Failing Forward


Do you want to be successful? According to John C. Maxwell, the difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure. Successful people don’t brush failure aside, they don’t run away from it, instead, they think, sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.

Failing Forward?

I want to take a few minutes here to explain why I created this course. A while back when I decided to resign and pursue my Purpose I really did not know how my life would pan out nor did I have answers to the many questions my near and dear ones asked me. All I was certain about is that I wanted to be the change that I want to see. I wanted to put myself out there and be counted for something. I believed that since my product is good, speaks to the soul and is life hanging, everyone would want a piece of it. And indeed, what I offer is truly transformational, but it requires a lot of heart. It is not for the faint-hearted!
