HOW TO FAIL YOUR WAY TO SUCCESS

WHAT THIS IS ABOUT

  • The Wrestling Business can Really Suck Sometimes
  • It can be soul-crushing
  • At Any Moment, It Seems Like You're on the Brink of Failure

Who This is For

Who This is For

  • You feel you're one wrong move away from getting heat and everything blowing up
  • Afrad to make a misstep and lose your spot
  • Frustrated with doing EXACTLY what you're told will work, and you still get kayfabed

What Happens is Wrestlers Learn to Play Not to Lose

THE FALSE PROBLEM

  • You think the problem is you're not supposed to get heat or ever fail
  • So wrestlers become quieter, nicer, more studious and respectful, don't ruffle feathers
  • But things stay the same or get WORSE

THE REAL PROBLEM

  • The real problem is they haven't realized that wrestling is NOT a straight line and never will be
  • Everyone's who's successful has failed many times, so by avoiding failure, you're actually putting success further into the future.

What We Want...

  • Is to have the most straightforward path to the top while maximizing the upsides and minimizing the downsides
  • The problem is, if you're going to have a career with no problems, you're going to have a career with no progress.
