So many people believe they are failing right now. The fear of failure can be totally debilitating. Yet, failure — whether it is perceived or true – is often the key to success. Just ask countless entrepreneurs how many times they thought it was all over, but the next “failure” ultimately led to their success. Dr. G, Brian, and Jeannette give their personal perspectives and insights on failure. They are joined by author and speaker Thom Singer, who shares two key pieces of advice when it comes to “plan b,” especially when you don’t have one. This panic of “what’s next” is pervasive — and right now many people feel they are not able to do anything right. Others may feel that the last year has been a total failure across the board, without anything to show except struggle. Whatever the sense of failure might be, it impacts our self-esteem, relationships and any chance of future success. Find out what you can do today and the real opportunity failure may provide you.
About the Podcast
This is part four of a limited YouTube Series co-hosted by Deborah Gilboa, MD (aka Dr. G), Jeannette Kaplun, and Brian Copeland that tackles the mental distress many of us are experiencing right now. Normalization of the struggle each person faces. Empathy for the pain, fear, confusion, anger, sadness, isolation that are present for so many each day. Strategies for moving forward in unprecedented times and circumstances. It aims to be a welcoming, approachable conversation that honors emotion while offering real life solutions to the pain and fears people are experiencing right now in an incredibly vulnerable time known as 2020, that is only going to be amplified during the holidays. The three hosts strive to give people the tools to talk about what’s happening and to reach out – for themselves and for anyone about whom they’re worried. In a lively, yet informative conversation, audiences can learn and laugh a little, and look at some tough realities — from Covid fatigue and political unease to economic woes and feelings of isolation– so everyone knows they’re not alone and their experience matters. They matter.
