When you are trying to establish yourself within the entrepreneurial world, you often feel like you must avoid failure at all costs.

We reached out to Brian Dalmaso and Madison Dalmaso, the world’s first father and daughter coaching team, to discover ways in which we can view failure as a helpful stepping stone toward success. Having studied under the guidance of legendary author and speaker Bob Proctor, the duo now uses its training and experience to work together and offer solutions for success to both individuals and businesses. Let’s explore their insights on the unexpected positive power of failure.
A source of inspiration
Madison Dalmaso states that failure can be one of the greatest motivators to succeed. Seeing your plans hit a dead-end often inspires you to go back to the drawing board and strategize new ways to reach your goal. Brian Dalmaso agrees with this insight and adds that it’s incredibly important to remember that every failure offers you an invaluable learning opportunity.
Expanding on the concept of learning from your mistakes, Brain states that everything you learn from failure gets crystallized into an invaluable experience that you can use to create a roadmap to success. Madison believes that experience is one great tool that you can use to craft future success. According to Brian, discounting the setbacks you face as something to be buried and hidden robs you of hard-earned experience that you can use to reach success.
Resilience, according to Madison, is an invaluable form of armor that you can only acquire if you take a risk and suffer a setback. Facing failure forces you to pick yourself up and choose a new path. Brain believes that the more the failures a person has to overcome and move beyond, the more he/she builds up an impenetrable form of resilience.
Brian Dalmaso and Madison Dalmaso agree that as overwhelming it can be to face failure, it has the power to offer you more than it takes and become an unexpected stepping stone to success.
