Three Things We Learned From This Episode

  1. Failure isn’t the opposite of success
    Success and failure aren’t on different roads. They are both a part of growth and progress. In order for you to succeed, you have to be okay with failure.
  2. You should have the right dynamic with your coach
    Sometimes a coach can be great as a friend, but you may need a different dynamic in order to grow. There’s nothing wrong with this, and the right coach will help you find a person you fit best with.
  3. Don’t chase perfection
    Perfection is not realistic. The more you try to attain it, the more it will hinder your growth and success. Don’t try to avoid making mistakes because the truth is: in order to grow and correct your course, mistakes are necessary.

The value of systems and models is that they help you get your life back. Leverage is fundamental to your growth and freedom as a business owner. It’s also important to get the help and guidance you need and to stop chasing perfection. Focus instead on learning from mistakes and failures rather than avoiding them.
