Take it from someone who’s built multiple companies from the ground up…
You will fail ... a lot.
Every single successful person that you can possibly think of has experienced massive failure in one way or another.
Nobody becomes successful the minute they try to do something new…
That’s because failure is a necessary component to developing the skills and experience to achieve greatness.
It will tell you everything you shouldn't do if you want to become successful…
After all, failure is the greatest teacher.
The fear of failure is instilled by society.
Yet, we learn the importance of failure at a very young age.
When you were first learning to walk...
Did you fall the first time, and then just decide that you were going to crawl for the rest of your life?
Of course not.
So, why do you fear failing at something new?
If you actually think you’ll be successful in anything without failing along the way (usually several times), you’re arrogant.
People spend their entire lives working to become skilled at what they do...
...and you think you’re going to kill it on your first try without facing any problems?
That’s naive, and extremely insulting to the people who have actually done anything significant in life.
Failure is going to happen whether you want it to or not…
You just have to learn how to shrug it off, use it as a lesson, and move on.
The longer you dwell on your failure ... the less time you’re able to spend moving forward.
There is nothing to be scared of.
Most people think of failure as if it’s a horrible and scary thing.
If you have these beliefs, you have to start thinking about failure differently.
You should be looking at failure as the greatest teacher.
When you reframe the failure as an investment in your education and knowledge base for whatever skill, craft, or outcome you’re going for...
You will truly unlock the benefits of failure.
A huge part of success is figuring out what doesn’t work…
It’s a natural part of the process.
Knowing what not to do is just as important as knowing what to do.
The more experience you accumulate, in business & in life ... the more you realize that failure will help you progress in other ways.
Failure provides a scenario that you can learn from every time…
But you can only learn if you’re willing to fail.
You have to be willing to look stupid…
You have to be willing to get laughed at…
It’s part of the process.
When you start treating your failures as part of the success equation…
It becomes so much easier to extract the lesson and keep moving forward.
Everyone wants to find the bulletproof plan to “make it” without the pain and failure.
Let me be the first to tell you with 100% certainty...
It doesn’t exist.
Understand that your failures are gifts.
The gift is a lesson that will only help you get stronger…
...and more equipped for the future.
The only way you’ll ever be a true failure is if you don’t get back up, brush yourself off, and move on.
So here’s my advice…
Don’t sweat your failures.
Understand that they are necessary, and they are shaping you into the person you need to become in order to be truly successful in life.
Learn the lesson … and move on.
Failure is the greatest teacher of them all.
We've all heard people parade around and talk about how success is all about being "1% better everyday" and "It's me vs me".
...and while you should focus on improving yourself and worrying about your own situation...
No matter how many times you say "it's me vs me" ... it doesn't change the fact that you're in competition with other people.
The value you provide and the skills you have over those [...]
Discipline and mental toughness are two of the most important skills you need to become successful in business and life.
They aren't optional.
Ask any highly successful person that you know, and they will agree.
But, what does it take to build the mental toughness and discipline [...]
What do most people do when they see someone who's more successful than them?
They try to rationalize it...
Only, their thoughts aren't rational ... they're irrational.
Almost always, these people try to justify the reason why they're not as successful by pointing the finger at luck, talent, circumstance, or some other [...]
