Failing Has Value

In fact, failing actually rewards you.

The motivational speaker, Les Brown says, “you will fail your way to success. “ I’ve often thought that has to be the most idiotic thing ever released out into the world. Until I realized… he was right.

Every successful hustle, every mastery of every skill I have isn’t because I started out knowing everything and how to do it. I had to fail at doing it first. I had to learn some lessons. I had to go through the experience of doing it the wrong way in order to know how to do it the right way.

Failing has value. Not succeeding the first time, the first few times, the first dozen times around… will show you what you don’t know, what you weren’t prepared for and where your weaknesses are. Failing is nothing but a revelation test. It will reveal where you are with what you know so you can better understand what you need to do to get to where you want to be.

Don’t be afraid to fail. It’s the only way you’re going to get ahead. Really.
