    There are lots of paths to take in life. Only a few lead to success. In this episode, I reveal a framework about the environment you need to create to find success despite, and often because of, failure, so that you can finally move from where you’re at to where you want to go.
    There are so many critical gaps that are missing from the message about how to create success. 
    “Post your goals on the mirror.”
    “Read books.”
    “Have a good attitude.”
    You’ve heard them all. 
    While these are a good start, they’re incomplete. They're not telling you the whole story. 
    In this episode, I close these gaps using a crystalized 4-step framework so you can insulate yourself from the negative effects of failure and at the same time leverage the benefits of failure, so that you can get from here to there— whatever your desired “there” may be! Listen now.

Great podcast, great message. I signed up for Jim’s coaching a couple years ago while I was struggling. Jim helped turn my business and life around. Years later he still checks in with me and really cares about his clients and helping them succeed. Give the pod and Jim a try!
