…and the off-ramps of success…
|Writers read – a LOT. I’ve been reading (and re-reading) many of the classic positive-thinking books. Most recently, I visited my notes from Failing Forwardby John C. Maxwell. In the book, he defines what he calls the Failure Freeway and how we can get off of it. Because I’m a very visual person, I drew it out, and then thought that it might make a good infographic.
It falls right in line with my book, Get Over It & Get Started. Mistakes are fine, but justifying them and dwelling in them is not. Making the same mistakes is definitely not OK. You’ve got to get up, reassess, and start anew. Sure, you’ll make new mistakes – fire away. How else will you learn? How else will you succeed?
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – to be victimized is an event. To remain a victim is a choice. Choose to get out of the traffic and into the direct routes to success. Get off of the Freeway of Failure.
