Failure: The Secret to Success

Honda has put out an absolutely fabulous video, explaining the upside of failure. Fear of failure is what often holds many of us back from starting our business. What if I fail, what can happen? Failure in itself can be good sometimes. We learn from everything we do. We become smarter, better and faster. Most people look at a company like Honda, a company that is known for high quality products that sell well and think they have never failed. They have, multiple times, and spectacularly. It is ok to fail, just make sure you learn from the failure.

I am inspired.

Timeless point you've made here - I like to tell the audiences I speak to that they should "forever fail forward". It's more important to keep moving than it is to worry about what obstacles, or even failures, might present themselves.

Failure is a great lesson, and with the speed of business cycles today, a failure at noon yesterday could, if you keep moving, become a success by tomorrow afternoon.

Forever fail forward.
