Sometimes You Don't Make the Cut

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal.  It is the courage to continue that counts."
~Winston Churchill

We have all been there: you bust your behind trying to reach a goal, you have high hopes, but then you get dismal-at-best results.

It's hard to not take it personally.

I've been there recently and I found myself really questioning why I've been spending all this time doing something that is meeting seemingly lackluster fruit.  But then I reminded myself, "Sometimes you don't make the cut."  That's life.

Every person who has ever amounted to anything, whether it's in the walls of their own homes or in grand corporations, have faced failures big and small.  They have faced those moments where they wonder why the heck they're doing what they're doing and evaluate if it's worth the time, sweat, and tears.

For me, I've decided to tailor back in some areas (the limited writing on my blog will now be non-existent for a time) and to redefine what "success" looks like for me.

In today's podcast, I talk about admirable figures in our times who have didn't make the cut, what they did to overcome it, and what we can individually do when we face similar times.
