The path from failure to success is sometimes over-reported. The missing part is the story of how failure can be seen as Success Wrapped In Overalls.

Failure-to-success-kingsley-grantWhen I envision someone in overalls, I'm seeing a blue-collar worker working in a factory environment. The most image that readily comes to my mind is that of a car assembly workers clothed in a specialized jumpsuit or overalls. They are committed to getting a job done, which for them is a measurement of success.

Along the way, they experience both positive and negative experiences. The negative experiences could be seen as failures. But because they are committed to a mission of completing these cars, they learn from these experiences and forge ahead to create a finished product.These people are working change their careers so often.

Each negative experience becomes a learning rather than a failing experience.These people work hard at going after the end result.

So it is with yours and my setbacks that could derail us if we let it.

In this episode, I share how often we miss or may miss a much-needed piece of our entrepreneur success journey because we fail to see our failure as success wrapped in overalls.

I am confused in choosing between a medicine and a management profession. What are the pros and cons of each field so that I can make a decision?

I am interested in both fields but I'm more interested in the medical profession. My grades for the medical profession are low so that's why I am confused whether I should go for it or not! Please don't tell me to improve grades as I don't have much stamina to cram those s**t books again!!

I think you have a beginning place to find your answer. Your feedback from the grades serves as a process of elimination.

This does not mean you aren’t good at what you’re interested in as I’ve seen people who do not do well on tests go on to crush it in the area they’re passionate about.

However, I think instead of focusing on the pros and cons of each field to make a decision, I would suggest the other way around.

Which of the two are you most passionate about? You cannot do both at the same time. If you had to choose one, which would you choose?

Once you’ve decided that, look at your skill-set; your competency. Which are you most qualified to do?

It may come down to this last question of qualification as to which you choose.

I believe this approach will help you minimize the confusion you’re having.


Just in case you are wondering what are some of the website tools I use, here's two of them along with my best selling ebook.

(Full disclosure: If you purchase any of these items, I will get a small fee. There's no extra cost for you)

This is the PLUGIN that I use for all my pages. It has a very easy learning curve and it is very user friendly.
Every website must be hosted somewhere. I have used BLUEHOST for years. There are others out there but I have stuck with what works for me ...
This is one of my signature ebooks, which outlines my process of taking you from your conceptual ideas (passion) to a marketable product (profit). HERE
