  11. 11. The Successful Person Knows How to … <ul><li>2. OVERCOME FAILURE </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Failure isn’t failure unless you don’t learn from it. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>- Dr. Ronald Niednagel </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ninety percent of all those who fail are not actually defeated ….. They simply quit. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>- Paul J. Meyer </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  12. 12. 2. Overcome Failure <ul><li>One of the most critical factors determining a person’s success is how he or she deals with failure. Anyone who desires to be successful must develop strategies to overcome it and keep going forward. If he doesn’t , failure will certainly lead to discouragement, and discouragement to defeat. </li></ul>
  13. 13. 2. Overcome Failure <ul><li>2.1 Fear of Failure </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Failure- even the sound of the word is negative. What other word-except “death”- instills such fear in people? When you hear someone say that a person is a failure, it can conjure up quite a mental image: someone living in poverty– maybe friendless– devoid of money, success, a positive future, or even hope. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  14. 14. 2. Overcome Failure <ul><li>2.1.1 Reasons why people fear Failure: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Fear of CRITICISM- Most of the great achievers in history were people who were bitterly criticized but who persevered. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Fear of Taking a RISK- Go out on a limb- after all, that’s where the fruit is. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Fear of Losing SELF-CONFIDENCE </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Fear of Never Getting a SECOND CHANCE- Forget spending time and energy trying to avoid failure, and instead focus on dealing with it in a successful way. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  15. 15. 2. Overcome Failure <ul><li>2.2 Formula For Overcoming Failure: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Recognize Failure For What it is. Failure is not final– unless you make it final. How you see failure is entirely a function of your attitude. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Review Your Failure in Order to Learn- View Failure as an opportunity to Learn </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Recognize Your Weaknesses </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Readjust Your Efforts- You cannot overcome failure by repeating the same flawed process over and over. Yet that is what some people do. They repeat the same mistake, yet they expect different results . </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reenter the Game- If You don’t get back into the game, You will never have the Opportunity to Succeed . </li></ul></ul></ul>

Paul Hovey </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  17. 17. 3. Vision <ul><li>The Value of A VISION </li></ul><ul><li>The people who have most powerfully and permanently influenced their generation have been “seers” – men and women who see more farther than others. In other words, people who make things happen are people who have vision </li></ul>

Vision <ul><li>Values of VISION : </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>VISION Makes Work Fund </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>VISION ADDS VALUE TO OUR WORK </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>VISION PREDICTS YOUR FUTURE </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>OBSTRUCTIONS TO VISION: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Our Past Can Limit Our Vision- Be prepared to dream big and then test your limits.
