The Temptation to Fail

If you try hard things, it will be hard. Growing your business means growing yourself. We don’t grow because we are afraid to fail. Consider the definition of failure from John Burroughs:

“A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.”

Refuse to fail. You will always be succeeding then. Remember Thomas Edison and his search for our light bulb:

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

One thought on “The Temptation to Fail

  1. Don:

    Great article for me to see now—-I do feel like I am succeeding and with your support and coaching I feel that my chances for failing have gotten smaller….than if I had chosen to do this myself—and my chances of succeeding are much greater-

    Surely, I know that my ability plays a big part here, but it is great to know that your coaching has opened up my eyes to see things differently—–

    Here’s to your success as well-
