Hope everyone had wonderful holiday season and had the opportunity to enjoy it with family and friends! The New Year is upon us and its that time of the year people tend to hit the reset button and tackle life with a renewed vigor – a renewed focus. I came across this post from Richard Branson a few days ago and what topic could be better to kick off the new year. If you haven’t been able to already, it’s time to redefine how you feel about failure; and more importantly, how you react to it. Enjoy…
Turning failure into success
I’ve been failing for as long as I can remember. In fact, I’ve been failing even longer than that – I fell over many times as a baby before learning how to walk. The pattern has continued into adulthood and my life as an entrepreneur, and I have learned and loved every step of the way.
We’re celebrating failure all month on virgin.com. In advance, Virgin Unite and Google for Entrepreneurs teamed up for a Hangout on How to Turn Failure into Success, featuring me and Tyra Banks. As well as being a model, presenter and the best impersonator of yours truly I’ve ever seen (!), Tyra has amassed a hugely successful business empire. She explains in the video above how setbacks were a vital part of her personal and business development – something we both have in common.
