How do you see failure? When you fail, as well all do, do you identify yourself as the failure? Or do you see yourself as a winner who learned a valuable lesson? Bob shares a few words of wisdom on this important topic. Later in the interview segment, he’ll be joined by the great Hall-of-Fame quarterback and Hall-of-Fame entrepreneur, Fran Tarkenton. He will help us understand how we can utilize the power of failure in order to become much more successful than we ever could without it. That and more in this episode!
Bob’s Thought of the Day
- Persistence in the aftermath of failure is absolutely key to obtaining any kind of significant success in this world.
- If you want inspiration to keep going in the midst of failure, look no further than inventors such as Thomas Edison and the Wright brothers, business leaders such as Walt Disney and Colonel Sanders, and authors Agatha Christie, Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield.
- The harder you fall, the higher you’ll bounce. Be proud of your blackened eye.
- The key is to learn from our failures and build upon our successes.
Interview with Fran Tarkenton
- Failure is not evil. The only way to succeed is to fail. The essence of success is that you have to do something.
- You’re a potential winner if you fail. If you don’t fail, you don’t have a shot.
- Fail intelligently. Don’t let a positive attitude get in the way of doing your homework.
- Reality asserts itself. You can’t move forward unless you see the signs that something isn’t working.
