About the Episode:

You can’t have success without failure. In order to succeed, you have to fail and learn from those failures. It’s reported that Walt Disney was fired from his newspaper job for lacking creativity. Not only is that shocking, it’s inspiring!

You Will Fail

It’s almost guaranteed you will fail. Entrepreneurs tend to be scared that their products and services will fail when they launch. Guest what… they probably will, and that’s okay! Through the failure, you’ll realize what you can and should do differently and better.

Tweak Your Connections

One factor in succeeding is connecting with the right people. And as you continue to connect with others, you might be meeting really interesting people, but you might find there’s a disconnect between your connections and closing a sale. Tweak who it is you’re connecting with and your method of connecting with them until you find the sweet spot.

You Have to Plan

In the path to success, you have to have a plan. A plan is important, because, when you fail, you need to know what to change. If you have no plan, it’s hard, or potentially impossible, to know what went wrong. With a plan, you can pinpoint what went wrong and make adjustments.

Failure is part of life. It’s also critical to succeeding. Learn to start embracing failure so you can find success.
