Here’s a guest post from Ryan at Planting Dollars. I was intrigued by one of his comments of “failing forward” (not falling forward) and asked him if he’d be interested in writing a guest post about the topic. Please enjoy and visit his site afterwards. He has my envy of living in Hawaii and pursuing his dream of being a shark photographer! Best, Sam
Have you ever noticed that some of the most successful people in the world seem to just naturally fit in their role? It’s as if they’ve been perfectly sculpted to be the best actor, businessman, or even blogger.
I have a secret to tell you… It’s because of their previous experiences… The one’s you didn’t see before they became wildly and unbelievably successful. These people are actually the biggest failures in the world! But shhhhh, I didn’t tell you that…
Don’t believe me? I want you to try something… The next time you talk to a successful person simply ask them this question:
“What failures have you experienced on your journey towards being where you are today?”
They’ll probably talk your ear off for hours and you’ll begin to realize this: They’ve just swung the bat of life a few more times and eventually hit one out of the park.
