Here’s a dose of #entspresso from one of my online mentors, Evan Carmichael!
Evan’s put together a video inspired by Will Smith’s message,
“Fail early, fail often and fail forward…”
Will Smith is an American actor, producer, rapper, and songwriter. According to Forbes he ranks as one of the top ten highest paid actors worldwide. As of 2016, his films have grossed $7.5 billion at the global box office.
Check out Evan’s #entspresso video on the benefits of “failure” here:
On the theme of “failure” Will Smith says,
Fail early, fail often, fail forward. You know it’s always a little bit frustrating to me when people have a negative relationship with failure. Failure is a massive part of being able to be successful. You have to get comfortable with failure. You have to actually seek failure. Failure is where all of the lessons are…
Successful people fail a LOT. They fail a whole lot more than they succeed, but they extract the lessons from the failure and they use that, the energy and the wisdom to come around to the next stage of success. You’ve gotta take a shot. You have to live at the edge of your capabilities. You gotta live where you’re almost certain you’re gonna fail. That’s the reason for practice. Practice is controlled failure. You’re getting to your limit, getting to your limit, getting to your limit… and then [you] make an adjustment and you can do it.
Evan then comments:
I think most people have an unhealthy relationship with failure. I think people see failure as this really bad thing and I think most people are really afraid of failing in front of other people. That’s the ultimate judgement. You don’t want to be seen as somebody who IS a failure. But failure is only really failure if it’s final. Failure only really failure if you don’t learn anything from it.
All failure is, is a way to know that this thing that you tried didn’t work. That’s great learning. If you’re never failing you’re playing life so safe that you’ve never taken a risk.
The video also features some bonus insights into the value of “failure” by Tim Grover, Peter McKinnon, and Jay Shetty.
