I spent a good 8 hours creating this inspirational video about the topic ‘failure’.
If you choose not to accept failure, it does not exist. Enjoy!
There are 4 incredibly successful people who I really look up to as rolemodels for inspiration and motivation:
- Michael Jordan
- Lance Armstrong
- Jay Z
- Will Smith
I decided to create a video using quotes about ‘failure’ from my rolemodels. The reason for this is that so many of us (myself included) are in the early stages of our journey to success. Sometimes it feels like we really suck. It feels like we cannot do anything right and we mess up over and over again. This can be very demotivating and can even lead to us discarding our goals and stop working on them alltogether. Often we quit when we are so close to achieveing success. Right about that time where you feel like you cannot do it anymore is the time when you are just about to make a big break-through.
These 4 amazing people are incredibly successful and have probably ‘failed’ more times than you and I together, which is exactly the reason they are so successful. The only difference is their mindset. When they ‘fail’ at something, they learn from it and only become more determined to become successful at it. What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.
My favorite quote about failure is by Michael Jordan. You have probably heard me say it a few times, but it resonates with me so much that I just like to repeat it whenever I have the chance:
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
I hope you enjoyed my video project. I am very excited about the idea of creating videos. In my head I can see awesome footage and how I would want it to come across, but in reality, making a video is a lot harder that it seems. It takes hours of work and can be frustrating. However, I really enjoyed making this video and happily spent the hours to make it. One day I wil be the next Steven Spielberg!
