Just risk nothing
A stringent CV without frills is considered a guarantee for professional success. Everything must work the first time: A-levels, Casting and the career rise in the new job. The consequence of this thinking is dramatic: for fear of a "black spot" in the CV nothing is risked!
The courage to dare to make a decision is already stifled in the bud, the reflection of your own performance is the same. Innovations are thus prevented.
Dead end faultlessness
Also the psychological pressure on the worker increases. Employee potential is braked. What remains is the old, which has proven itself already and which one believes with him a success guarantee.
But this is a mistake! There is no guarantee, no security in life and you can not expect it from anyone else. The only security you can find is the one in yourself. I and no one else have my life in my hand.
There are more people who surrender than fail!
Henry Ford put it in a nutshell: "There are more people surrendering than failing!" It is one thing to set off, another to "pull through" the project. Halfway or even reversing is a common practice.
Reversing is convenient. If everything stays the same, we do not have to deal with anything new and we do not have to fight for a new place.
It is to remain as it is
Where we are, we are already something: in the circle of colleagues we have found our place, we have gained a certain reputation with the boss and compared to the competitor we are quite well there.
We do not want to give up that position. We are satisfied with what we have ... sounds good. But does it make us happy?
Failure as an opportunity
You have to see it like this: failure is always only an intermediate state. A milestone after a stage that can be left behind. Failure allows us to reflect on our actions, to challenge ourselves, and to discover new aspects of ourselves. It teaches us to achieve success by other means and by other means, and thus makes us more flexible.
We can respond better to difficult situations because we have gathered experience and know that there is always a plan B. The actress Natalie Portman has put it so succinctly: "Failure makes you afraid of failure."
Only those who are lying down really fail
If a "defeat" is foreseeable, one should, pointed out, encounter it "sporty". It is not a law of nature to lie down! Although Earth gravity may facilitate the fall, it is more important to gather and bundle one's own strength to get back up.
Only those who lie will really fail!
The black spot as proof of the re-emergence
The presumed black spot in the CV can also be one: Best evidence that the supposed failure followed a standing up and the person who is going to have the courage and the strength to go on and look forward.
This makes mature personalities. From the viewpoint of work, a characteristic which may weigh more than a striking resume.
