you've never failed nike

 , how will you know when you're a success? I
was always top of the class at primary school. It seemed my natural place was at
the top. I wasn't a swot, mind. Just naturally brilliant! I became the first
pupil of that school to pass the eleven plus exam (don't worry – it's history)
in decades, and I was only aged 10! At grammar school, I found I wasn't quite so
clever. No longer did I shine effortlessly. But I still wasn't a swot! So from
the age of 10 until 13 I sank inexorably from the 'A' stream to the 'D' stream.
Then we moved and I went to a new school. It was much smaller. They only had two
streams – 'A' and 'B'. Naturally I was put into the 'B' stream. Suddenly, I was
top of the class again! Naturally brilliant once more! And still not a swot! I
was transferred to the 'A' stream. Now I settled towards the lower end of the
top third. But there were compensations. I was suddenly a sporting hero! The
school had just recently changed its winter sport from soccer to rugby. And I
had transferred from a rugby-playing school! I knew how to play this game! At
the age of 14 I was in the school first team! And what a first team it was! Our
pack was so heavy that we pushed every other team off the ball. We won game
after game. Great to be back on top. Academically though, I was still only a
little above average. I grew to dislike school. I didn't want to work and
without work could see I was never going to regain my natural position at the
top. I became passionate about wanting to join the RAF as a pilot. There were
many war films around at the time and I fancied myself as a Douglas Bader (with
legs) or a Guy Gibson of the Dam Busters. But I was blind as a bat! I even
failed the RAF scholarship selection board – not entirely because of my eyes, I
suspect. But I still nurtured ambitions in that direction so, when I collected
my handful of GCE passes nike

 , I stayed on into the sixth form. The
science sixth, naturally as I still wanted to fly. Suddenly I realised I had
made a dreadful mistake! I didn't understand what the teachers were talking
about! Calculus, pure and applied maths, physics. It was all gibberish! I had to
get out of there! Not only was I not at the top where I belonged – I was
drowning in a sea of incomprehensible jargon. I was a total failure!! My
previous slips from the pedestal I had erected for myself were as nothing
compared to this plunge into the abyss! I knew my parents would never agree to
me leaving school. They wanted me to be educated properly. 'A' levels,
university, a proper career. I suddenly became fascinated by quantity surveying.
Where that came from, heaven knows. But I realised that the next best thing to
university, in their eyes nike

 , would be to enter a recognised profession.
This was the only one I could come up with that did not require me to get 'A'
levels or a degree before I embarked upon it. Somehow I convinced them that I
really was interested and together we set out to find a suitable firm to which I
could become articled as a pupil. We found one. I was released from school! God
was back in his heaven and all was well again. Except that I was once more
expected to study. And, being the only pupil now, the boss could keep a watchful
eye on me and make sure I worked. Well, he could try. But remember I was
naturally brilliant so I did just enough to keep him happy. Which was not quite
enough to get me through the exams. So I left and embarked on a series of jobs
that kept me in beer and cigarettes for the next nine years or so. By now I was
twenty-seven and in the computer business. Eventually I found myself holding the
lofty post of marketing director in a very successful consultancy firm. We had
three offices in England and a further Swiss office to handle our business in
France, Holland, Germany, Austria and South America. Journalists hung on my
words; The Times published my letters. I was back where I belonged – on top! It
did not last, of course. Over the next thirty years my life became a roller
coaster of success and failure. From computers I moved into insurance. From
insurance to photography. Photography to taxis. Eventually back to computers.
I'd be at the top and then plunge to new depths as company or personal disaster
overtook me. I married nike

 , divorced. Tried again. Went from flats to
houses to bigger houses to rented rooms and back. Drove Mercedes and Lada,
Jaguar and Skoda. Rolls-Royce and 2CV. My point is that it is not merely okay to
fail. It is necessary! The point is it is only by comparison with the lows that
you really appreciate the highs. The point is; if you have always been at the
top, 'naturally brilliant', you'll never understand what others – like your
friends and colleagues – go through. If you have followed a well-worn career
path from school to now, you haven't lived! And you probably haven't taken any
risks either. And wherever you are – things can be better. But, in order to
progress, you must embrace the possibility (the inevitability!) of failure. Or
should I say 'feedback'? (I think it was Anthony Robbins who said there is no
such thing as failure, only feedback.) One way to move on is by networking.
Whatever you want from life is available but nike

 , as Martin Rutte has pointed out, 'You have to
do it by yourself and you can't do it alone'. So why not find the people who can
help you? If you need some help finding 'em, take a look at Networkaholics! As
for me, things seem to be pretty good – for now. I'm doing what I love to do and
I'm being very well rewarded for doing it. God knows how long it will last!
