Robert Kiyosaki, entrepreneur and author of the “Rich Dad” book series, believes that taking risks and failing gave him the greatest opportunities for growth. Here are his three steps for transforming failure into success:
1. Avoid blaming others. This only deflects your negative feelings, and you won’t learn.
2. Start new partnerships. Some people you meet through any enterprise, even if it fails, can become assets.
3. Critique yourself. Ponder your mistakes. If you learn from them, you can avoid making new ones.
