“When we are dealing with failure it’s really about how we look at it and how we bounce back.”– Jacob Sapochnick
Failure is some people’s biggest fear. But should it be? We hear a lot from ’successful’ people about how learning to deal with ’failure’ was what propelled them forward in their lives. But the feeling of having failed at something is a horrible feeling. So how do you turn something that hasn’t gone how you wanted it to, into the first step towards success? Today Jacob goes out alone and talks about a letter that he received from a listener about failure and gives him some useful advice.
“The only thing that hurts more than losing is being on the bench when the time runs out.”– Jacob Sapochnick Play Podcast
In a change of format, this week Jacob responds to a letter that he received from a listener, talking about the fact that he ’failed’ in his law practise. Jacob talks about the meaning of failure, forgiving and learning, and how failure is often what helps us to make a success of our lives.
