Willingness to Fail EP: 039

podcast Jun 16, 2021

Successful people often display the same qualities: passion, persistence, self-discipline, creativity, and commitment. But they also have one more thing in common and that is their willingness to fail. 

So many of us get stuck and never move forward with our plans and goals because we’re scared of not being able to do it right the first time. We’re scared to make mistakes because failure hurts. It stings like a bee and it’s the kind of pain we don’t want to feel.

But if we’re honest, we know failing can teach us so many valuable lessons we will never learn otherwise, and even develop in us the determination to win.

Join me today in this episode of The Inside Story Podcast as I discuss:

  • Why we should be willing to fail and allow ourselves to make mistakes
  • My own story of how I messed up a Challenge I was leading for the LIGHTbeamers Community, and what I learned from it
  • Two of my favorite one-liners on success from the book Double Blessing by Mark Batterson
  • How success goes hand in hand with failure, as well as sacrifices
  • Connecting with others better when you become real with your story, sharing the imperfect and messy moments that come with success

Novelist Paulo Coelho said: ““There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”

Be willing to fail, for on the other side of that failure lies your greatest success.
