6/9/2021 Tip: Accept the Idea of Failure

Today’s Quote

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
~ Steve Jobs.


Today’s Tip

While you shouldn’t dwell on the possibility of failure, you must accept it. If you don’t, you may be striving in your business to prevent failure, rather than striving to achieve success. The latter will always help you achieve better results.

It turns out that actual failure is never as bad as we think it will be. Specifically, research shows that when people fear the worst and it happens, it’s not as bad as they thought it would be, and they recover quickly.

Many entrepreneurs have failed before achieving success. Milton Hershey, P.T. Barnum, Henry Ford, Walt Disney — all of these super successful entrepreneurs failed big at one point in their careers and had to claim bankruptcy.

That’s why I love this quote from Phil Knight, the co-founder and chairman of Nike, Inc. – “people only remember your last success.” So, even if you’ve failed before, or fail again, as long as you end up on top, that’s all people will remember.
