“You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.”
~ Beverly Sills

What this quote means to women entrepreneurs:

Do you have days where you just feel like nothing is going right? Like it might just be better to give up, thrown in the towel and eat some worms? I’ve had those days. Heck sometimes I still have them.

But one of the things that keeps me going, keeps me getting up in the morning and working on and in my business, is the idea that giving up guarantees failure. In fact, it guarantees the wrong kind of failure, the kind that does not lead to personal growth.

When you do your best and fail, you can learn from that experience. You can grow so that the next time you do your best, it will be better and, perhaps, you’ll succeed.

Throwing in the towel just leads to wallowing in your sorrow. And where’s the growth in that?

When things aren’t working out, ask yourself these questions:

  • Am I pulling my punches? Not playing full out?
  • Am I missing some knowledge or a team member to make this work?
  • Did I go into this without the faith that it would work?

When you identify why things aren’t working out, you can work toward fixing the problem. And be sure to dig into all the realms where self-sabotage can lie:

  1. Mindset and beliefs: Are you blocking your success with an unsupportive belief or block?
  2. Skills sets available: Do you and your team have the skills necessary to pull this off?
  3. Knowledge and access to information: Do you and your team have the knowledge necessary to pull this off?
