Success Always Starts with Failure

Posted March 12, 2012 by Marcy Twete in Leaders We Adore

Tim Harford’s new book boasts an intriguing title. It’s called, “Adapt: Why Success Always Starts with Failure.” What raises my eyebrows is the third word – always? Does success, in fact, always start with failure? Or just sometimes?

I think, the truth of the matter is, successful individuals know exactly how to deal with failure. It comes in one’s reaction to failure and ultimately adapting to the circumstances that surround that failure. I highly recommend reading Harford’s new book and realizing that it’s not winning or losing. It’s how you work your circumstances when you lose.
