Of all the people who have written about success, I’ve never come across one who said “I’ve failed more often than I’ve succeeded”. Until yesterday. I read an article by Bruce Horst, founder – with his wife Jean – of SearchWarp. I and some others asked him to write the story of his success with SearchWarp.com and where he’s got to from where he started. So he’s writing it in parts. Part one is “Secrets of My Success: Failure is Not an Option. (It is Mandatory!)”
I was so inspired by it, still am. It’s honest, gutsy, and down to earth. Full of real-life wisdom. I reminded me of what’s real in life. And it took a load off my shoulders. It woke me up to the reality that success means failing, quite a lot of times, doubting yourself, experiencing the darkest of times.
But never giving up.
