What amount of Failure works?

We all know that failure is part of growth and that we have to fail to some extent to move forward, and that without some degree of failure, we fail to progress at all.

But what about the cost of continued failure?

  1. Low Self-Esteem and Self-Worth: Repeated failures can erode one's confidence in their abilities and value as a person.

  2. Increased Anxiety and Stress: The fear of failing again can lead to heightened levels of anxiety and chronic stress.

  3. Depression and Hopelessness: Persistent failure can contribute to feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a sense of being trapped.

  4. Self-Doubt and Insecurity: Individuals may begin to doubt their capabilities and constantly second-guess their decisions.

  5. Fear of Taking Risks: A fear of failing again can deter individuals from taking healthy risks and pursuing new opportunities.

  6. Perfectionism: A tendency to strive for unattainable perfection in an attempt to avoid future failure.

  7. Avoidance Behavior: Some may avoid challenges or new experiences altogether to steer clear of potential failure.

  8. Lack of Motivation and Initiative: Continual failure can lead to a lack of motivation to set goals or take proactive steps towards improvement.

  9. Impact on Relationships: Feelings of inadequacy and frustration can strain personal and professional relationships.

  10. Loss of Optimism: A pervasive sense of failure can lead to a loss of hope and optimism about the future.

It is said that the perfect "failure" rate is 15%

More than that and the task is too hard or restrictive

Less than that and the goal may not seem big enough and we dont bother to try

If you want to think of this in term of weight loss a failure rate of 15% may look like 4 meals per week could be classed as a "fail"

Thats a pretty cool thought. So in your progress for weight loss not every meal has to be on point, in fact 4 meals per week could be "off" point and still allow for optimal success

"food for thought"
