In order to grow, you need failure. Understand and accept failure as a part of life. We often experience that learning is more effective in failure than in success because failure teaches us what works and what does not. When we embrace our strengths or limitations – we become better. People are often so afraid they’ll fail at something that they don’t try. Don’t be one of those people. Everyone has failed at something in his or her life, but not everyone tries again and again. World hard every day to reach your goals and you will. Keep going and you will find success. Subscribe!

How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big by Scott Adams   [Self-Growth] {#249} #BriefAudioBook - 30 November 2020 How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big Kind of the Story of My Life Scott Adams 17 min read overview Have you ever taken a look back at your life and wondered why you haven't gone much further along in life? Well, we've all had one or two instances when we thought we should have gotten more out of life than we currently do. There are times when we take a look back at the previous two or three years and wonder where it all went wrong. But in most cases, nothing went wrong. We're just not patient enough to see that every failure we encounter comes with bits of opportunities and lessons essential to set us up for greater success. Scott Adams has likely failed at more things than anyone else you’ve ever met. So how did he go from hapless office worker and serial failure to the creator of Dilbert, one of the world’s most famous syndicated comic strips, in just a few years? In “How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big”, Adams shares the strategy he has used since he was a teen to invite failure in, to embrace it, then pick its pocket.
