“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” ― Maya Angelou
Last Monday We announced the launch of our new podcast, “What Are You Failing At?” Since then, We’ve had several entrepreneurs and educators express interest in discussing their current creative challenges along with the lessons they’re learning in real-time.
This past week, I was able to sit down with Jeffrey Tucker, who is the CEO of Liberty.me, a publisher of Laissez Faire Books, and also a Distinguished Fellow of the Foundation for Economic Education. Jeffrey was gracious enough to stop by the Praxis Opening seminar to talk about creativity and success with our participants for the Fall 2014 class. You can check out the highlights from his talk here.
In our candid conversation, Jeffrey opened up about his creative challenges and shared a few valuable lessons he’s learning from his current failures.
Jeffrey Tucker and I had such a blast talking to each other that we decided to switch things around by having him interview me for his podcast. We had a fun time discussing the Praxis program and what makes this Fall’s group of participants unique.
You can watch his interview of me via the clip below.
Lastly, in keeping with the theme of our podcast, failure as an essential condition for success and personal growth, I’ve included an inspiring short clip of Laurence Weinzimmer, co-author of ‘The Wisdom of Failure,’ talking to Darren Hardy about the importance of celebrating our failures as much as our successes.
We hope you enjoy this week’s episodes of the podcast and that you’ve benefited from listening to the Laurence Weinzimmer clip.
Stay tuned for more updates on the podcast and until next week, keep failing forward.
