Is Failure Holding You Back?
Creative Rising Episode 203
Do you have a hard time with failure? Does the thought of failing hold you back from the things you most want to do?
Jeff and I would say ‘yes’ to both of those questions. And we’re tired of it. In this episode, we talk about the big area in our business that we feel is an utter failure right now – and we wrestle with giving it up or not. We want to reclaim our relationship with failing and stop it from holding us back, so we call our good friend and mentor, Dane Sanders, to help us reframe how we relate to the idea of failure.
In this episode, we discover what failure really means, how a strong person handles failure well, and how failure might have less to do with failing and more to do with our capacity for risk…. and our addiction to success.
