Many people fear that they will fail, and herein lies the main reason that they won’t be successful. Most successful and wealthy people, though, have actually experienced serious setbacks and failures before they became the persons they are today, and they all, to a certain degree, had their failures in the past.What can we learn from this? Well, there’s a sort of learning curve that affects practically every sort of business.
For Rowland Macy, the retail business was actually not different. What probably made him successful was the fact that he decided to open a store at a top location in New York City, rather than in locations where demand was weak. Anyway, the fact is that Mr. Macy went through his first failures with his eyes wide open and that he had learned enough lessons to be able to not make the same mistakes later in his career.
What we see is that it’s not wise to stop trying if you have the feeling that success is so far away. Just remain focused, work hard, and have a little faith in yourself. Generally, there will be no success if you did not fail before, and you better learn to deal with it as it is just one of the facts of life.
