WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT? I have run a business and faced many of the challenges you now face. I was for 29 years a credit union CEO, and prior to that in in consumer finance. I am a Vietnam Vet.

No prescriptions without a diagnosis.

HOW IT WORKS: We begin by talking by telephone about your organization, your vision, and what does success look like. I start with a blank page and simply listen. I request 30-minutes initially, and then schedule a follow-up call to share what I feel is the best solution for you.

Why Failure Can be Good

Failure is

How do you view failure? Do you see it as something negative that you do not want to be associated with or do you see it as something positive? Most people in the world do not like a failure.

Fear of failure is the main reason why more than 80% of people in the world are not prepared to change their circumstances. Why do people fear failure so much? The reason for this is that people do not understand the dynamics involved in success and failure.

Everything we do in life has a right way of doing it and a wrong way of doing it. When we do it the right way we meet with success. Needless to say, that when we do it the wrong way we are unsuccessful.

Understanding this is important because it puts failure in its proper perspective and removes the fear around it.

When someone who does not understand this dynamic meets with temporary failure, he or she gives up thinking he or she is not good enough or he or she will never make it. But is this really what it is? Does the fact that you did not make it the first time mean you are not good enough? Does it mean you will never make it? Not at all! All it means is YOU HAVE NOT FOUND THE CORRECT METHOD YET!

So what do you do next? You go back and find out where you went wrong. Then you try again this time employing a different method. If this does not work you go back and look at everything you have done so far. Talk to successful people who have made it in this area. Think of what you might have left out and try again.

Whatever you do, do not give up. Why do you need to do this? Because, "Every failure, every adversity, and every heartache carries with it the seed of an equivalent or a greater benefit", says author and mentor to many great men, Napoleon Hill. Failure contains the seed of victory and of success.

Failure teaches you what works and what does not. When you study the reasons for your failure and learn from it, you will find the key to your success. The great inventor, Thomas Edison, knew this truth better than anyone else did. It took Edison 8,000 trials to perfect the Edison battery. Afterward, he uttered this famous quote, "At least we know 8,000 things that don't work."

You should also be like that. Every successful person has had to overcome temporary defeat at one time or another. Know this! You have not really failed until you ACCEPT defeat. Do you envy those who got success easily? Do not! Success earned in spite of earlier failure is so much sweeter than if you would get it otherwise.
