The Path To Success – Is Through Failure

| February 27, 2012 | 0 Comments

   “You don’t succeed your way to success, you fail your way to success.”    That was the topic of one of Gary Keller’s Session’s at the Family Reunion earlier this month.

“Everybody on this planet has been a loser in life at SOME TIME,” said Keller.   The trick is not to stop, especially not while you are losing.   That’s the only way you actually fail.

The depth of the concept can be difficult to grasp, unless you look beneath the veneer.  R.H. Macy, J.K Rowling,  Soichiro Honda, Milton Hershey, and F.W. Woolworth, were all REAL people, with real failures—lots of them, before finding phenomenal success.

Feeling sorry for yourself because you were rejected?  Why Colonel Sanders SECRET recipe was rejected over 1,000 times!—Before it became famous chicken.

Upset because you were criticized?  Well,  Walt Disney was turned away for lacking imagination. 

Depressed because you are carrying too much debt?  Harry Truman worked for years to pay off debt.  13 years to be exact!

No matter how dire your situation may be, you can work your way out of it and become great.  Every success story has done just that.  No one can determine how big you think or how high you go, but you!  Why not make 2012 the year, you decide to go for it?   Fear not, failing your way to success.   The reality is—it’s the only way to get there!
