With Success Comes Failure

With Success Comes Failure

 

If you want to double your success rate, you have to double your failure rate. If you would say that failure is the opposite of success, you would want to be. 

Picking good stocks, you’re going to have some bad ones. Closing a big deal- you’re going to have some bad ones. The more success you have, the more failures that will inevitably come.

Are you prepared? Think about the last time you failed. How did you handle it? What kind of effect did it have on you?

Did you go out on a date and the person wasn’t interested? If you’re dating and you’re ultimate goal is to find a serious relationship, you’re probably going to fail a bunch.

If you want to get a job, even better than the one you have, can you handle the rejection of a lot of companies shooting you down until you get what you want?
