Failure First-Aid: How To Embrace The ‘F’ Word



Description

Through out our lives we are expected to achieve, win, be the greatest, succeed! But, who is teaching us how to fail? Failure is a dirty ‘F’ word in our society, yet we’re failing all the time. We build so much shame around failing, but it actually takes more courage to fail than it does to succeed. We need to learn how to embrace failure and make it our friend. Buddha tells us that pain is inevitable and suffering is optional. When it comes to failure, why do we choose suffering? Even after we are rejected or criticized, we continue to pick at our failure wounds. This workshop will teach you failure first-aid.

About Dara Simkin

Dara Simkin is a certified Life Coach, but prefers to be seen as someone who loves supporting the greater good. She’s not quite sure who thought calling it ‘Life Coaching’ was a very good idea, but she hasn’t really bothered with trying to come up with a cheesier title like Agent of Change. She believes self-development should be approachable & accessible without blowing a bunch of smoke up your bum. Personal growth is about openness, curiosity, creativity & playfulness. She’s grateful to be able to share her passion with others and she’s done workshops with corporates, yogis and grade six students.

Her passion for personal-development started more than a decade ago, when she started searching for, and discovering, her own spiritual path – having had a rather confusing religious upbringing. She began to pave her own way, which soon turned in to her becoming a facilitator and personal development nerd.

You can find her at Melbourne Natural Wellness on Collins St and be sure to follow her on Instagram to find out when her next workshop is – @darasimkin and check out her web site darasimkin.com (she made it herself).  She’s also American and loves pizza.
