If you’re in business or starting a business it’s necessary to know…
Failure is an essential ingredient in success.
Failure is there to help you see the gaps in your skill, knowledge or experience.
Business is like a video game
You know when you’re playing a video game, and you get to that bit you’re stuck on, and then you keep playing that part over and over again to learn every nuance so you can get to the next level?
Well, imagine getting to that part of the video game and giving up the first time and saying to yourself, “That game is sh*t.”
And you walk away and you never complete the round and you never have the fun or satisfaction of completing the game.
Well, that’s what business is like.
Business is like a video game.
You’ve got to keep approaching the same things and every single time you fail, you identify new knowledge, new skills, and you gain new experience with every single approach you take until you can progress.
Then next time you can apply what you’ve gained, and you get to have a better go.
Business is just like a video game.
You have to play on repeat until you gain the level of knowledge, skill and experience you need to get to the next level.
Fail. Learn. Level UP!
