We’ve been talking a little about the Book, called you2 by Price Pritchett. This tiny book contains 18 principles that can help you have a quantum leap your life.
Today I want to talk about his principle titled Seek Failure.
Now I know this is going to seem a little counter intuitive, but it is essential to a quantum leap. The minute we say, “Seek failure,” a part of us freaks out! “No, I don’t want failure! I want success!” But guess what… you learn to walk by falling down. You learn to ride a bike by being wobbly.
Unless you’re willing to have some failure, you won’t find success. In fact, those who are most successful in any sport are also the ones who are the field and not doing it perfectly, and often having a very high strikeout rating while they’re having a very high home run record at the same time.
This is what a quantum leap looks like in terms of seeking failure. According to Price Pritchett,
Quantum leaps demand a willingness to make mistakes.
You cannot hole up in the safe zone of behavior where you have beaten the odds of failing. An unwillingness to encounter defeat or run into problems outlaws quantum leaps. Unless you allow yourself to make mistakes, to fail, you will never have the opportunity to test the limits of what you truly are capable of accomplishing.
You must realize that if you’re experiencing no difficulties, problems, or pain, you probably have aimed too low. You’ve leveled off in your growth and achievement. You probably are far from reaching your limits.
Everything looks like a failure in the middle. Don’t give up because you have a failure. Don’t give up because it didn’t go the way you wanted. If you’ve failed in love, you’ve failed in money, or you’ve failed in something…
Your story is not over. It could be a dark chapter, but it’s not your whole book. You are writing your book, and you get to determine how it will end. If it hasn’t ended the way you wanted, then it’s not finished. Keep going and you will do it.

p.s. Go looking for failure… and then use it. Don’t interpret problems or breakdowns as proof that you should quit, but instead take them as evidence of your growth and improvement.
