So, as it turns out, I’m a fucking failure. I fact, I’ve failed so many times, I made a video about it, but failed to remember even more than ten failures I’ve made…
In addition to the ten I mention, I’ve also started an ecommerce store that didn’t pick up.. at all… I also forgot to mention the websites I’ve bought but never did anything with. The Digital Nomad Podcast never became a real thing, and I also failed when I was younger and tried getting my music on various record labels, back around 2002 or 2003 (somewhere in that era)..
But you know what? Fuck it. It’s OK! Why??? Because I kept at it. As far as music, I make a substantial part of my income making beats, because I loved doing it, so I KEPT DOING IT… And did I ever get on a label since then? I’ve had music released on a number of labels, and been on the radio, and even had a weekly music show for almost a year.
And some things I didn’t pursue – some things I just left so I could try more and see what else was out there. I explain it well in this “top ten” video, below:
So yea, fuck hating on failure so much. It’s fine to fail. In fact, if you’ve never failed, what the fuck have you been doing with your time? Was every single thing you did a success? I’m just gonna go on a limb here and assume the answer is “NO.” You NEED to fail, you NEED to be able to make your psyche durable and get back on that horse and try again, or try something different! Viva la failure, the great stepping stone to success.
So there you have it, some of my top failures. I know I’ve left out a lot. But I also made another video that’s just about failure in general, not just a top ten:
