Are you afraid of failing forwards?

Most of us have heard that old saying…’the more you fail, the more you succeed!’.

But if you’re anything like me, the actual process of failing is super painful.

In fact, I hate it with a passion!

Being slightly perfectionistic (ok, maybe more than just slightly!) I totally dread that clumsy part of the learning process that comes with failing, despite that the fact that as a highly qualified Professional Coach it’s exactly what I encourage my clients to do.

Ironic right?

And believe me, I’m still working it, even after all the years I spent training and practising to be really great at what I do.

In fact, even that was personally challenging…just knowing there was a super-gifted Coach somewhere inside of me, but still resenting all the time and ‘less then super-gifted’ coaching sessions it took to get there.

And yet, none of the success I have achieved, and none of the amazing results people are now able to experience would have happened without this.

So what can I tell you?

Yes, I still HATE failing forwards but I also know from experience it’s the only way to go.


So, if you hate it even half as much as I do, then can I recommend you find someone who can at least help you through it with ease and grace.

Not only does this take the pressure off and make it a lot more fun, it also helps you to move through the ‘learning to walk and then run’ phase so much faster.

Because it’s one thing to fail and make mistakes – and then keep making them.

And it’s another thing altogether to use them to ‘fail forwards’ which is the name (and aim) of the game!

It’s for this very reason that I decided to specialise in working 1:1 with those who are finally ready to make a significant step-change (which let me remind you will take a little failure…sorry!)

Maybe you’re already doing a great job of failing-away on your own but you’re starting to feel stressed and worn out by it all.

Or perhaps you’re tired of battling all the usual ‘BS’ at work and you’re ready to take the lessons – and MOVE ON!

Whatever the case, if you’d like to start failing forwards with the added benefit of discovering what you’re uniquely brilliant at, so you can make the changes you want and gain the traction you need…then I’d love to be your guide.

Oh, and btw – only people with proper ‘failure moments’ need apply!
