Surround yourself with people who believing in doing EPIC things.
EPIC failures are simply EPIC stepping stones to your real deal.
I just saw “The Social Network” movie last week.
Sean Parker, the creator of Napster, changed the music industry (EPIC), but got his pants sued off of him, and didn’t make money from the company (FAILURE). He went on to have two more EPIC crash-and-burns at subsequent companies. All that “epic failure” prepared him for when the Facebook opportunity came along. He’s now allegedly a billionaire, thanks to his well-timed mentoring of Mark Zuckerberg. A flawed example, but an example nonetheless.
If you don’t have the courage to act again, surround yourself with people who are accustomed to leaping, falling, dusting themselves off, and trying again. It may not be natural to your personality… but it does rub off. Your peer group’s approach and attitude is contagious. So find people who are okay with 10 EPIC FAILS on their way to 1 EPIC SUCCESS. They’ll get you back on the horse, and back on the path to EPIC-CITY. – Bolaji O.
