  • Most people don't reach their dream not because of failure

  • most people don't live their dream because they give up

  • you see it's not the failure that stops us

  • but that most stopped at their first failure.

  • Those who succeed don't stop at one failure

  • they don't stop at ten failures

  • they don't stop at a hundred or a thousand or a million

  • they say "this is my goal, and I will do whatever it takes to achieve it.

  • I will learn the lessons from any failures

  • I will learn faster, I will work harder, I will work smarter

  • and I will not quit until my dream is a reality"

  • That's the difference between success and failure.

  • Failure is a massive part of being able to be successful

  • You have to get comfortable with failure, you have to actually seek failure

  • failure is where all of the lessons are

  • you know, when you go to the gym and you work out

  • you're actually seeking failure, you want to take your muscles to the point where you get to failure

  • because that's where the adaptation is, that's where growth is.

  • Successful people fail a lot, they fail a whole lot more than they succeed.

  • They extract the lessons from the failure, and they use that- the energy

  • and they use the wisdom to come around to the next phase of success.

  • Gotta take a shot, you have to live at the edge of your capabilities

  • you gotta live where you're almost certain you're gonna fail

  • the reason for practice, practice is controlled failure

  • you're getting to your limit, getting to your limit, getting to your limit

  • you can't lift that, you can't do that

  • until you get to the point that all of a sudden your body makes the adjustment

  • and then you can do it.

  • failure actually helps you to recognize the areas where you need to evolve

  • so fail early, fail often, fail forward.

  • Failure makes winners stronger, failure makes winners hungrier

  • but it makes most give up

  • it makes most feel worthless.

  • Winners don't enjoy failure

  • but they would never let failure stop them.

  • next time you encounter failure

  • you got to remember every great thing on this planet is here

  • because the creator learned what did work but learned more from what did not work.

  • When we are kids, we don't stop at failure

  • when we first learned to ride a bike, it's failure after failure

  • we get knocked down time after time

  • but we get up and push forward, It's so we'll achieve our goal of riding the bike

  • but then, we get old and most of us get weak

  • we are too soft to get back on the bike.

  • We come up with excuses

  • it must not be for me!

  • No, you just soft

  • no, you just lazy.

  • Tell yourself the truth

  • get back on the bike

  • learn why you failed

  • and make sure you don't fall again

  • make sure you are stronger for having the lesson.

  • You know it's always a little bit frustrating to me

  • when people have a negative relationship with failure.

  • Fail early, fail often, fail forward.

  • You're here right now at this moment

  • because tomorrow you want to be somebody greater than the person you are today.

  • You see yourself succeeding

  • you have a vision

  • you have a dream

  • Congratulations, you're already ten steps ahead of 95% of the world.

  • Imagine if Michael Jordan was scared of missing

  • he would have never taken a shot.

  • Imagine if Steve Jobs was afraid of people not liking his product

  • there would be no iPhone.

  • So, ask yourself this, do you want to be a person who fears failure?

  • or do you want to be a person who loves success?

  • which one?

  • you gonna have to pick today

  • and I'll tell you one thing

  • one is a failure, and one is a success

  • and If you love success, there is nothing that can stop you

  • all those negative things people say will mean nothing.

  • They're gonna talk about how only 1% make it to the top

  • big deal, wanna know something else?

  • Only 1% stick with that fitness program long enough to see results

  • only 1% of nerds stick with that video game long enough to get good at it

  • only 1% of relationships stick it out to the end.

  • That doesn't mean you have a 1% chance

  • it just means you can't behave like the 99%

  • you'll have to do something better than giving up a month from now

  • those are just numbers.

  • You want to talk about numbers

  • take a look around you and take a good look around you

  • are you like 99% of the people around you?

  • If you are, then you're in the wrong video my friend

  • You have to love success just as much

  • because that's gonna allow you to get up and go for it.

  • Being scared to fail won't do anything

  • in fact, when you love success and you start going for it

  • guess what happens?

  • You're gonna fail, you're gonna fail ten times, a hundred times

  • maybe even a thousand times, but that's okay

  • failure isn't permanent

  • falling isn't permanent.

  • You get right back up and keep going

  • and this time you're gonna be stronger, wiser and you'll be more driven than ever

  • and for every ten failures, you'll land one success.

  • You have to love success so much

  • that you're willing to fail ten times before you can succeed once

  • that's how a winner does it

  • I wanna explain the biggest myth that most people think leads them to success

  • and here's the myth

  • You might believe if you're scared to fail you won't fail.

  • Lies, biggest myth ever

  • and I believed it.

  • You see, I always thought that being scared to fail in life

  • would literally keep me from failing

  • I would look at the losers around me and I would say

  • " sheesh, I never want to turn out like him"

  • I really believed this train of thought would help me succeed

  • until one day

  • I was walking down the street and I saw an old man

  • had a hat, suspenders and a cane

  • was about 80 years old.

  • This old man was barely walking, he could walk but the cane helped a lot, he was struggling.

  • So anyway, he was walking across the street and he ended up falling

  • so I went over to go help him

  • and he gets up saysthank youand we introduce ourselves

  • had a little conversation, told me his name and I told him mine

  • his name was Robert by the way

  • and right as he walked away I told him, this is what I said

  • Robert, you should stay inside where it's safe my friend

  • and Robert turns around and says to me

  • “I love walking, and I love walking way more than I'm afraid of falling

  • So, I asked him well

  • "what about your safety? don't you want to live?"

  • and he told me this, these are the exact words he said, he said this

  • Solo, living means doing what you love to do

  • and if I have to fall here and there to do what I want to do in life, then so be it

  • and he just walked away, never saw him again, that was it.

  • But that statement really had me thinking and it had me thinking hard

  • because I learned something that day.

  • That's when I realized the true key to success

  • you see, I always thought if I could just fear the act of failing and if I fear it like crazy

  • I will succeed

  • because I thought the fear would magically motivate me to get out there and start taking action

  • but after that day uh-uh

  • I realized something

  • I realize it's the love for success that will lead me to succeeding.

  • So, just imagine if Robert feared falling

  • would he even start walking?

  • of course not

  • he wouldn't even do what he loved to do

  • he would sit at home and take no type of action

  • but he loved walking

  • wasn't even scared to fall

  • it gave him life

  • that's what allowed him to get up and do it.

  • He loved walking so much, he was willing to fall 10 times a day just to do it

  • and you have to be the same

  • So the next time someone tells youyou're gonna fail

  • you know what you tell them

  • Tell them they're right

  • but you're not afraid to fail, you're not afraid to take action

  • you're not afraid to jump

  • you're gonna fail 10 times but you know what

  • It's cool because on the 11th time you'll succeed

  • oh, you'll succeed alright

  • and it will feel good

  • and while you're over here living the life of your dreams in complete happiness

  • guess where they're gonna be?

  • That's right, they'll be failures, the real failures

  • over there where it's safe, scared to fail

  • ironic, isn't it?

  • You know

  • a lot of people come up to me and they ask me "Marco

  • what is it that motivates you most?”

  • and to answer their question, I reply back with a question

  • I saywhat if I told you that you had one week left to live?”

  • would you regret not pursuing your dreams, passions and desires?

  • would you regret not living your life to the fullest?

  • would you regret not spending as much time with your family, friends, or loved ones?

  • You know Steve Jobs said in a speech one time that

  • he used to wake up every morning, look in the mirror and ask himself questions like this

  • and he said that if the answer was yes for too many days in a row

  • then he knew that he had to change something

  • and that should go for all of us.

  • If you're living a life that you would not be okay with losing

  • because you weren't able to do things you wanted to do

  • then now you know that you need to change something.

  • Life is simply too short and unpredictable

  • to not live exactly the way that you please.

  • It is ridiculously unpredictable

  • it is possible that on any given day to die at any point throughout that day

  • without ever being able to see it coming.

  • you know when I was 13, I had this teacher who was an absolutely amazing person

  • I'd known him for several years then

  • and he had two kids, a loving wife, he was a man of God

  • contributed to the community, he gave us everything that he had

  • and he would bike to school every single day

  • I always remember him coming to school on his bike

  • and one morning on his way to school, It was early in the morning

  • he was crossing an intersection, a reckless driver comes out of nowhere

  • hits him, he dies on the spot on the moment of impact.

  • His death taught me so many valuable things in life

  • and one of them being that it went on to show

  • that no matter how much you don't deserve to die

  • and no matter how good of a person you are

  • and no matter what your situation is, no matter anything

  • it goes to show that death is inevitable and random

  • and it will eventually consume each and every single one of us

  • whether it's in 50 years, in 10 years, next year, or even tomorrow.

  • You cannot control it

  • the people around you cannot control it.

  • As long as you're at the wrong place at the wrong time

  • your whole life could disappear in the blink of an eye

  • along with everything you wished you could have done

  • whether you're walking down the street

  • whether you're stepping into the elevator

  • whether you're walking down the stairs

  • whether you're, whether you're just existing.

  • Listen you'll see people from nowhere die of a heart attack, gone

  • no family history, no symptoms, no cause, nothing

  • it happens and that's the cruel life that we live in

  • and it's something that we cannot control.

  • So, what I wanna make clear

  • is that regardless of the path that you take in your life

  • at one point death will consume you

  • it doesn't care whether you floss your teeth in the morning

  • whether you raise a family or not

  • whether you go on to be rich, poor, a success, a failure

  • whether whatever, you are still going to die at one point, it is that simple

  • and knowing that you're going to die soon should be the biggest motivation

  • to both make the difficult decisions in life

  • and to get your ass out of bed in the morning.

  • So, now the question becomes, what is it that you truly have to lose?

  • If you pursue your dreams and you fail

  • sure you might be a little bit more financially unstable

  • you might experience stress or other feelings you wish you never had to experience

  • but either way, even if you fail you will end up back to where you started

  • which is where you are now.

  • So, what do you literally have to lose?

  • some of you right now, you're thinking about maybe starting a business

  • you have a great idea that you wanna incorporate into your lifestyle

  • maybe you're thinking about pursuing your dreams to the fullest

  • maybe you're thinking about putting in the work

  • to become a doctor, an engineer, a firefighter, a professional athlete

  • but some of you won't follow these ambitions because you're afraid

  • you're afraid to fail, you let the fear of failure dictate your actions

  • and you're afraid of what mom or papa thinks

  • you're afraid of what your sister, your brother thinks

  • or your grandpa, your grandma or your cousins or whoever.

  • But what truly matters is, is you

  • you are in possession of a gift

  • you have a talent and whatever that talent is

  • you can make yourself and the people around you a stronger and better place with it.
