Allowing yourself to fail

James Dyson has invented one of the most iconic household appliances of recent times, the Dyson vacuum cleaner.

His invention was a game changer for the industry. Innovative, stylish and suddenly vacuum cleaners were cool and desirable.

How did he manage that? How do you make a vacuum cleaner a “must have” lifestyle accessory?  The answer is through failure. Dyson made 5, 127 prototypes of the vacuum cleaner to get it right. It took years of trials and development.

So if you are pursuing a goal or dream, don’t allow yourself to be distracted by failure. The key is to learn from it, as Dyson did and move forward. Keeping your eye on your goal.
