You can’t have success without failure: What business owners can learn from Walt Disney, Steve Jobs and JK Rowling

Look at the history of any successful person, and you’ll spot a bloody trail of failures dotted behind them.

Sir James Dyson went through 5,126 failed prototypes over 15 long years, before finally hitting on one that worked. As he told Entrepreneur in 2012: “Failure is interesting — it’s part of making progress. You never learn from success, but you do learn from failure.” 

Before he went on to lead Apple to earth-shattering success, Steve Jobs was fired from the company he co-founded. He’d overseen a line of product failures, including the Lisa and the Apple 3, and was eventually ousted over an argument with the board. 

Walt Disney was fired by his newspaper’s editor because he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.”

JK Rowling was rejected by 12 publishers before finally finding one who would publish Harry Potter. Steven Spielberg was rejected from film school three times.

Their stories teach us an important lesson: that in order to be successful, you need to fail multiple times. If you’re not failing, you’re not smashing the boundaries hard enough.

These famous failures are embedded deep into the public consciousness, but there’s a serious problem. When we try to apply those stories to our own businesses and lives, we can’t seem to come up with a plan of attack. Even using examples of mistakes from our own lives, we seem to find it painful to look back and learn from them.

Why? Well, first of all, our approach to happiness is completely out of whack. Our society is obsessed with the hedonic approach to wellbeing, which sees happiness as attaining pleasure and avoiding pain at all costs. We’re constantly trying to chase that positive emotional high and avoid any kind of pain.
