Top Tips

Fail forward

If you have to fail, fail forward. Failing forward means learning from our setbacks and making the necessary adjustments to move on and succeed. The faster and harder you fail, the less afraid you are of it because you have come out on the other side of it and are usually stronger and better equipped for it.

Failing is just part of the journey and a step toward figuring things out. It’s not the end of the world if you fail at something. It just means that you're willing enough to do something new. Use failure as an opportunity to be better.

Take action

Your life would be better if you took the action you’ve been avoiding - showing your interest in that girl. Actually making a habit of getting exercise. Taking the first step towards starting your business. The only thing that's stopping you is also you.

Without action, nothing happens. So when you take action, not only do additional resources come your way, but you get feedback that helps you adjust your course and refine your approach. Stop waiting until conditions are perfect, stop over-thinking things, focus on the present and use action to overcome fear.

Taking action is the one thing that molds you into a winner.
