Fail Your Way to Success

Would you rather be a Successful Failure or a Failure Success?
 
The only way you’ll ever be a Failure Success is if you quit trying. Period.

Choose to be a Successful Failure..there is NO other way to Success.

If you have failed like me, and countless others, you are in the company of the “greats”!  The secret is to get back up again.  Here are just a few examples of people who were failure successes.

Henry Ford: While Ford is today known for his innovative assembly line and American-made cars, he wasn’t an instant success. In fact, his early businesses failed and left him broke five times before he founded the successful Ford Motor Company.

Albert Einstein:  Einstein did not speak until he was four and did not read until he was seven, causing his teachers and parents to think he was mentally handicapped, slow and anti-social. Eventually, he was expelled from school and was refused admittance to the Zurich Polytechnic School. It might have taken him a bit longer, but most people would agree that he caught on pretty well in the end, winning the Nobel Prize and changing the face of modern physics.

Thomas Edison: In his early years, teachers told Edison he was “too stupid to learn anything.” Work was no better, as he was fired from his first two jobs for not being productive enough. Even as an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. Of course, all those unsuccessful attempts finally resulted in the design that worked.

Oprah Winfrey: Most people know Oprah as one of the most iconic faces on TV as well as one of the richest and most successful women in the world. Oprah faced a hard road to get to that position, however, enduring a rough and often abusive childhood as well as numerous career setbacks including being fired from her job as a television reporter because she was “unfit for tv.”

How Do You Become a Successful Failure?

1.  Decide to move ahead.  Decide that you are not going to give up.

2.  Start a Journal of Failures only name it “Lessons I’ve Learned”.

3.  Evaluate your failures and turn them into a life lessons.  What did you do wrong?  What did you do right?  What lessons did you learn and how can you apply them to your next step?

4.  Teach others the lessons you learned through a blog post, an ebook (make some money from your failures) or through a series of courses.  There is no better way to learn than to teach others.  All of the best teachers have taught from their failures.  People like to learn from those who can relate to them and who are humble enough to admit they’ve failed.

5.  Congratulate yourself for moving forward and entering the company of the greats.  Reward yourself for moving forward.
