With the month of March being Women’s Month, 600 Global is celebrating the incredible women with whom we’re lucky to work, and from whom we’re fortunate to learn. As we continue our 3-part series, hopefully, you’ll find yourself a little wiser! If you missed part one you can read it here.
“Failure is so important. We speak about success all the time. It is the ability to resist failure or use failure that often leads to greater success. I’ve met people who don’t want to try for fear of failing.” — J.K. Rowling
When we look at successful people and see the ‘finished project,’ sometimes we don’t realize how many mistakes they have made along the way to get them where they are today. But, as J.K. Rowling reminds us, failure is a normal and natural part of becoming successful.
One of the differences between successful and unsuccessful people is that successful people aren’t afraid to fail. It sounds, perhaps, counterintuitive. Unsuccessful people get stuck inside their own comfort zones. They are afraid to push themselves for fear of the unknown. Successful people know that this is the very thing that will separate them from the pack. They are always pushing the boundaries, trying new things, falling on their faces, getting back up again, learning, growing, and ultimately winning.
“Career choice and progression doesn’t have to fit into the standard societal mold. Do what you love and want to do. Find what you’re good at, what you can sell or provide that is unique to you and go for it.” — Dana Donofree, owner, AnaOno
When it comes to our careers, doesn’t it often feel like everyone and his mother wants to give his two cents? Most of us at 600 Global can relate. One thing we’ve learned is the importance of following your own path. If the typical career trajectory isn’t for you, own it! Some of the most successful people on the planet are those who have gone their own ways.
