EPISODE 497 - Success is Not Final but Failure is Fatal

Today Caleb Zysk and Jeffrey Eadon talk about the pitfalls of success and failure.


Let’s say you work really hard and get really successful, then you can stumble and fall backwards. When that happens you have the choice to pick yourself back up and move forward and see success again.


But when you fail yourself, when you quit on yourself, when you let go of yourself, that’s when failure is fatal.


For example, recently Jeff got hit by a van. He hurt his shoulder and damaged his leg. He could have taken it easy the past few weeks and rested up, but he didn’t. The same week Jeff got hit by the van, he was in the gym working out at least three times. He’s going again tomorrow, just so he can do rehab on his shoulder to strengthen it after the accident.


Here’s the thing, he’ll be back in the gym without the leg brace in probably 8 or 9 weeks. But he won’t be doing his regular routine any more. He’ll be going back to the basics until he builds himself back up again.


The same thing happened to both Jeff’s and Caleb’s businesses. They built them up to a certain point, and then they had setbacks. But they didn’t quit. They kept going. They did not allow their failures to be final.


Jeff rebuilt his business and took it to $10,000 a month. Caleb rebuilt his business and took it to $40,000 a month.


In your fitness journey, in your personal life, in your business, you will have ebbs and flows. That’s because success is not a linear progression.

I’ve Been There. I’ve Done That. Now Learn with Me.
