Henry Ford. Walt Disney. Steve Jobs. Three wealthy businessmen who became hugely successful despite (or because of) suffering multiple failures along the way.
Not too long ago I talked about pausing every few months and giving your goals for the year a quick “check-up.”
Monitoring the progress of aspirations, and making periodic changes along the way, is needed to keep things on course. It’s better to find out if something is working well, or not working at all, early in the process. No one wants to burn up large amounts of time, energy and resources only to find out it was all for naught.

Allow me to share a recent and public “wipeout” with you. I hosted the Unleash Your Brilliance Summit, a teleseminar event where I interviewed a number of well-known and successful women entrepreneurs about how they live in their brilliance. I hosted the calls live, but for scheduling ease had pre-recorded my interviews with the guests so I could play them back during the calls. During the last interview, my playback system suddenly stopped. Thirty minutes into a fantastic hour-long interview with Barbara De Angelis, it went dead. I quickly got on the line, offered my apologies for the technical difficulties, offered to give a recording of the interview away as my gift to all those who’d registered and ended the Summit 20 minutes early.
