Great article Simon. Failure is the most important component to achieving true success in any area of your life.


Headsettet har en svært viktig posisjon i computer periferiutstyr. Spill, musikk, video, Dre Beats overalt. Kafeer, kontorer og andre anledninger, Beats by Dre, er en viktig produkt av databrukere. Marked Beats by Dre Studio merkevaren mange produktlinjer er også svært homogen, fra enkle hodetelefoner ca 10 yuan til hundre yuan, et par hundre dollar til flere tusen dollar i high-end hodetelefoner, statiske lytter til Dr Dre Beats. Å plukke et par av pris, god kvalitet, er merkekjennskap ikke rart, kan du være litt forvirret og engstelig. Det finnes nær titalls til modellene kjente til de velkjente merker av produkter, er det nesten ikke navn pris lav såkalt no-name er ikke forferdelig parallellimport, gjorde du ikke tør garantere å selge virksomheter også kan ikke garantere din lomme pengene de aldri ville gjøre en slik garanti.

Which proves, Simon, that there's no such thing as failure only constant improvement when you come back for more. What a Babe!!

very true. Thanks for that nugget, Simon. To me, it shows that when you give it your all (aiming for a homerun), you're bound to strike out more than most. Pretty inspirational... Thanks for the lift.

Reminds me of Wayne Gretsky's quote: “You miss 100% of the shots you never take.”

Along the lines of not being afraid to strike out, I would add that when you do strike out, don't let it overwhelm you or prevent you from trying again. As you pointed out, obviously Babe Ruth didn't let it get to him.
In fact, all kinds of successful people have "struck out" plenty of times, but they've all learned how to look past the sting of their failure, find the positive, and try again.

I have been using a baseball anology in my public speaking lately. I didn't know this story, but it is right on target. So many business owners want success, but worry along the way of how it looks. I say a home run is a home run, no matter how you slide into the plate! Love your article!


Great article, Simon! Very inspiring and also very appropriate with baseball season coming soon. Didn't know about Babe Ruth's strike out record...very interesting!
