|Last week Elon Musk’s Space X launched the biggest, heaviest rocket that has ever taken flight.
I love watching stuff like this – it allows my inner nerd to come out.
The launch was immense and impressive. It had 33 Raptor engines pushing it to the sky, although a few of them were damaged during liftoff and didn’t work.
Each launch costs Musk hundreds of millions and this is all private money for test launches. And this launch ended up self-destructing about two minutes into the flight.
On top of that, because of the incredible force from the engine at takeoff, the launch pad was torn to bits and needs to be extensively rebuilt.
Total failure, right?
Not so fast. Musk and his Space X crew consider the mission a resounding success. They knew everything wouldn’t go as planned. And they prepared for that by setting up systems to collect as much data as possible.
What they learned from that doomed test flight will allow them to move forward faster than if they stayed in their offices theorizing about everything on paper.
The same is true with probate real estate. Sure, you need to learn the process. But putting yourself out there talking to personal representatives is where the real learning takes place.
Early on you’ll have some successes. But you’ll also crash and burn once in a while too. That’s not a bad thing! When you’re part of a coaching group like our Probate Growth Accelerator, you bring your experience to your trusted group and learn how to turn those lemons into lemonade.
And when you’re with the right people, you can learn from their experiences so you can avoid their mistakes altogether.
Musk’s apparent failures are anything but that. They are steps toward incredible success.
To your success,
