Thinking about what it takes for one to be a great success in his chosen field.

Thinking about what it takes for one to be a great success in his chosen field.

Yup, I know, there are a bunch of mojo jojos out there telling you what to do without really having done it before.

If you're like me, you only trust people who have actually been there and done that. Not just some success writer who can weave words to sound legit.

Joe Sugarman is a true success in the world of copywriting, scientific advertising and direct response marketing. And this is his advice for our success:

“Not many people are willing to give failure a second opportunity. They fail once and it is all over. The bitter pill of failure is often more than most people can handle. If you are willing to accept failure and learn from it, if you are willing to consider failure as a blessing in disguise and bounce back, you have got the essential of harnessing one of the most powerful success forces.”
- Joe Sugarman

 “Not many people.."

99% of people

"are willing to give failure a second opportunity."

Willing to persist. To try again. To give it another go. To go through the hard start and see it through.

"They fail once and it is all over."

Realize that you have infinite number of try's. That you can try again. More prepared. More experienced. Bigger. Badder. Stronger.

And reignite the fire that got you started in this path. Think of how small these failures are compared to the great success you will be after persisting through these hard first try's.

And you'll be surprised just how easy it was compared to what you thought.

"The bitter pill of failure is often more than most people can handle."

We are not like most people. We are achievers. We are finishers. We may finish last or bloom late. But we will get there through persistence, discipline, practice.

Spartans don't wimp out.

"If you are willing to accept failure and learn from it, if you are willing to consider failure as a blessing in disguise and bounce back, you have got the essential of harnessing one of the most powerful success forces.”

The essence to the most powerful forces.

Ok let's brainstorm some ideas to bouncing back from failure:

Read about how others have done it before and that it is indeed plausible.

Watch your favorite motivation movie.

Listen to your favorite motivation music. "Lose Yourself" by Eminem, anyone?

Listen to your favorite motivational speech. Ziglar?

Rewrite your goals.

Think about the rewards you will get once you achieved this.



How about you? What are your practices for getting back up from failures?
