“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.”
Whether in business or life, we often walk a fine line between success and failure.Booker T. Washington’s quote highlights the inevitability of challenges on the path to success. In fact, I firmly believe success and failure go hand in hand. If you’re hoping to succeed, you’ve got to fail or learn from those who have.
This is due to the fact that successful individuals aren’t just born — there’s a lot more that goes into the equation. Through my experience, I’ve found those who are highly successful have a lot more in common than we may think.
On the hunt for success? Here are some habits to take note of:
1. Boldly fail
