In 2021 I decided to commit sharing more failure stories on social media and less of “Look, my dear network how well I am doing!”
So here is my second story:
Last year I had an opportunity to give my first paid keynote speech. This was very exciting for me and the Integrated Villages NGO who received the payment.
As typical for me, I was preparing a lot for this presentation and felt confident with my story line. However, at some point while presenting I was waiting for my 'killer' slide to show-up.
But it didn't!!! This was the time when I realized that I was sharing an older version of the presentation. :)
Although I didn't mention it to the audience, I did lose my flow for a while. And the worst was how I felt about it - a complete failure with such a stupid mistake.
Lesson learnt - be more empathetic towards yourself and lower your 'High Achiever' saboteur. Nobody is perfect and it's okay to make mistakes. And of course always pre-check whether you are sharing the latest version of your file ;)
I would love to hear your failure stories too! Please share it in Comments.
