9 Lessons from a Lifetime of Failure and Success

by seodeveloping 24 replies
I've failed more than I have succeeded. I think a lot of us share that same story... Spending too much time in all the wrong places, and in the end coming up with nothing to show for it. It isn't until you have that epiphany, that life changing vision or that do or die situation that will force you to push harder than ever before.

I'm here to tell you that in Internet Marketing, as in any other part of life, there is a lesson to be learned each and every day. It doesn't take a degree or a lifetime of experience to have a good idea and put it into action. It takes the will, drive, and constitution to see that idea from conception to production.

So, be strong. Take what you learn each day and apply it to your life. Don't make those same mistakes again, blaze your own trail, and be the kind of boss you've always wanted your own boss to be. Your success, your life, depends on it. Success is just around the corner folks!

9 Lessons

Here are the rules to which I adhere every day. This is my life, it should be part of yours too.

1 - Take chances, they can lead you to a place you may never have expected to be. You may just like where you end up.

2 - Consume, enjoy, and never take for granted every moment you get to spend with those you care about. Particularly your children, they will always matter more than anything else.

3 - Push, try harder and never give up. That thing you've been working so hard to achieve could be just a few extra hours of work away.

4 - When you're feeling down, don't think of how others may have it worse off, instead think of those who love and care about you unconditionally. In the end, happiness will always remain.

5 - Set goals, reach them, and then set some more. Hard work rewards those who don't walk at the bell, it rewards those who understand that their job or pursuit is a gift and not a given.

6 - Do something that will change someone else's life. It could cost money you may never see again, but in the end, why should a little money (or time, effort, distance, etc) ever stand in the way of someone living their dream or changing someone's life.

7 - Live your dreams! Picture what it is that makes you truly happy, with work, personal life, health, passions, etc and make the moves to live your dreams.

8 - Be the best you that you can be. Someone may very well look up to you and you don't even know it. So wear that tie, speak your mind, shake those hands, and smile always. You never know who may see it and learn something from your actions.

9 - Finally Enjoy your life. Don't let anyone tell you differently. Go travel, try new foods and experience new things, because you'll regret it if you don't. Life is way too short not to find a way, so go ahead and find your own way, make your own trail and lead the pack.

I wrote these just as the ball was dropping, leading us from 2015 into 2016. It can apply to pretty much everyone, everywhere, and for any pursuit in life.

    I loved your 'Live by your dreams' part. People always tend to go for making money. They forget usually about their passion and fail in the line of work.

    I would like to add, thank the above for what you already have (be grateful), dance everyday (good exercise and releases dopamines), watch or read something motivating everyday, (get the spirit moving), do a good turn everyday (why not I prefer to give rather than receive). Lastly, found it wise not to share your dreams with friends and family,
