It is after reading this book my life got transformed… It was during 2004 I got this book and finished reading it at one go…
My Situation: My company was in near disaster when 35 out of 40 of my staff resigned in less than 2 weeks..
That was the first time I came across an attrition and I was almost collapsed… I got convinced that my four year entrepreneur journey has come to an end..
It was after reading this book that I got the confidence to fight back… The book taught me how to approach failure… My entire perception about failure changed and I stared looking for opportunity and lessons from every failure…
The book talks about ways of turning setbacks to success and it is conveyed with 27 real life cases..
I keep reading this book when ever I feel demotivated… Till now I would have read this book more than 50 times and I keep gifting this book to entrepreneur friends…
A small snippet about Failure from the book;
Old Definition:A negative, fatal, and final result indicating:
- An inability to perform and a lack of success
- A falling short because of ineptness, deficiency, or negligence
- A bad, bad thing that should be avoided, mourned, and punished.
New Definition: A short-term unexpected result that reflects a challenge in progress and that provides:
- A stepping-stone to success
- An opportunity for learning and development
- An opportunity for creative change and innovation.
