Success leaves breadcrumbs, but learning from failures takes your career to the whole next level. I was tired of seeing only images of perfection and success in my social feeds everyday and feeling like everyone else’s lives were better than mine. That’s why in a moment of madness I set myself a challenge to share my personal failures so you can avoid making same mistakes I did.
Yeah, it might be one of the stupidest ideas I’ve ever had!
Yet I haven’t got this far by playing it safe.
We learn from failures much more than best practises
We’re suppose to “celebrate” failure culture, but sharing our personal mistakes is still a tabu – when I launched this challenge people thought I was crazy and making myself look weak.
Ah the amount of personal posts telling me I was doing a career suicide!
Yet in fact it’s the contrary – being openly vulnerable actually shows how strong you are. We all make mistakes, no one is perfect and this makes the the stories far more relatable than sugar-coated self-promo posts we see around social media every single day.
We learn much more from mistakes than best practices and it’s our responsibility to share this with the world.
I genuinely hope you get value out of my stories and it’ll help you to succeed in your life and career 🙂
Let’s make a difference together x
