The current trend is to talk about failing proudly, failing fast and not being afraid of failure. This is fine because the fear of failure can be paralyzing, but this paralysis causes our imminent failure anyway.

Instead, what happens if we shift that attention and energy to the sake of "worry"?

In the forthcoming book Leapfrog: The new revolution for women entrepreneurs, the authors Nathalie Molina Ni & ntilde; o With Sara Grace, explain simple strategies for creating and growing a business, especially if you do not have a lot of money.

A chapter explains in detail why we should "worry about success, not failure." Here's why: By visualizing success before imagining blind spots or potential failures, you allow yourself to create a path to that goal. In addition, you need to make sure that your building project fits well with the life you dream of being and is your version of success.

Here's what to consider when reframing your orientation based on success and failure:

Stop focusing on the quick failure

"Fail fast" has become a real battle cry for many aspiring entrepreneurs or beginners. Being afraid to fail hinders progress. But could it also create a subliminal side effect of thinking too much about failure, so perhaps leading us in its direction?

"The idea of ​​failing fast actually only applies to people with a lot of dry powder (cash reserves) to help them bounce back. This is an idea that really only concerns people with trust funds, large savings accounts or family wealth, which is the profile of the founders of the most successful startups. For the rest of us, failure is not as easy to repair, so should the priority be to work smart and stay disjointed, "explains Molina Ni? ntilde; o.

Design your life, then your business to complete it

Rather than building a company that dominates your life and in some cases goes against what you really want, start by imagining what you really want, then expand the business to support it.

"Success, in other people's terms, is, no. If the recent suicides of some of our most famous business moguls teach us anything, it is that the trap of success is not a measure of true happiness. Not a person? Do not start a relationship-based business. Do you have a case of a vagabond? Do not start a manufacturing company that will allow you to stay in one place. It sounds simple and yet, we often forget to align the design of your life on your business model. Happiness is too important to be an afterthought, "shares Molina Ni & ntilde; o.

Visualize it first

Molina Ni & ntilde; o guide women entrepreneurs through the following meditation:

Start by closing your eyes and "Imagine everything you wanted to be true," she says. "Imagine that you did not just start your business, but saw it grow to phenomenal success beyond anything you could have imagined."

She continues, "You have realized your dreams. Now, in this world you've created, imagine waking up in the morning. Now, give me a whole day.

"What do you have at breakfast? Does anyone with you in bed? Where do you wake up? Are you on a tropical island? Are you in the middle of Manhattan? Do you have children? What is the first thing you will do? Are you going to an office or not? "Application does.

"It's easy to get lost in big ideas and abstractions, such as" I want a successful business that will become public! "How do you want your daily reality to look like?" Visualizing what a "dream day" really looks like in life will help you feel that visceral feeling and see where you really want your business to go! Olympic, why not you? "she asks.

Put it on paper

Visualize everything in detail. Then write it. Now that you have a clear idea of ​​your version of success, focus on it and build your business to support it.

Molina Niño; o explains, "Too many founders lose sight of their true North. It's understandable, running a business consumes everything. But your goal is not to buy beautiful things or to achieve certain income goals, your goal is the same as everyone else's: happiness. And your perfect and unique day is the best reminder of your true North. To describe it in black and white and to look at yourself somewhere is the best guide for making decisions based on where you really want to find yourself, not the fire that's burning right now. "
