So here it goes 🙂
Successful people are great storytellers.
But Success Stories Often Begin With Failure
Do you agree?
They have perfected the art of persuasion.
They can frame strong arguments and voice them clearly and concisely.
These storytellers are often pros at sharing their success stories.
If you ask one of these people to tell you about themselves they will dive into a script
of their many successes throughout their life while cruising through their resume.
Many of us are these people.
How many times have you rattled off your well-rehearsed story of your life to someone else with pride?
You’ve perfected this story and framed it to be grand and impressive.
Every now and then a storyteller may share a hardship they faced in their story but then explain how they overcame it and reached eventual success.
But never does one go through the many things that went wrong.
But what I think is that the best success stories are often begin with failures.
For instance, the famous people that you know of downs not always start from success but instead they build them from failure .
- Bill Gates watched his first company crumble.
Bill Gates is now one of the world’s wealthiest individuals, but he didn’t earn his fortune in a straight line to success. Gates entered the entrepreneurial scene with a company called Traf-O-Data, which aimed to process and analyze the data from traffic tapes (think of it like an early version of big data).
He tried to sell the idea alongside his business partner, Paul Allen, but the product barely even worked. It was a complete disaster. However, the failure did not hold Gates back from exploring new opportunities, and a few years later, he created his first Microsoft product, and forged a new path to success.
- Henry Ford: While Ford is today known for his innovative assembly line and American-made cars, he wasn’t an instant success. In fact, his early businesses failed and left him broke five time before he founded the successful Ford Motor Company.
- Walt Disney: Today Disney rakes in billions from merchandise, movies and theme parks around the world, but Walt Disney himself had a bit of a rough start. He was fired by a newspaper editor because, “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” After that, Disney started a number of businesses that didn’t last too long and ended with bankruptcy and failure. He kept plugging along, however, and eventually found a recipe for success that worked.
Scientists and Thinkers
These people are often regarded as some of the greatest minds of our century, but they often had to face great obstacles, the ridicule of their peers and the animosity of society.
“There is nothing like knowing you have a real opportunity to affect the future in a positive way.”
That’s right, you do not quit is the key to success.
Only YOU and you yourself is able to find the right path to success.
