I’ve failed A LOT.
Like the time I gave a 60-minute presentation at a Women’s Banking conference in 2007.
: My speech flopped.
: I talked to the WRONG crowd.
: I felt like someone else in my ‘professional’ pantsuit.
After the event was over, I went home. Cried my fake eyelashes off. And binged on reruns of Beverly Hills, 90210.
Feeling better the next day, I decided that even though I’d failed, I was going to FAIL LIKE A FANCY LADY. And learn from the experience.
Next time I was asked to speak at a big event …
- I would pick a better topic – and perfect my delivery
- I would only present to entrepreneurs
- I would wear something I LOVED and felt good in
I also drafted a list of 5 important, truth-revealing questions to ask myself every time I felt like I’d failed.
When you’re truthful with these 5 questions …
You open to beautiful opportunities to dive deeper into your magic.
Perfect your craft.
And create your Red Carpet Dream life.
Now think about a time you felt like you failed – or something didn’t quite go your way.
Your webinar sucked.
Your sales conversation was a disaster.
Your IG Live was horrific.
Because these 5 questions are only powerful if they have context.
So you MUST have your I-failed-moment.
Got your moment?
Here’s the questions …
#1 What worked?
#2 What didn’t work?
#3 Where did I work outside of my Magic?
#4 What did I learn?
#5 What will I do different next time?
Tony Robbins says, “Business is for gladiators.”
I disagree. I say, “Business is for fancy ladies.”
