The Moxie Cycle was created to help women find and create the opportunities they’ve been dreaming about. The center of the Moxie Cycle is Growth / Teachability because your ability to learn will directly fuel your ability to create opportunities. One of the reasons teachability is so amazing is that it fuels action. No matter what journey you’re on, you will experience setbacks and obstacles. This is true even for professionals who are looking to improve their skills. The difference between those who fail and those who succeed, has a lot to do with the way a person approaches obstacles. People who fail use obstacles as an excuse to throw in the towel. People who succeed use obstacles as teachable moments.
Dealing with Failure
Growth and teachability refers to the ability to use your failures, setbacks, and obstacles as learning experiences. On your journey to reaching your dreams, you will definitely make some mistakes along the way. Since you’re bound to hit some rough patches on the way to achieving your goals, why not use them as a chance to reevaluate yourself and your skills? You may find out what issues are preventing you from accomplishing what you’ve set out to do. Anything that sets you back in life has a chance to show you where your weaknesses are. Do not miss out on the opportunity to make the right changes! Sometimes we all take detours on the path to success. The important thing is that you get back on that path eventually.
Teachability and Feminism
When the first-wave feminists were fighting for some of the rights women today take for granted, they needed to be teachable. These brave men and women who fought for women’s rights in the beginning needed to view obstacles as learning experiences. Could you imagine if the societal uproar caused the first-wave feminists to completely abandon their cause? Instead of giving up, feminists persisted, continuously looking for more effective ways to educate society and advocate for the rights of women. That’s moxie.
Teachability and the Moxie Cycle
Teachability is a part of the Moxie Cycle because it powers excellence. We could never reach our full potential if we stopped striving every time we wandered off the path or an obstacle appeared. Teachability is about being open to learning new ways of thinking, acting, and striving toward your goals. Teachability allows you to enjoy the journey to your goal instead of feeling miserable until you reach your goal.
