People are always dying to know what the “secret” to success is. Well I can tell you this, it’s not always a secret. Most of the time it comes from the many failures we face along the way. I mean, I for one would love to step into dog duty and have it turn to gold, but I don’t have that kind of luck. So let’s dive right into some of the failures that you might just have to deal with to reach your greatest success.
Ouch, this one is pretty rough. But have you ever had a really small balance in your bank account. Perhaps you even reached negative numbers. (Don’t worry, I won’t say a word). We have all hit the ground. The only positive in this situation: Learning just how important money is. Training ourselves to be cautious when spending. These are things that must cross our minds in order to find success. Or we will just spend any incoming cash until it runs out.
An Awful Job
You know how some old person always says “it’ll put hair on your chest”? Well these kinds of jobs actually do and they make your go grey too. But, hey you live and you learn. How else do you suppose finding the perfect career, business and the perfect amount of success? Give things a try. Learn how to really work and get along with others. A huge part of business is teamwork and leadership. On top of that, a fantastic work ethic is necessary.
When It’s Your Fault
Failing at a relationship. What a junk time in your life huh? Well it is much worse when it is your fault. So much easier when the other person is a jerk and makes the mistakes. But when you do and you really care about the other person. Ouch! It teaches you a thing or two for sure. For example, you learn how to take responsibility. And that’s a toughie.
Start by asking yourself what it is that you truly want. What does life have to offer you and just as important, what is it that you want to add to life? Think about these things and work hard. And hey…if you failed any of the above, it’s all good. You might just be on your way to success!
Live long and prosper,
