I Hope That You'll Fail Today!

By
Education & Training with Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty

ActiveBrad thinks we should ALL wake up every morning and get excited, motivated, and inspired to fail. This is how we learned to successfully crawl, walk, talk, and run.  Succeeding at ANYTHING in life is not much different.  So go out there and fail at something successfully today so you can succeed at it quicker!

Josef - no such thing as a failure, only an attempt that failed. Almost everything I have learned and shared here on AR, I first failed until I got it right.  Much success to you my friend, even if there's a few failed attempts along the way! :-))

Blog-N-Roll...

I don't know if I've already commented on this or not. Frankly I got tired of reading the comment stream. I figure I'll say something to ensure that eventually this post will be shut down as well. If I fail to shut this down at least I'll be able to say I failed well :)

TLW...ROAR!

TLW - 10-15 comments or so to go, let's see if we have it fixed before this post hits 155, I think that was the temporary cutoff.  I'm hoping they'll have that issue resolved in the next day or so. Thanks.  Maybe this was a subconcious post? :-O  Fear not, if we fail, we'll keep trying for success!  :-)

Thank you for the post, as I sat today wondering if I should stay in Real Estate or venture back to the land of W-2.  This post reminded me to pick myself up and get over it, go out there and learn from my recent trials and challenges and yes failures.  This is one of my favorite pictures of all times, I am scared to death of heights and can't even imagine doing this. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones.

That's certainly putting a spin on it!  I guess I need to get some good sleep so I can fail more at everything I need to do tomorrow.

1st tghask = Call BofA about their Short-sale module not accepting attachements.  ughhh!

PS - Come to think of it... Now there's a corporate culture of failing to get it right.  They MUST be VERY close to success at this point! :)
