Are You Failing? Change Your Mindset to Learning or Earning

I have an advantage. Do you? I have a mastermind group. Every Monday, I meet with these 10 guys for an hour. We’ve gathered consistently for years. I wish they lived in my town but they don’t. They are my friends, my advisors, my coaches. Really they’re my board of directors for life and business.

Why do I mention all this? Because I quit Failing years ago and you can too.

My mastermind group offers me advantages beyond these 10 guys though that may be enough. My group, as a part of Iron Sharpens Iron provides me access to the founder Aaron Walker AND 15 other groups just like mine with varied experiences, expertise, backgrounds, beliefs. The camaraderie created by this environment make them accessible to me and vice-versa.

Recently we joined a call with Jay Allen Samit where we could visit with him and hear is story and ask him questions. He shared a quote, I’m pretty sure I heard before:

There is no failure you’re either earning or learning.

–Jay Allen Samit

He writes books–successfully…not because he needs the success but because he needs to help people. If you have a chance grab his old book Disrupt You (affiliate) ( Or check out his new book.
