Is Failure the Key to Success?

Is failure inevitable to succeed? John Thornhill’s eBook written from his experience of working with hundreds of “would-be” marketers. These are his students who pay to learn to succeed. But the starting point never seems to be needing more information. It is more a matter of overcoming mindset hurdles!

With his book “Is Failure the Key to Success?”, he makes the reader come to grips with the reality of failure. A spectator will applaud the success of a top athlete but will never imagine the road of failure he had to take to get there.

(So many things can happen on the way: injuries and sponsors backing out, lost championships or choosing the wrong coach. Or being surrounded by people who don’t really believe in you but are there for the ride). Yes, ninety percent of your effort results in “Failure”.

But the funny thing is that all your failures can be forgotten and your slate cleaned by just one great success!

Babe Ruth held the record for home runs (but also the record for strikeouts)!

Abraham Lincoln lost all his elections except for the Presidency (and now he is the most famous president of the United States).

Edison failed thousands of times before he succeeded in finding the right filament for his light bulb that would give light without giving too much heat or burning up.

Failure multiple times helps discover what works (and what doesn’t)

You may have struggled long and hard.  Or maybe you never were really in the game ‘til now.

But as long as you haven’t heard the final whistle, you can still score the winning shot.  Funny thing is, no one will remember your failures.  You are playing the game of your life.  Don’t judge it before the game is finished!

Failure according to the Pareto Principle

Everyone knows about the Pareto 80/20 law: Twenty percent of your clients will give you 80% of your sales. Or 20% of your efforts will give you 80% of your results. (The problem is to know what 20% you need to focus on).

In the book “The Slight Edge” by Jeff Olson. The author says that during 80% of the time invested in a project, it is only in the last 20% that you will see results! Phew! Do we need perseverance or what!

Success is Failing as Fast as Possible. Those who would like to have the Power to Change their Future with an online business will fail… (at least once).  But this statistic isn’t to discourage people.  Far from it!

Is failure an inevitable condition for success?

Many champions in any area have failed countless times before reaching success.  It is learning to resist and get over the failure that distinguishes champions from the others.  Those that learn to “fail as fast as possible” (and get back on their feet) will be part of the next “success story”.

John Thornhill is the mentor who will give you the means to succeed.

John Thornhill, with his eBook, “Is Failure the Key to Success” will help you go to the core of what it takes to succeed in any area, whether it be sports, business, or your marriage.

Why buying ‘online courses’ doesn’t guarantee success.

Most people have spent a lot of money on courses on ‘how to make money online’.  Their computer is stacked with them.  If they could resell them they could probably go for a long vacation.

Is it because these courses don’t keep their promises?  Well maybe in some cases.  But the fact, is we buy into a dream to work from home and make money we need or want.  We no longer want to spend hours in traffic jams to get to the physical location of our job where we are busily making someone else rich.

But the real question is, “Are we ready to pay the price to get time freedom, money freedom, and geographical freedom”?

The ones who succeed, like in any endeavor, have a certain mind set.

With the Internet you can go from “failure thinking” to “success mentality”.

What is great about the Internet is that you can change the way you think.  The frustration you feel and the feeling that you are stuck in a “dead-end” is a result of decisions and reasoning you held it the past.

It may have been the right thing to do at the time but the world is changing fast and we are still clinging to outdated thinking.

What is fantastic with the Internet is that you can spend time through videos and eBooks with those who have done it!  We call them mentors.  It is absolutely necessary to decide to apply yourself and buckle down to force yourself to start making money with any online opportunity.  Why?

The specialists say that in the next 5 years (I’m writing this in January 2021) 40% of existing jobs are going online.  That means that either you learn to make money online or you learn to do without revenues (which is not an option!).

So here are the things John Thornhill says are holding us back from success:

You’ll never succeed online if you have the wrong mind set.

  • You will never succeed online if you quit at the first hurdle.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you think everything is too technical.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you want to earn money doing nothing.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you are part of the herd.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you don’t have your subscribers and customer’s interests at heart.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you don’t build a list.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you always moan about your current situation.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you think the world owes you
  • You’ll never succeed online if you think you don’t have the time.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you think having no money prevents you from being successful.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you are scared of failure.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you think everything online is a scam.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you keep jumping from product to product.
  • You’ll never succeed online if all you think about is making money.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you are not willing to help others.
  • You’ll never succeed online if you create poor quality work.

And the most important one to avoid permanent failure is:

  • You’ll never succeed online if you don’t have a mentor.

The last one is the most important key to success.  If you study those who have succeeded online, ALL of them decided one day to invest in a mentor.  You can so easily get lost in the labyrinth of what you need to learn.  A mentor keeps you on track.

Right now, I’m following John’s Partnership to Success course and I’m amazed at how good a teacher he is.
