We all know as we are progressing towards our personal
goals, dreams and aspirations that we will fail repeatedly,
and then all of a sudden we achieve our ultimate outcome
and attain our WHY in LIFE!
"Each failure is a stepping stone to Success, which in turn
will become a very long and lovely stone walkway into the
castle of your DREAMS!" - John Di Lemme
You must truly internalize the need to fail in life.
Most people fail more between the ages of 16-25 and then
they don’t fail ever again in life, which means they never
SUCCEED! You see, at the age 25 the majority of people
lose their steam and decide to live a life instead of designing
a lifestyle for themselves and their families. I am very
proud to say that I have failed numerous times in my life.
As entrepreneurs, we all know that we never have jobs
because whatever we do has our life-print on it, which
represents our potential. The following is a list of people
that we all know who failed before they succeeded.
I cannot emphasize enough that you need to continue to try
over and over until you succeed and realize that, as I`ve said
before, "Each failure is a stepping stone to Success, which in
turn will become a very long and lovely stone walkway into
the castle of your DREAMS!"
FAILURES…BUT NOT QUITE
--After Fred Astaire`s first screen test, a 1933 memo from
the MGM testing director said, "Can`t act. Slightly bald.
Can dance a little." Astaire kept that memo over the fireplace
in his Beverly Hills home.
--A relatively unsuccessful marketer of restaurant equipment,
he didn`t sell his first hamburger until age 52. At a time when
many people prepare for retirement, Ray Kroc built
McDonald`s from a handful of hamburger stands into the
world`s largest food chain.
--When his older brother was killed during WWII, he first
withdrew into a shell. Then he began to listen to the radio to
ease his pain. Soon he was dreaming about hosting his own
radio show. That led Dick Clark to start American Bandstand.
--Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper for lacking ideas. He
also went bankrupt several times before he built Disneyland.
The question that I have for you now is, "Do you realize how
you must be proud of your failures because they really are
"...experience is what you receive when you do not achieve
what you desire."
I suggest to print this out and put it on your desk where you
can read this article every day and remind yourself about
Fred Astaire, Ray Kroc, Dick Clark, and Walt Disney and say
to yourself, "What is MY story going to be?" You need to fail
in order to ultimately succeed in LIFE!
"IN SUCCESS LANGUAGE, FAILURE MEANS YOU ARE "ALMOST THERE!"
Make today an AWESOME day !!!
