F'd Up - The UPside of Failure provides insight into why some people view failures as opportunities, a necessary step toward success while others simply quit or have an aversion to the effort required to push through.
In my first book, Undefeatable, the message is clear: failure is inevitable. Don't fear them. The upside to failure describes the lessons that emerge out of the failure and the new skills we acquire from them.
Did you know that failure is information that can spark ideas and enhance our overall learning and development? There is a misconception that failures are inherently bad, fatal to our career and counterproductive to achieving results. It's a paradigm shift that requires us to have a "growth mindset" not a "fixed mindset." These uncomfortable and often embarrassing missteps can promote creative problem-solving skills. To remove the sting associated with failure, we must first acknowledge and accept our failures and then ask the tough question - "why did I fail?"
The upside is the “benefit of opening up a new pathway of unexplored strength and resolve which would have not otherwise been realized had we not experienced the failure in the first place." Start making a shift and you will:
- Discover the unforeseen benefits of failure including problem solving skills and critical thinking skills.
- Adapt and learn how to function in a society that does not openly embrace failure and praises intelligence over effort.
- Use recovery strategies and explore new ideas and ways of thinking.
- Learn the elements of a "growth mindset" and start thriving on challenges to view failures as a springboard for growth.
What people are saying:
"This book is educational and inspiring! Tiana has carefully targeted young adults and emerging leaders, preparing each one by proclaiming there are tangible benefits when we experience failure. The bonus curriculum adds tremendous value for the reader." - Dean Rick Hodge, Workforce Development, Los Angeles Southwest College
"Tiana helps us to understand that failure is the 'secret sauce' of reinventing ourselves to live a life we love. This book gives us permission to see the opportunity in failure and not the obstacle." - Betty LaMarr, CEO/Founder EmpowHer Institute
