It is common to want to avoid failure. Most people will opt for comfortable and safe rather than put themselves in a position where they might fail.
But failure is a shortcut to success. It is not the only shortcut to success, but it is the best shortcut.
Here are the four reasons you need to fail more often;
- You won’t believe you can create until you have created. Even if your creation is a flop.
- You will appreciate success more when it comes if you have experienced a failure.
- You learn more from failure than you do success. You try to figure out what happened when you fail, but rarely do people try to figure out what happened with a success.
- It builds a better story. That story will build influence with others.
During the discussion about failure in this episode, I share two personal stories of failure. Listen in to find out what happened.
