Presentation: I’m A HUGE Failure, Are You?

Are you a HUGE failure? Or are you a loser? Maybe you’re a quitter? Maybe you’re all of the above? Or maybe, just maybe… you’re really successful, but you think you’re a failure?

The truth is, anyone can be successful if they understand that we all fail, and then realize the reasons why success comes to some people.

The presentation below is one I gave at Las Vegas Wordcamp in early 2009. It covers topics such as success and failure, and is designed to motivate, educate and inspire you to being more successful in life and business ventures. I hope you enjoy it. Please share your feedback in the comments.

Special thanks go to @micah for recording it with his Flip HD camera.

Actual Amazon.com Reviews...

"Jim Kukral's new book pisses me off. And not because it's a lousy book, and reading it was a waste of time. His book pisses me off because in it, Jim interviews really, really, successful people who ARE living their dreams. And, I'm jealous. I want a turn, you know?" - Joel Libava

"I loved this short, informative, encouraging e-book. The stories of others who have been successful building a business around their lifestyle is a wake up call for me to get off my butt and do it! Thanks Jim for this book!" - Sienna

"I was having kind of a blah day, I read this book, now I feel like a million bucks and have renewed inspiration to go make a million bucks." - Eric Woodard

    “anyone can be successful if they understand that we all fail”

    Inspiring. I used to be really depressed whenever I fail at something, until someone told me that I won't succeed if I keep on playing safe and avoiding failure. I realized that I HAD to learn from my mistakes before I can move forward.

    I've heard that success feels like failure 90% of the time, and this can often be the case, because the reality is, we see profits from a very small percentage of our efforts.

    I believe it's Dan Kennedy that says to fail as fast as possible, because there's no getting around it, and the faster you fail the faster you will find the winners. Anyway, great post.

    Just like in golf, you have to go to the driving range and fail over and over again until your game is perfected (I guess the same could be said about any sport, but I like the golf analogy).

    Hey Jim! Great presentation. When I first started working in advertising I was taught the single most important thing that you have highlighted in your presentation: KISS – Keep it Simple Stupid. (that is besides soucherag of course). People don't want or need overcomplicated explanations – they want simple, fast results. And the only way that we, as online marketers, can continue to provide those results is to not be afraid to try new things, and to follow through til the very end. Thanks for sharing!

    Very inspiring.Before I succeeded making money with my blog I was trying for a long time and thought of quitting many many times.What´s the point when you don´t get any results no matter how hard you are trying? Well, I kept going and the reason to my failure was that I did the wrong things.I understood what the problem was and learned how to do things the right way.
