Have you ever had a big goal, dream, or vision about something you wanted to accomplish?
Or how about something that seemed so far out there that is seemed impossible…
And it got you so excited that you couldn’t sleep at night?
Only to never get done, because you were afraid of the possible outcome of FAILURE!
Nothing makes me more sad than to see someone waste away potential because they were too afraid to at least TRY.
Eventually, we all will fail at something. It’s how life works.
Some of the most successful people in the business and sports world failed numerous times before getting it right. For example…
- Steve Jobs got fired from the company (Apple) that HE started!
- Thomas Edison had 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at creating the light bulb before FINALLY getting the right one. The rest is history.
- Henry Ford, failed went bankrupt 5 different times before finally succeeding.
- Michael Jordan was CUT from his high school basketball team and went on to become one of the greatest players to ever play the game of basketball!
The moral of the story here? These guys NEVER gave up and neither should you!! If you have ambitions and big dreams, you can be as successful as you want to be. You just have to have a never-ending desire, passion, and the will to do whatever it takes EVEN when you get knocked down and fail.
I have seen plenty of them in my lifetime and every time I fail I look at it as a positive learning experience versus a negative event.
It’s all about MINDSET. With the proper mindset in place, you should always view failures as a way to learn and get better.
No go out there, start trying, and embrace failures – it’s the only way you will grow!
