Failure: The Key To Success
Are you unhappy with the results you are getting in your dating, work or social life?
If things aren’t going the way you would like, then chances are you aren’t failing enough. Yes, I did say failing. This advice may sound backwards, but it is one of the keys to finding extreme success. A problem that a lot of people have is that they are afraid to make mistakes or be embarrassed. This has got to stop.
I’m not saying that you should go crazy and put your reputation or job at risk. Don’t be stupid about this. But keep your eyes open for risks you can take that wouldn’t be the end of the world if they didn’t work out. Ask a stranger for a phone number. Make a suggestion to change something at work. Start something new. Reach for the stars.
Who cares if your business idea fails, or if you get turned down for a date, or if a similar disappointment happens to you? That’s life. Don’t let the fear of failure paralyze you. Many of the most successful people in the world failed many times over on the road to success. The people who are most successful don’t worry about what might happen if things don’t work out perfectly. They handle it. In fact, they often even embrace failure.
So, if you wish you could find a little more success in your life, get out and fail. Be daring. Take some risks. Accept the fact that everything may not work out how you hoped. Just be sure you don’t sacrifice class and dignity in the process.
