How many times are you willing to face failure or rejection before calling it quits? 10 times or 100 times or 10,000 times. I understand how tough it can be. I have been there myself and who likes to fail or be rejected?
Unless you can flip your point of view and look at each failure as an opportunity to learn something new, the apprehension fear and doubt you feel around failure will continue to be a part of your reality.
Failure and rejection is a part of the process and you will be hard pressed to find one successful person who has not faced failure. Most will tell you they have had their greatest success on the back of their biggest failure.
If you are struggling, facing obstacles and challenges as you press forward towards you goals or dream… then this story is for you to show you the power of persistence.
If you are feeling discouraged, experiencing disappointment and ready to call it quits. Hold your horses before you throw in the towel… take a moment to listen to the story about one man’s quest for success and facing rejection 32,232. Nope, I didn’t mistype… he actually failed 32,232 times on his way to success.
The number 1 reason why people fail to achieve their goals or to live their dreams is because they give up too soon? How soon is too soon? Is there an appropriate time to throw in the towel?
The simple answer is based on if you want to make your dream a reality or not. The courage to persist which Tom Corley has in spades is a powerful trait and its the key driving force behind success. Abandon your doubts and fears as you continue to persist towards your dreams.
Love Peace and Bliss
