We started the week with a message about failing in insurance sales. Not the most motivating of words, but let’s explain.
All of us fail. All individuals and organizations fail.
What separates successful people and organizations from the mediocre, is that the successful ones get up quickly.
Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb, had the following to say regarding failure, “If I find 10,000 ways something won’t work, I haven’t failed I am not discouraged because every wrong attempt discarded is often a step forward. Many of life’s failures are experienced by people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
Failure happens on the path to success. You will experience setbacks as you learn what it takes to succeed.
We advise our Mastermind members to “fail forward.” Each day brings with it new opportunities to try new things, fail, learn and improve. To be great, learn to fail fast and fail often — then get up quickly!
