Watch this video closely, you will find out what men do to get the results they want.
They fail into success.
Greatness has never come to a man who tries once. Will you call this guy a winner? I suppose you’ll say yes. Hey, this guy failed several times, in fact, his attempts were highly risky but yet he continued failing until he was successful. He kept on trying knowing what he wanted. To him, his goal worth all the risky trials.
Most people have been inspired by this video, I’m inspired too, he has become an internet sensation today, and a global influence by just this video. You too can do even better.
How great and successful do you want to become in this business?
Lets analyse this with a true life event. You set out to achieve a personal goal within a month without supervision – no boss to tract your performance, no query…you are YOUR OWN BOSS. After the deadline, for one reason or the other, you failed to reach your target, and you completely retire from your personal goal with, ‘it can never been achieved’, mentality, says who?
That is not the attitude to success. The attitude is: you must try, fail, try again, fail, try one more time, fail, try again, continue trying… until you succeed. You don’t say it’s over until it’s over. You only think of stopping when you succeed, because when you succeed, i doubt if you would want to quit. You don’t too comfortable;
Success empowers you to do the most remarkable thing you can imagine.
In life, we don’t get what we want, we get what we deserve. The guy above deserved that success. Fail until you succeed.
As mentioned in Success Magazine Editorial, “The sweetest victory is the one that’s most difficult. The one that requires you to reach down deep inside, to fight with everything you’ve got, to be willing to leave everything out there on the battlefield—without knowing, until that do-or-die moment, if your heroic effort will be enough. Society doesn’t reward defeat, and you won’t find many failures documented in history books.” …. “The exceptions are those failures that become steppingstones to later success. Such is the case with Thomas Edison, whose most memorable invention was the light bulb, which purportedly took him 1,000 tries before he developed a successful prototype. “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” a reporter asked. “I didn’t fail 1,000 times,” Edison responded. “The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”
What is interesting is that the two tech giants of our century, Jack Ma of Alibaba and Jeff Bezos of Amazon, both of whom are worth billions of dollars, have a very different mindset to failure: they are tolerant of it and embrace it.
Jack Ma explains that all the failures of; not getting a job in KFC, 24 people applied and 23 got it, or not getting a job as a server in a hotel when his cousin did, or not being able to get into Harvard while he applied 10 times; all prepared him for the path he took on as a CEO.
On the Other Hand, Jeff Bezos believed that being tolerant of failure is a big part of the culture at Amazon and is responsible for its big success. He states in Business Insider, that if you do not innovate then, then you are leaving a lot on the table. In a letter to shareholders, he said
“Failure comes part and parcel with invention. It’s not optional. We understand that and believe in failing early and iterating until we get it right.”
What Important lesson Should We Learn?
As Dr. Anna Powers puts it, What this teaches us, is that although failure can be painful and although we as people we have developed an aversion to it, it actually can allow us to unlock great potential. But in order to do so, we have to change our mindset on failure. Instead of seeing as something detrimental to success, we have to see it as a tool for success, a tool that helps us refine our path and allows us to learn what works and what does not. In such a way, we can see it as a normal part of the innovation of our own lives, not as something detrimental to life.
