Fall On Your Face
The best learning comes from failure.
Nobody likes to hear this.
Everybody is a sucker for a sure fire, guaranteed system.
The one magic collection of words to say to get them to fall in love with you.
The one magic sales pitch to get anybody to buy.
The one weird trick to lose weight while you sleep.
The magic reframe that will get you playing the guitar like a pro.
Failure is something that used to be fun.
Watch a little kid fall on their face.
Learning by trial and error is built into our brain.
Good Feelings Required
And like all necessary traits, it feels good.
We need energy, energy comes from food.
So eating feels good.
We need to replicate so we need to have sex.
So sex feels good.
We used to be tribal animals and everybody needs to do their part to keep the tribe safe and happy.
Every time we do something that keeps the tribe safe and happy, we get positive social validation from the tribe.
So positive social validation feels good.
All the things we need to do to keep us and our tribe alive feels good.
And because we are born with brains that are not nearly finished, we still need to learn a ton.
And you can only learn from practice.
Old School Learning
And what is practice?
Trial and error.
Since we need to learn, and learning can only come from trial and error practice, trial and error practice feels good.
Or at least it used to.
When you were part of a tribe, EVERYBODY had a vested in your success.
Being helped along the learning path, when EVERYBODY wanted you to do well felt good.
Really, really good.
When you are learning ANYTHING for your own reason, it feels good.
Every time you make a mistake, that is more data of what not to do.
All Data Is Useful
Absolute critical data.
But this has been kind of driven out of us growing up.
By people who DON’T have a vested interest in our success.
Mainly, our competitors.
Those who want what we want.
Girls, jobs, positive validation, etc.
But those who have mad success in life recognize this.
They recognize the need for competition.
Everybody recognizes the need for competition.
That’s why they have P.E. in school.
That’s why communities have little league sports.
It’s part of the growing-up process.
Of playing and losing, and creating a desire to come back stronger next time.
But for some reason, many of us believe there is a shortcut around these necessary obstacles.
Consider this idea.
One By One
You want success more quickly?
Find as many obstacles as you can toward that success.
And crush them, one by one.
