Failure Breeds Success

Failure Breeds Success

"Each failure to sell will increase your chances for success at your next attempt."

Og Mandino

This is an important lesson for all business owners and shows the importance of attitude. Sales is a numbers game and those brave souls who do well with cold calling know that about 2 in 100 calls will give significant income opportunities. Don't focus on the failures look at the successes.

There is no fast way to online business success that doesn't involve hard work, determination, failures and experimentation - and I have the scars to prove it.!!

But you can succeed if you plan for it. Write down your goals and track them. Be prepared to part with some cash along the way. Network with others.

As Rachel Hunter says in the Pantene ad (in relation to hair beauty),

"It won't happen overnight, but it will happen".

If it is good enough for your hair then it's good enough for your web success.

Good article, but instead of giving a general link to your blog, wouldn't it be better to give a direct link to the related post? Otherwise what you wrote will be drowned out by all the new entries you post over time and people will struggle to find the entry you originally wrote on this topic. Good luck!

Failure has too much of a bad stigma to it; we must learn to persevere - especially when it comes to non-life threatening situations; some have said that 'Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.'; to truly succeed, one must turn failure into a 'learning experience' by not repeating the same mistake(s) endlessly.

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan, 'press on' has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race." Calvin Coolidge You Only fail if you quit always move forward.

Yes I'm still hanging in there for overnight success but I guess it's like the old saying, "The harder I work, the luckier (more successful) I become".

Hi Doc, I like this statement "If it is good enough for your hair". Thankfully, I still have all my hair. :) Ok, it's grayer now. I'd love for success to happen overnight, though. :)
