|FAILURE IS SOMETHING TO EMBRACE!!

Awhile back there was a stupid article on yahoo news.
It was about 7 "overrated" kinds of businesses that should be
avoided by anyone looking to start a business in the gasping job
market, and was obviously written by someone who has never even run
a lemonade stand before, much less a real business.
But, it was also kind of useful, too.
Here's what I mean:
The article basically outlined 7 different business types and
described all the reasons why they tend to fail. In other words, it
was more about protecting people from the bitter sting of
failure... instead of succeeding.
Which was really kind of ironic.
Because failure is a requirement for success.
And like it or not, without failure you can't truly succeed, so
avoiding it pretty much makes you dead in the water right out the
Hey, don't blame me.
That's just how it is.
In fact, you want to know something funny?
I've met (and worked with) some serious "power players" in
business. Not just on the Internet, but offline biz owners, too.
I'm talking about people who sometimes make more scratch in a DAY
than the average person makes in 6 months toiling away for the
corporate beast masters.
And you know what all these people have in common?
They started out as miserable FAILURES.
And I mean BIG time failures.
The kind of failures people tend to laugh or snicker at in secret.
And yet, I'd bet green money every single one of them would tell
you they learned FAR more from their failures... than their
You MUST fail to succeed.
And usually, the FASTER you fail, the FASTER success happens.
Anyway, it was amusing how the article author -- with all his fancy
credentials, who writes business articles for prestigious papers
and is invited on all the glamorous business TV shows -- could miss
this little zinger.
Failing is NOT something to hide from.
It's something to embrace!!!!
Join something where everyone one wins even if you have failed before.

|You are right Rory. The faster we fail the quicker we succeed but only if we take the time to learn from our failures. Each failure brings with it an equivalent seed of success. Besides, true failure is not when we fail, it's when we give up. As long as we get back up again, we'll do fine.
|Good One, Rory. Thomas Edison said, "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." Why check out one of my blogs? I am sharing this on Face Book.
|Failure is just a learning curve for being successful on the internet.|
|Without our failures we wouldn't be where we are today as a company. It is our belief if you can't admit to failure and learn from it, there is no way you can be the success your aiming for. |
|And like it or not, without failure you can't truly succeed
