Overcome Failure to See the Light of Success -Avontix

There are two probabilities of results when we do something. One is we succeed, the other is we do not succeed. The second one is usually referred to as a failure. Generally, failure is given a negative image, but failures can be good for us when we take them in a positive way and learn from their teachings. As the saying goes – failure is the stepping stone to success, failure should be recognized as a process of learning and try not to fear failure. It is not something we can avoid and it should be accepted gracefully when encountered. If we dread failure too much, we will lack the courage to start something new or take an initiative. If that happens, we cannot make any progress in our lives. We can overcome the fear of failure and make it our stepping stone to success by doing these:

  • Accepting failure: The first thing we have to do is accepting that failure is a part of the process. When the going is tough, we have to understand that it is not the end of the road. We have to imbibe some positive thinking and learn from our experience. This does not mean in any sense, that we can be lethargic and try to fail. It means that in days of difficulty, it is alright to get disappointed and bounce back again.
  • Remembering your life is not a failure: It is common for all of us to feel very disheartened and frustrated when we fail at something. That is perfectly okay. But, we should remember, we have failed in one endeavor, not in our life. If we start thinking our life is a failure, nothing will work for us ever. So, we should stop making ourselves a failure.
  • Keep reminding this is not the end: We should constantly remind ourselves that this is not the last of our life. We will have many more chances to prove our worth and succeed. We should understand that there is no rule that if we fail today, we will fail the next time as well. We should keep on doing our work and the failure will not last for long. Being positive that this phase too shall pass, will work wonders.
  • Being constructive: As we have discussed earlier, failure should be taken as a lesson. We should be ready to take the valuable teaching from the failed attempt and use it in a constructive way to improve ourselves the next time. Few thoughts like – What is that I can learn from this? How to avoid the same kind of mistakes will help us move forward in life.
  • Realizing that success does not come easy: One thing we ought to realize is that nothing in this world comes to us easily. We expect things to happen instantly and we cannot wait for things to take their own pace. In such a scenario, when failure strikes us it hurts us really bad. We should embrace the truth that success will come with hard work, it will take its own sweet time and failure is a part and parcel of the game. It is not wrong to say that successful people are the ones who have seen the most failures.

We should accept the fact that setbacks and failures are unavoidable and we have to learn managing adverse situations and learn to bounce back to achieve success.

Healthcare Documentation – A Promising Career Option -Avontix

Picture courtesy:
With ever-changing legal and medical requirements, it is mandatory that all the procedures and processes performed by healthcare practitioners are recorded accurately not just for evidential purposes but for future references also. However, it is not possible for the physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to keep documenting each and every process performed by them in a written format. Hence, physicians take advantage of the technological advancements and record the procedures performed by them in audio files using an electronic device. Although these can serve as records, it is not easy to comprehend a physician’s voice file when the information is required. So, these voice files are transcribed into electronic documents and this process of transcribing is called medical transcription or healthcare documentation.  
The voice files given by the physicians for healthcare documentation include their office visits, emergency room …

Continuous Improvement – The Secret of Self Improvement -Avontix

What is that we typically do for self-improvement? Set a large goal; try to accomplish that in the least possible time. At the outset, this seems perfectly alright but does not work in practicality. It often leads to exhaustion, frustration and failure. This pattern needs to change; instead, we should aim for simple path of continuous improvement by slowly fine-tuning our everyday behavior and habits. Continuous improvement means, making minor changes and adjustments in our everyday life with the anticipation of a remarkable change over a period of time.

It’s not that easy to believe that small changes can lead to big shifts of improvement because we can’t see any notable accomplishments on a daily basis, BUT IT WORKS. Minor alterations don’t show results at that particular point of time but add up over a period, hence, we can see the results only in the long run; in fact, it is possible that we may happen that we may not even recognize it initially.

How do we go about it?
