If you want to accomplish anything great in life, it’s most likely not going to be an easy path to get there. On this James Altucher podcast you will learn how to fail first then be successful!
Sometimes, things fall into place for us. Maybe you’ve just scored a great job because of a connection you had! Or maybe your stocks are doing well and your bank account is growing. Maybe family relationships are going well too, and everyone seems happy!
But more often than not, things fall out of place, and we find ourselves sitting in failure. Sometimes it’s our fault, sometimes it’s not, but whatever the case, failures are hard to handle and difficult to recover from.
I understand failure. I used to live on my sister’s coach. My injury immobilized me, and for months, I wallowed in self-pity. My sister ended up kicking me out, seeing that nothing in my situation was going to change if I didn’t make change happen. Finally, I realized that my failures and hardships didn’t hinder me from greatness, and I learned to fight for myself again.
This James Altucher podcast today talks about failure and how recovery can set you up for success.
“I just started a whole bunch of businesses and some of them worked, some of them didn’t, but I was always very honest about my lessons that I learned … And I was also honest about myself so people would trust me … And that would get me opportunities, and so gradually I built together this portfolio of private companies that I really believed in … So all day long, as you know, I’m a podcaster, I’m a writer, I’m working on TV shows. I’m working on all the things I dreamed working on 20 years ago, and now I actually get to do it.” – James Altucher
