How To Turn Your Bad Experience Into Gain

Bad experienceEveryone has had bad experience in their life, you have got yours, I have got mine. It doesn't have to be a traumatic experience. It could be  negative experiences such as, inexperience, incompetence, disappointment, conflict, change, relationship loss etc.

Bad experience  also happens when you expect instant success  in your network marketing venture and got disappointed because of a reason or the other. Experience in this case, serves as not making the same mistake again.

If you want your bad experience to keep you not only from doing  the same mistake but also to lead you to significant growth. I suggest you embrace the following five actions.

1.    Choose a Positive Life Stance

The way you look at things in life is very important to your growth, whether they tend to be optimistic or pessimistic, cheerful or gloomy, trusting or suspicious, friendly or reserved, brave or timid, generous or stingy, giving or selfish. If you can maintain a positive life stance, you put yourself in the best position to manage bad experience and turn them into positive growth.
I have come to adopt a positive life stance because I believe it gives me the best chance to succeed while putting me in the best position to help others succeed.
Example; I follow these thinking.

  • Life is filled with good and bad.
  • Some of the good and bad I cannot control – that’s life.
  • If I have a positive life stance the good and the bad will become better.
  • If I have a negative life stance the good and the bad will become worse.
  • Therefore I choose a positive life stance

Remember, most of the time in life, we get what we expect, so why would you choose the worst? No you Don't.

2.    Embrace and Develop Your Creativity

The people who make the most of bad experience are the ones who find creative ways to meet them, being able to see possibilities within their problems. Author Neale Donald Walsh asserted, Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. I believe that creativity begins at the end of your comfort zone too, because when you feel pain of bad experience, thinking positive is creativity, this can give you the opportunity to turn that pain into gain. When you have bad experience, instead of letting it discourage you or make you angry, try to find a way to let it prompt your creativity.

3.    Embrace the Value of Bad Experiences

It’s difficult to meet the negative experience in the moment with the positive mind-set.  However if you can do that, you will always be able to learn something from it. Remember, where there is no struggle, there is no progress. Facing difficulty is inevitable. Learning from them is optional. Whether you learn is based if you understand that difficulties present opportunities to learn and treat them accordingly.

4.    Make Good Changes after learning from Bad Experience

Often in life, it takes bad experience for us to face the changes we need to make in our lives. The Law of pain, It gives us the opportunity to turn our lives around. A bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you fail to make a turn. If you find yourself in the midst of bad experience, remind yourself that you are on the cusp of an opportunity to change and grow, depending on how you react to your experience and the changes you make as a result. Allow your emotions to be the catalyst for change, think through how to change to make sure you are making good choices, and then take action.

5.    Take Responsibility for Your Life

painful experienceYou must to take responsibility for your life and the choices you make. People who overcome bad experience don’t want to be label as victim, they just want to take responsible of their life and move forward.

They don’t say what happen to them is the worst thing in the world is. They say what happen to the me was pretty bad, but other people are worse off and I won’t give up.
 They do not wallow in self-pity If you start feeling sorry for yourself, you will not be able to take responsibility for yourself and life.

No matter what you have gone through in life or what you are currently going through, you have the opportunity to learn and grow from it. I know it’s difficult to see opportunity in midst of pain, but it is there. Many network marketers have had bad experience, but never stopped them from moving on, you can do the same, take responsibility of your life and move on.
