I have made a career out of spectacularly failing and loving it!
Failure for me gives me an adrenaline rush- it means that you are stretching yourself, it means that you are pushing the boundaries that exist in the world, it means that you are a step nearer to that ultimate success that will capture the world :)
Some people don't like the word failure, for me it is not the word that is important, it is the mindset...if you treat it positively then you there is no failure involved...just growth. I always think of Dad telling me about a business person he met early doors who said to him....."You can't write....you are dyslexic! You are joking, you will never succeed in business"
Dad turned to him and said "Success is about ideas and bringing ideas to life, you don't need words...you need vision" .....Dad was right and remember
Success comes through persistence....
- Chuck Yeager threw up on his first flight and swore he was not made for air travel - he later became the first man to break the sound barrier!
- Charles Carlson developed photocopying in 1938 - 21 years before Xerox produced the first copier.
- George Burns was 80 when he won his first Oscar.
If success was easy, everyone would be successful. Success comes through perseverance...
