My plan to redefine failure has a new partner: fellow Oklahoman D. Scott Cooksey, author of Powerful People Overcome Powerful Failures, Your Daily Guide to Becoming Powerfully Successful.
Cooksey isn’t shy about owning up to his own failures. We had a great conversation about responding to failure. He gets it. That’s why he wrote such a great book. It’s a daily workbook. Here’s the entry for September 15:
My father was not a failure. After all, he was the father of a President of the United States.
-Harry S. Truman
Oftentimes you do not know the impact of life decisions until much later. Who made the choice to touch your life in a way that allowed that person to celebrate in your success, thus celebrating the individual’s own impact on you?
Then there is room for you to record some thoughts, which you’d better do, because it’s followed with a space for a six month follow up. That is a such a smart approach because changing attitudes toward failure is a long term project.
Cooksey is on Twitter, too, @dscooksey.
Since we’re neighbors, I’m looking forward to lots of future projects together.
