Here’s the thing, there’s nothing wrong with failure itself…it’s the way you handle it that makes it a negative or positive experience.
Babe Ruth, the grandiose home run star of the baseball world was famous for striking out more than most. He took more chances … and as a result he hit more home runs than anyone else at that time.
And it’s not just Babe Ruth!
Take a look at the list of baseball stars famous for their high level of performance – many of them are at the top of baseball’s most strikeouts list.
When I say now is the time to fail, what I’m really saying is …
… Don’t be scared to take some chances.
Don’t curl up in a ball planning your master strategy to dominate the world … get out and start doing it.
From a consulting perspective many consultants often feel they’ll hold off marketing their services, or spending a little extra money on a client or a project. They want to wait until they get a bit more in the bank before they take that long ‘planned’ step.
Let me tell you, that perfect moment you’re waiting for … it doesn’t exist!
The ultra-successful people all around you … they’re no smarter than you are.
They just take more chances … work their asses off and when they ‘fail’ it’s not failure in their minds. It’s a learning experience.
They take what they’ve learned … adjust their approach and keep going forward. Then one day, bam! They get it and knock it out of the park.
So what are you waiting for?
