STRIVE TO FAIL.
It is true you can’t control success but you can control the amount of failure. Jim says, if you pursue success, it will elude you like butterflies. You can’t chase failure. The most successful people are the ones who have failed the most.
Be like a failure seeking machine then. However, I don’t mean you go and like failure but try many possibilities. Sales people understand this well. They don’t give up even when turned down by 50 people. Why? Because they know after much failure, comes much returns. If they can reach more people, they can sell more policies.
Be willing to seek much failure, pain and hard work. The returns will always be joy, success and happy life. Don’t fear to work. Don’t fear failure.
