    Great videos!

    The one great point for me is we have all
    failed at something at sometime.

    The failures are what drives us towards
    success!

        Thanks for the videos. There is another book by John Maxwell, Failing Forward. It is a good read for those who want to know why failing is important.

        Cheers,

                    I have something even better.

                    The article starts here:

                    Winston Churchill was famous for saying "Never, Never, Never Give Up!" I guess he would know since he helped save a whole nation...this, from someone who failed sixth grade. He was also defeated in every election for public office until he became Prime Minister at the age of 62. In any event, here are some other more notable examples in history to help us put one foot in front of the other and keep on keeping on.

                    As a young man, Abraham Lincoln went to war a captain and returned a private. Afterwards, he was a failure as a businessman. As a lawyer in Springfield, he was too impractical and temperamental to be a success. He turned to politics and was defeated in his first try for the legislature, again defeated in his first attempt to be nominated for congress, defeated in his application to be commissioner of the General Land Office, defeated in the senatorial election of 1854, defeated in his efforts for the vice-presidency in 1856, and defeated in the senatorial election of 1858. At about that time, he wrote in a letter to a friend, "I am now the most miserable man living. If what I feel were equally distributed to the whole human family, there would not be one cheerful face on the earth."

                    Socrates was called an "immoral corrupter of youth" and continued to corrupt even after a sentence of death was imposed on him. He drank the hemlock and died corrupting.

                    Sigmund Freud was booed from the podium when he first presented his ideas to the scientific community of Europe. He returned to his office and kept on writing.

                    Robert Sternberg received a C in his first college introductory-psychology class. His teacher commented that "there was a famous Sternberg in psychology and it was obvious there would not be another." Three years later Sternberg graduated with honors from Stanford University with exceptional distinction in psychology, summa cum laude, and Phi Beta Kappa. In 2002, he became President of the American Psychological Association.

                    Charles Darwin gave up a medical career and was told by his father, "You care for nothing but shooting, dogs and rat catching." In his autobiography, Darwin wrote, "I was considered by all my masters and my father, a very ordinary boy, rather below the common standard of intellect." Clearly, he evolved.

                    Thomas Edison's teachers said he was "too stupid to learn anything." He was fired from his first two jobs for being "non-productive." As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, "How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?" Edison replied, "I didn't fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps."

                    Albert Einstein did not speak until he was 4-years-old and did not read until he was 7. His parents thought he was "sub-normal," and one of his teachers described him as "mentally slow, unsociable, and adrift forever in foolish dreams." He was expelled from school and was refused admittance to the Zurich Polytechnic School. He did eventually learn to speak and read. Even to do a little math.

                    Louis Pasteur was only a mediocre pupil in undergraduate studies and ranked 15th out of 22 students in chemistry.

                    Henry Ford failed and went broke five times before he succeeded.

                    R. H. Macy failed seven times before his store in New York City caught on.

                    F. W. Woolworth was not allowed to wait on customers when he worked in a dry goods store because, his boss said, "he didn't have enough sense."

                    When Bell telephone was struggling to get started, its owners offered all their rights to Western Union for $100,000. The offer was disdainfully rejected with the pronouncement, "What use could this company make of an electrical toy."

                    John Garcia, who eventually was honored for his fundamental psychological discoveries, was once told by a reviewer of his often-rejected manuscripts that one is no more likely to find the phenomenon he discovered than to find bird droppings in a cuckoo clock. (sort of a cute critique actually)

                    Rocket scientist Robert Goddard found his ideas bitterly rejected by his scientific peers on the grounds that rocket propulsion would not work in the rarefied atmosphere of outer space.

                    Daniel Boone was once asked by a reporter if he had ever been lost in the wilderness. Boone thought for a moment and replied, "No, but I was once bewildered for about three days."

                    An expert said of Vince Lombardi: "He possesses minimal football knowledge and lacks motivation." Lombardi would later write, "It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get back up."

                    Michael Jordan and Bob Cousy were each cut from their high school basketball teams. Jordan once observed, "I've failed over and over again in my life. That is why I succeed."

                    Babe Ruth is famous for his past home run record, but for decades he also held the record for strikeouts. He hit 714 home runs and struck out 1,330 times in his career (about which he said, "Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.”. And didn't Mark McGwire break that strikeout record? (John Wooden once explained that winners make the most errors.)

                    Hank Aaron went 0 for 5 his first time at bat with the Milwaukee Braves.

                    Stan Smith was rejected as a ball boy for a Davis Cup tennis match because he was "too awkward and clumsy." He went on to clumsily win Wimbledon and the U. S. Open. And eight Davis Cups.

                    Tom Landry, Chuck Noll, Bill Walsh, and Jimmy Johnson accounted for 11 of the 19 Super Bowl victories from 1974 to 1993. They also share the distinction of having the worst records of first-season head coaches in NFL history - they didn't win a single game.

                    Johnny Unitas's first pass in the NFL was intercepted and returned for a touchdown. Joe Montana's first pass was also intercepted. And while we're on quarterbacks, during his first season Troy Aikman threw twice as many interceptions (18) as touchdowns (9) . . . oh, and he didn't win a single game. You think there's a lesson here?

                    After Carl Lewis won the gold medal for the long jump in the 1996 Olympic games, he was asked to what he attributed his longevity, having competed for almost 20 years. He said, "Remembering that you have both wins and losses along the way. I don't take either one too seriously."

                    Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor because "he lacked imagination and had no good ideas." He went bankrupt several times before he built Disneyland. In fact, the proposed park was rejected by the city of Anaheim on the grounds that it would only attract riffraff.

                    Charles Schultz had every cartoon he submitted rejected by his high school yearbook staff. Oh, and Walt Disney wouldn't hire him.

                    After Fred Astaire's first screen test, the memo from the testing director of MGM, dated 1933, read, "Can't act. Can't sing. Slightly bald. Can dance a little." He kept that memo over the fire place in his Beverly Hills home. Astaire once observed that "when you're experimenting, you have to try so many things before you choose what you want, that you may go days getting nothing but exhaustion." And here is the reward for perseverance: "The higher up you go, the more mistakes you are allowed. Right at the top, if you make enough of them, it's considered to be your style."

                    After his first audition, Sidney Poitier was told by the casting director, "Why don't you stop wasting people's time and go out and become a dishwasher or something?" It was at that moment, recalls Poitier, that he decided to devote his life to acting.

                    When Lucille Ball began studying to be actress in 1927, she was told by the head instructor of the John Murray Anderson Drama School, "Try any other profession."

                    The first time Jerry Seinfeld walked on-stage at a comedy club as a professional comic, he looked out at the audience, froze, and forgot the English language. He stumbled through "a minute-and a half" of material and was jeered offstage. He returned the following night and closed his set to wild applause.

                    In 1944, Emmeline Snively, director of the Blue Book Modeling Agency, told modeling hopeful Norma Jean Baker, "You'd better learn secretarial work or else get married." I'm sure you know that Norma Jean was Marilyn Monroe. Now . . . who was Emmeline Snively?

                    At the age of 21, French acting legend Jeanne Moreau was told by a casting director that her head was too crooked, she wasn't beautiful enough, and she wasn't photogenic enough to make it in films. She took a deep breath and said to herself, "Alright, then, I guess I will have to make it my own way." After making nearly 100 films her own way, in 1997 she received the European Film Academy Lifetime Achievement Award.

                    After Harrison Ford's first performance as a hotel bellhop in the film Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round, the studio vice-president called him in to his office. "Sit down kid," the studio head said, "I want to tell you a story. The first time Tony Curtis was ever in a movie he delivered a bag of groceries. We took one look at him and knew he was a movie star." Ford replied, "I thought you were spossed to think that he was a grocery delivery boy." The vice president dismissed Ford with "You ain't got it kid , you ain't got it … now get out of here."

                    Michael Caine's headmaster told him, "You will be a laborer all your life."

                    Charlie Chaplin was initially rejected by Hollywood studio chiefs because his pantomime was considered "nonsense."

                    Enrico Caruso's music teacher said he had no voice at all and could not sing. His parents wanted him to become an engineer.

                    Decca Records turned down a recording contract with the Beatles with the unprophetic evaluation, "We don't like their sound. Groups of guitars are on their way out." After Decca rejected the Beatles, Columbia records followed suit.

                    In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, fired Elvis Presley after one performance. He told Presley, "You ain't goin' nowhere, son. You ought to go back to drivin' a truck."

                    Beethoven handled the violin awkwardly and preferred playing his own compositions instead of improving his technique. His teacher called him "hopeless as a composer." And, of course, you know that he wrote five of his greatest symphonies while completely deaf.

                    The Impressionists had to arrange their own art exhibitions because their works were routinely rejected by the Paris Salon. How many of you have heard of the Paris Salon?

                    A Paris art dealer refused Picasso shelter when he asked if he could bring in his paintings from out of the rain. One hopes that there is justice in this world and that the art dealer eventually went broke.

                    Van Gogh sold only one painting during his life. And this to the sister of one of his friends for 400 francs (approximately $50). This didn't stop him from completing over 800 paintings.

                    John Constable's luminous painting Watermeadows at Salisbury was dismissed in 1830 by a judge at the Royal Academy as "a nasty green thing." Name of the judge, anyone? Anyone?

                    Rodin's father once said, "I have an idiot for a son." Described as the worst pupil in the school, he was rejected three times admittance to the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. His uncle called him uneducable. Perhaps this gave him food for thought.

                    Stravinsky was run out of town by an enraged audience and critics after the first performance of the Rite of Spring.

                    When Pablo Casals reached 95, a young reporter asked him "Mr. Casals, you are 95 and the greatest cellist that ever lived. Why do you still practice six hours a day?" Mr. Casals answered, "Because I think I'm making progress."

                    Leo Tolstoy flunked out of college. He was described as both "unable and unwilling to learn." No doubt a slow developer.

                    Louisa May Alcott, author of Little Women, was encouraged to find work as a servant by her family.

                    Emily Dickinson had only seven poems published in her lifetime.

                    15 publishers rejected a manuscript by e. e. cummings. When he finally got it published by his mother, the dedication, printed in uppercase letters, read WITH NO THANKS TO . . . followed by the list of publishers who had rejected his prized offering. Nice going Eddie. Thanks for illustrating that nobody loses all the time.

                    18 publishers turned down Richard Bach's story about a "soaring eagle." Macmillan finally published Jonathan Livingston Seagull in 1970. By 1975 it had sold more than 7 million copies in the U.S. alone.

                    21 publishers rejected Richard Hooker's humorous war novel, M*A*S*H. He had worked on it for seven years.

                    22 publishers rejected James Joyce's The Dubliners.

                    27 publishers rejected Dr. Seuss's first book, To Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street.

                    Jack London received six hundred rejection slips before he sold his first story.

                    English crime novelist John Creasey got 753 rejection slips before he published 564 books.

                    William Saroyan accumulated more than a thousand rejections before he had his first literary piece published. Way to not take a hint, Bill!

                    Gertrude Stein submitted poems to editors for nearly 20 years before one was finally accepted. See . . . a rose is a rose.

                    I bet you didn't know that John Milton wrote Paradise Lost 16 years after losing his eyesight

                    One of Professor Pajares's first research efforts came back with a review that began, "There are so many things I don't like about this article I just don't know where to begin."

                    There is a professor at MIT who offers a course on failure. He does that, he says, because failure is a far more common experience than success. An interviewer once asked him if anybody ever failed the course on failure. He thought a moment and replied, "No, but there were two incomplete's.

    Just further proof that no one is born successful.

    We can't expect to just BE lucky and fortunate in life.

    The older I get, the more I realize that "luck" and "good fortune" only consistently comes to those who work for it.

    Jose, thanks for this thread and the motivation material included. Without valleys you cannot know peaks and as you have shown there is a common thread amongst some of the world's most notable contributors - failure first!

    Getting knocked down is easy - getting up and trying again is championship stuff!

    Much success to all.

    "If you've never failed, you've never lived" as he says in the video you posted.

    I couldn't agree more. It's through failure that we learn to be successful.

    What do they say? You'll end up regretting the things you never tried much more than the things you tried and failed at.

        I think it is very true. If you think about it, there is no failure..only a lesson that that particular way wasn't the answer. If we always found the "right" answer on the first try we would never experience the learning necessary for us to grow. And, sometimes the answer isn't in the solution itself but within the process it took us to find it.

    Failure is accompanied with mistakes. We learn from our mistakes (or we're supposed to). As long as each failure is in a new way, you've learned something new. After awhile you're bound to get things right.

    The key here is after you fail, you must change your strategies and go
    all out again. If you are not changing your strategies, you will get back
    the same old results.

    Treat failure as feedback, change your strategies, and you will get
    different and better results.

    Hey Jose,

    Thanks for sharing these amazing and inspiring videos with us.

    The one thing that I learned over the years in internet marketing is that if something does not work for you, try something else. Just never quit no matter what.

    When I first started back in 2002, I failed misrebly to the top for the first 4 years. Now it's 2008 and I am a full time internet marketer.

    All this time that you are not succeeding, you are really failing your way to the top.

      Great videos. I agree you need to get out there and try to do things. When you fail it is a learning experience. Keep on trying tell you figure it out or try new things that work better for you. If you try and fail and are lost on what to do seek advice. Find you're self a mentor to help you find your way to success. Another option is to find someone else that has already succeeded to help you figure it out. This forum is a great place to ask for advice to help guide you. The bonus is when you do succeed you will be stronger because you will know that all the failures lead up to you succeeding. This way when the next challenge confronts you it will not be as hard to fight through the failures because you will be expecting to succeed.

    Jose,

    Awesome videos and especially awesome article! As long as we learn from our failures, we will become better at what we do. Another thing I read is that people are afraid to make mistakes because society frowns upon them. But that just hurts people in the long run. I used to be this way, but I changed my way of thinking. I always think about the lessons learned in every mistake/failure that I make now.

    They are not failures in those videos. They are stepping stones. As one door closes the other opens. Who hasn't had negative things said and done to them. Its all a part of getting to where you end and what you do in the future.

    Put a positive spin on it and not a negative one. Look for the inspiration and not the lack of abilities. Look for the innovation and not the can't do approach.

    Thanks mate for the thoughtful post.
    We don't tend to learn as much from our successes as we do from our failures.. so every failure means we grow closer to hitting "success", whatever we perceive that to be for ourselves. I hope this encourages some to keep working on their business visions.

    • Very good thread. We have to fail or we won't learn our lessons or how to make things better. Failing also teaches us humility and the feeling of accomplishment after hard work. If everything came easily, there would be no reason to really try.

        The important thing to note is this. Failing is all about falling on your back, because if you fall on your back, all you have to do is look up. If you can look up then you can get up.

        And secondly, make sure you fail fast, because the faster you fail, the sooner you will learn how to pull yourself up. When people look for success they look in the wrong places. Don't look inside of yourself for ideas for success, look for success in the market. Become the best listener that you can be. Talk to everyone you see, and listen very carefully.

    Look at Edison, he failed thousands of times before inventing the light bulb. The only way you can lose is to quit. Keep Charging!

      Great video Jose. Nice to see you on here as well.



      You know how most people accept poverty and misery.

      They are like the water that fills up the seas and oceans.

      There are others that are trying, struggling, to get up on the mountain.

      Sometimes, they flow back down. But they also try to get back on.

    A failure is a success in a way, it is all about how you approach failure. Instead of looking at a failure like a "game ender", I have always looked at a failure like a learning experience.

        This reminds me of a saying.

        Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

        Failure is how you know what you tried does not work. It gives you the opportunity
        to try again and make changes until you succeed. The best thing about failure is,
        once you do succeed, you feel elated. If you never failed, you would never
        appreciate your successes to the fullest extent.

        Thanks for the great thread

    Hi Jose:

    Thanks for sharing. If I may add something. A person walks and falls seven times. The eighth attempt they never stumble.

    People read this and think they failed seven times but now they reached the goal! That is how we have been trained with negativity. The person when falling didn't fail at all. They made an attempt. If you try and don't reach a goal it is not failing. Failing is a word for those that never get off the couch and make an effort at all excluding criticizing the world for their insecurities.

    Thank you and enjoy Sunday.

    I believe these are not failures. They are learning experiences. The only way it turns into a failure is if you quit. Message here is don't quit no matter how bad things get. If Michael Jordan quit because he got cut from his high school basketball team then he would be a failure. He didn't and is one of the best basketball players of all time.

    Don't quit!

    Have a great day!
