In the article “How to Use Failure to Succeed” by Daniel Wood, he comments on the fact that some people are afraid of failing. “Most people are afraid of failure. Some so afraid that they can’t attempt anything that involves the risk of failure” (Wood). Being afraid of failing, blocks an individual from moving forward in progress.

Once you have identified what you want and what you need to do to get it... you need to be disciplined enough to stick to the plan. A lot of people know what is expected of them, yet rather than making the necessary changes will fall into old habits and then hope it all falls into place.

In “Self-Reliance” Emerson’s goal is to get us to ignore the voices who try to change who we really are, and embrace the inner voices that represent
Leave any prejudice aside, so no one feels disrespected, encouraging them to act aggressive towards another team member. A way to help with this and achieve a sense of safety within the environment is to establish set roles. Establish roles and lines of authority so that boundaries are set and no one feels the need to disrespect one another. It looks as though a lot of arguing may come from lack of respect between people in the group along with lack of understanding. Having and respecting roles is key when it comes to: A clearer expectation of how decisions are going to be
However, when people fail to use their common sense in life situations, they end up making bad decisions, and it becomes difficult to fit in the society. Making of wrong decisions does not make an individual a failure but failing to learn from the wrong decision and repeating the same mistake does. All human beings have the ability to improve their lives no matter where they are now; it is necessary to know where they would want to be later in future. To change something, people should learn to apply common sense in different situations and get to understand the reasons why set plans fail and measures needed to be taken to move up the ladder and avoid getting back to the same

For instance, a goal should be time-based, for years I used to set goals or tasks and never put a deadline or timeframe, so I keep procrastinating until I lose track of time and eventually finishing the task in as imperfect way or not finishing it at all. So after being exposed to SMART, now each time I set a new goal or task, I directly put a deadline or timeframe. Another amazing thing from the lecture is important/urgent matrix to
I blamed why I kept falling on a lack of control, but this was not completely true. It was more of a lack of confidence.
