¿Qué nos pueden enseñar los mejores?


franciscoalcaide.com

Dentro de poco publicaré un libro que llevará por título «Aprendiendo de los mejores», una publicación que parte de la idea de que tu desarrollo personal es tu destino. Por eso, no hay mejor inversión que la que se hace en uno mismo. ¿Y cuál es la mejor forma de invertir en ti mismo? Aprendiendo de los mejores, de aquellos que con la credibilidad de sus resultados nos pueden indicar pautas sobre cómo enderezar nuestros pasos (ver post Un buen mentor es lo mejor que te puede pasar).

Decía Betrand Russell que «la mejor prueba de que algo puede hacerse es que antes alguien ya lo hizo». Por eso las personas inteligentes  aprenden de la experiencia de los demás. Es cierto que nadie puede vivir tu vida por ti –única e irrepetible– pero hay principios universalmente contrastados aplicables a todas las circunstancias y personas, que se repiten una y otra vez, y que son de gran utilidad.

Self-Image Is The Key To Success In Business And In Life

“There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge.”–Napoleon Hill

It has been conclusively demonstrated that individuals who expect to succeed at a given venture are more likely to do so than those who expect to fail. Positive expectations work as a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy–those who expect to succeed are more likely to do so, thus maintaining and reinforcing their expectation for success.

Today, we are going to take this analysis one step further and address the underlying cause of these expectations.

The expectations we have for ourselves are largely determined by our self-image. The opinion you have of yourself directly impacts your expectations and thus your chances for success in ventures of all sorts.

Rethinking Failure

Tried anything recently that didn’t quite work out? Congratulations! You’re on your way to a breakthrough.

Bottom line, there is no innovation without “failure.” If your perception of failure is “something to avoid,” you can kiss innovation goodbye. Failure comes with the territory. If the word puts you in a foul mood, use another one — like “experiment,” for example.

* “The way to succeed is to double your failure rate.” — Thomas Watson, Founder of IBM
* “Do not fear mistakes. There are none.” — Miles Davis
* “99 percent of success is built on failure.” — Charles Kettering
* “I have not failed once. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that didn’t work.” — Thomas Edison
* “An inventor fails 999 times, and if he succeeds once, he’s in. He treats his failures simply as practice shots.” — Charles Kettering
* “Give me the young man who has brains enough to make a fool of himself.” — Robert Louis Stevenson
* “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” — Robert F. Kennedy
* “Adversity reveals genius, prosperity conceals it.” — Horace
* “When we can begin to take our failures non-seriously, it means we are ceasing to be afraid of them. It is of immense importance to laugh at ourselves.” — Katherine Mansfield
