Real-world examples.The most successful companies and people propelled themselves off of failures.
- Apple did it with its Lisa computer.
- Colonel Sanders did it with 1000 rejections to his secret sauce.
- USC's Pete Carroll did it with his past coaching failures.
It's an awesome trait.Resiliency is one of the traits we admire most in people. Because entrepreneurs will fail much more than they'll succeed, developing resiliency is a must. So how do you do it? According to psychologist Hara Estroff Marano, always think your cup is "half full":
Reframing is at the heart of resilience, a way of shifting focus from the cup half empty to the cup half full. You can reexamine your life story to see how heroic your acts had been as a child. You go back to an incident, find the strengths, and build self-esteem on the achievement.Use our cheesy template:
"The more failures I have, the more successes I'll find."
