Are you afraid of FAILING?
Don't be afraid of failure!
In the past (and still sometimes today), I've been afraid of failure. But I recently read about a new way to look at SUCCESS and FAILURE.
We all know it took 10,000 times before Thomas Edison invented the light bulb. But what if he had quit trying after 9,999? Would we be in the dark? ;)
Mr. Edison learned 2 valuable lessons: 1) what not to do again and 2) he was getting closer to his goal.
Failure tells us what won't work, so we can find another way to do something right.
Have you ever heard marketing experts say that success in marketing comes down to 'Test, test, test'? How many times have you written a real estate ad and not have anyone call you, while other times, your phone just rings off the hook? If an ad is not working right, keep tweaking it to make it a little better each time and then one day you'll hit the jackpot.
Motivational speaker, Jim Rohn, says "Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better." What he meant by that was - the more skills we acquire through practice and repetition, the easier it will be for us to achieve our objectives. Success is measured by the amount of failure you endure. Double your rate of failure and you'll increase your success.
So keep failing your way to success!
