What does failure mean to you?

Does it mean you failed?

See, for me it’s like this…

You can only really fail if you decide to give up for good.

To me, failure is simply a lesson of what not to do going forward.

So let’s say I mess up a blog, or I mess up a promotion, or I mess up on my SEO somewhere, I learn from it and find another way to do it going forward.

Wanna know something – a universal truth if you like…

Successful human beings fail more than anyone else on this planet,
but what separates us to the people who give up
on life, is we don’t ever give up.

We don’t just settle for second best. We don’t just accept failure and call it a day!

We keep going.

We keep pushing on…

We do what we have to do, even when we really don’t feel like doing it…

And in the presence of failure after failure – we keep the same passion, we remain enthusiastic about our work – and we truly believe  in what we are doing – and ultimately – what we are dedicating our life to achieve.

If you don’t realize it yet, it’s time to wake up…

You were put on this planet we call earth with a higher purpose than just watching TV and doing nothing for nobody. You are meant to shine – you are to here accomplish great things. You’re doing yourself and many others a disservice by simply giving up.

I owe all of my current success to all of my failures. And I will owe all of my future successes to all of my failures too. I always fail, but as long as I am living and breathing – I won’t give up.

A true warrior has all his power at the ready…

The true warrior never surrenders!

Failure is small voice in your ear, a quiet voice telling you that you’re heading in the wrong direction. So readjust your sails and adjust the course.

Albert Einstein did not speak until he was 4-years-old and did not read until he was 7. His parents thought he was “sub-normal,” and one of his teachers described him as “mentally slow, unsociable, and adrift forever in foolish dreams.” He was expelled from school and was refused admittance to the Zurich Polytechnic School. He did eventually learn to speak and read. Even to do a little math.  Never Ever Quit!

Henry Ford failed and went broke five times before he succeeded.  Never Quit!

Thomas Edison‘s teachers said he was “too stupid to learn anything.” He was fired from his first two jobs for being “non-productive.” As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” Edison replied, I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.  Never Quit!

Sylvester Stallone had it rough as child.  He was taunted in school and in and out of foster homes.

He didn’t have it much better as an adult.  Not able to earn a steady income, and having to sell his dog for $25.00 to help turn on his electricity, he was faced with many obstacles.

It was only 2 weeks after selling his dog that he wrote the Rocky script in nearly 20 hours straight.  He peddled the script relentlessly.  Finally, being rejected over 1500 times, Stallone was given a nod by United Artists for $125,000.  BUT –  only if Stallone would NOT star in it. Stallone refused.

He was subsequently offered $250,000 and $325,000! He would not accept unless he starred in it. Finally they compromised.  They would allow him to play the role of Rocky, but would only pay him $35,000 and a percentage of profits as a concession. He accepted.

Incidentally, Stallone’s first purchase with his $35,000 windfall was buying his dog back for a whopping $15,000!  Rocky cost $1,000,000 to make. It grossed over $200,000,000!! His sequels grossed over a billion dollars!!  Never Quit!

Listen to Tony Robbins tell the tale:

Many people’s hopes, dreams, and their overall aspirations are never followed through on because they let one failure stop them and call it a day. That’s bull shit.

If you don’t learn now to face your fears and do it anyway, to push on ahead even through multiple failures, you will end up building someone else their dreams, and sadly – you’ll end up doing that until the day you die.

Recently I read that there is only 86,400 seconds in a single day. We all have the exact same time in each day to do as we will with. So it’s on you as to you how you use that time.

I hope you understand you will not leave this earth in your human form, and you won’t be alive in the way you are now – regardless of what you believe.

So what’s stopping you?

Why are you letting fear stop you?

Why are you so afraid to fail?

Why are you wasting your true potential?

It’s time to not only understand yourself, but completely master yourself. The man who fights 1000 battles and wins them all means nothing compared to the man who wins the battle with oneself.

It’s time to man up…

Now is the time to give your dreams and goals everything you have inside you – and it’s time to let that leader who’s just dying to be free inside of you shine. So go forward with a vengeance my friends…

It’s your year, right here, right now – now go and cease it!!! 😉
