Failure Is Not An Option, It Is Required

Failure is required? Have you lost your mind! Yes (on both counts), in order to excel and be successful, you will need to fail forward, fail often, learn the lessons, continue making adjustments and taking action, and then you will succeed.
Recently I listened to billionaire Bill Bartmann talk about his failures and what he learned.
Anyone looking to have more success in their life must pay attention right now.
Failures are not fatal nor are they permanent, they are just an experience.
Realize that people who have contributed the most to our society are people who have failed the most.
Think of Thomas Edison and the Wright Brothers.
Do you think they got their inventions right the first time? Of course not! They experienced failure after failure after failure.
But their successes were greater than their failures.
I think everyone would agree that Abraham Lincoln achieved great success in his presidency by bringing an end to slavery and keeping the United States a single nation.
But if you look back at his life it was filled with many significant failures.
Lincoln had a nervous breakdown in his twenties.
His business failed.
He ran for public office about 6 times and lost.
Imagine if he had stopped trying and given up because of his failures.
He pressed through his failures, learned the lessons, made adjustments and rose to the highest public office, President of the United States.
Failures are not fatal nor are they permanent, they are just an experience.
Here are 7 things Bill Bartmann learned about failure:
  1. We will all fail, everyone will fail.
    So realize that if everyone has and will fail, then failure really is not any big deal, we just make it a big deal with all our drama.
  2. Why do you feel our libraries are full of books on how to succeed? (maybe because we all experience failure)
  3. Most failures are avoidable.
  4. Success and failure are very subjective terms, two sides of the same coin.
    One person views something as a success and another will view it as a failure.
    Consider movie critics.
    One critic gives a movie a rating of one while another critic gives it a four star rating.
    Two sides of the same coin.
  5. Both success and failure are temporary.
  6. Any failure can be overcome.
  7. Failure is not a dead end it is just a detour, so do not stop, just find a different way to achieve success.
Smart people learn from their mistakes and successes.
Really smart people learn from mistakes and successes other people have made.
Bill Bartmann also revealed his secrets to overcoming failure and achieving success.
These ten secrets could be life changing.
