct way, so a good business partner can help you taking decisions and sharing ideas with you, that will make you both take less risks and avoid possible failures in the future”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.

Personal development

What is personal development and how important it is to succeed

Personal development was first introduced by Abraham Maslow, who showed a hierarchy consisting of needs represented by a pyramid, where the personal fulfillment occupied the apex, this fulfillment is defined as the wish or aspiration to turn into that person you really want to be.

Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, an important manufacturing company in Mexico says the following: “The complete knowledge of oneself is very important, as that is the only way to see the faults and how we can improve in all senses; this process is known as personal development. To increase the consciousness will help to grow as a person and succeed personally and professionally”.

Many companies know the importance of hiring motivated personnel, and to help them improving their personal development, which will encourage them to work together and make a successful work.

In the past, some of the biggest and more important companies saw their workers as a part of a big gear, but this though is now considered as obsolete. It is important that each employee is treated individually, to stimulate and use their talents and particular virtues and this can only be achieved if they work within a friendly environment, with enough freedom for them to work easily and in a confortable way.

On any level of developments, whether it is economic, political, organizational, or self-esteem or personal, a good reference structure is always needed in order to determine if any improvement has been done since the development process has begun.

“Both, personal and professional development have the same importance as a person cannot aspire to succeed on a job if he or she are not willing to know themselves and see how they can improve personally”, added Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal.
