Learning To Grow—How Failure Can Make You Succeed

In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk with Jim Harshaw—JimHarshawJr.com.

Jim is a motivational speaker, former Division 1 All-American Wrestler who won three ACC championships for the University of Virginia. He was the youngest Division 1 coach at age 26! He also trained at the Olympic Training Center and competed overseas for Team USA!

Jim, who learned many life lessons on the wrestling mat, relates those powerful lessons of failure, struggle, and setbacks to empower his audiences to overcome their own challenges and achieve success despite their inevitable failures.

He joins us this week to discuss how important failure is, and how important a good support system is, too.

Some things we cover:

  • The good things that come out of failing
  • The key to a great support system
  • Why giving up is worse than failure
  • How to avoid repeated failures

Jim is here to make sure that no matter how rough things get and how hard you fall, there’s always a good way to look at a situation, and that’s no different in your business. Life likes to get in the way sometimes, and Jim shows Mark and Scott how to keep it from hurting you and your business.

Don’t fail to listen in to this episode!

TIP OF THE WEEK

Mark: Learn more about Jim Harshaw at JimHarshawJr.com and watch the TEDx talk. Also, listen in to the podcasts, and just engage in the wisdom of a Jim Harshaw Jr. It could be a daily motivational practice.

Scott: Check out the book, The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz. This book got me thinking about how important it really is to think big—not little things, but big things.

Jim: To do the productive pause ask yourself this question out loud, “What’s holding me back?” Answer it out loud to yourself. You will get so much value out of that. Don’t stop with the line of questioning until you come to action.

Isn’t it time to create passive income so you can work where you want, when you want and with whomever you want?
