Understanding failure is more important than understanding success. If you want to succeed in life you must learn what not to do. There are two ways to learn what not to do when pursuing a dream or something you are passionate about:
- The Easy Way – Find a success mentor and learn from their mistakes and failures.
- The Hard Way – Taking action and learning through the school of hard knocks what works and what doesn’t work. This is the hard way because it often costs you time and money to learn what not to do. It is also an emotional roller coaster ride. Negative emotions, when things go wrong and positive emotions, when things go right. The Hard Way requires an enormous amount of persistence and patience.
