Preview: The Power Of Failure: The Hidden Side Of Success

by Jacob Ehrnstein

Everyone wants to be successful. We all have our different versions of success, financial, emotional, or physical. And we all have our role models for whom we identify what success is. We try and emulate them to achieve that success.

But what if you had the opportunity to meet your role model of success and they uttered these words to you “Fail More”?

Camille Sweeney and Josh Gosfield the authors of “The Art Of Doing: How Superachievers Do What They Do” will speak on the topic of failure at their panel “The Power of Failure: The Hidden Side of Success.” They’re experts on the topic of failure now, though, not because of failures of their own. After interviewing super successful people they discovered one common trait these successful people shared: their willingness to fail.

I spoke with Camille and Josh about their upcoming panel in March and some ways to take your failures and help them propel you to your next success. Continue reading “Interview With Us for Upcoming Talk at SXSW ’14”

The Art of Doing is Going Back to SXSW, March 2014

We all love to read books on success. We even wrote one, “The Art of Doing: How Superachievers Do What They Do and How They Do It So Well.” What we found about the successful people that we interviewed—superachievers in the arts, business, media and tech—is that they failed and failed often. And those failures were key to their success.

We all love to read books on success. We even wrote one. What we found about the successful people that we interviewed—superachievers in the arts, business, media and tech—is that they failed and failed often. And those failures were key to their success.

But embracing failure isn’t always easy.

From the fear of failure that stops you from even trying, to the collapse of will when you don’t achieve the immediate success you’d imagined, cognitive attitudes to failure can destroy your ability to pursue you goals. The good news? If, like highly successful people, you perceive your setbacks as opportunities for self-education and motivation instead of events that will permanently derail you, you may surprise yourself with how far you can go.
