Fail to succeed - Online

Date & time

Registration is closed


This event is free




Do you find yourself failing to succeed? The reason may just be that you don’t allow yourself to fail! It’s not just you… In fact, we are socialized to avoid failure and when we do fail, the same social norms encourage us to feel shame and regret. What is the expense of not failing? Not succeeding! Fear of failure and the risk avoidance that accompanies that fear often proves to be limiting. Learning to navigate failure and using every failure to inch closer to achievement is the best road to success. This workshop will help you change your mindset about failure, allow you to manage expectations around success and failure and enable you to see the potential of failure as a ladder to success. 

You will learn:

  • How we are socialized to avoid failure
  • Why the fear of failure leads to a lack of success
  • When to take risks and embrace the possibility of failure
  • What to do to learn from and rise above failure
  • Stories of failure that led to success
