The reality is that there is no such thing as failure. Whenever we attempt to do something and fail, we end up doing something else. You cannot fail, you can only produce results. The first part of our series “Born To Win” will prove that all those times you thought you were losing, you were actually winning.


When you think of failure, what is the first thing that comes to mind? A typical reaction is some statement of defeat or a negative hypercritical statement of self-affliction. That is how society wants you to view failure – with feelings of futile misery.

We are taught that failure is not an option when in fact defeat is not an option. A person that is Born to Win can flip an occurrence of failure and use it as a lesson learned and a point of motivation to do better. Remember, the most successful people in life have failed countless times, but what made the difference is that they kept on trying. Perseverance, persistence, and resilience are key qualities of an outstanding leader.

The truth is there is no such thing as failure; there is only an opportunity to dig deeper than you have before to go further than you have before. True victory presents itself when one honestly and fully applies themselves to a goal they’ve set out to achieve. The next time you feel like you’ve failed at something, use that feeling as a motivator to approach it even stronger and better than you did the first time around.

Most of the people we look up to have failed. We just see the end result. See for yourself here.
