In our formative years, few of us were trained to deal with failure. In fact, many of us were taught to do whatever it takes to avoid failing. Learning to play an instrument, playing sports, looking “cool” in the eyes of our peers, choosing a spouse, no one wishes to fail. And, if we do fail, we have been conditioned to feel discouraged or even disgraced, not energized. Can you relate? What we did not hear about the most notable successes in history is what the people who achieved them did to obtain the win. Through perseverance and risk-taking, did you know that on his way to invention of the light bulb, Thomas Edison discovered more than 1,000 ways that a light bulb would not work? If he had stopped “failing”, we might still be using lanterns and candles! In this presentation, we will discuss the top 10 reasons that people fail and hear several inspiring examples of how some of history’s most successful people achieved their breakthroughs.
• Understand the true character of failure…this “thing” that is present all around us daily.
• Highlight key reasons people fail and provide awareness of how to avoid them.
• Demonstrate through examples how failure can be your “friend” and why we should welcome it.
