Fail Until You Don’t: Fight. Grind. Repeat. by Bobby Bones.
Bobby Bones is the host of a popular radio program, a bestselling author, a comedian, and a dedicated philanthropist. He is the youngest person ever inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame and has reached the top of his profession. But he reveals that much of what made him so successful were mistakes and and embarrassing failures. He shows how he was able to use the humility they gave him to find the motivation to get back out there, learn from them, and ultimately succeed.
The author says that his mantra is Fight. Grind. Repeat. By refusing to give up and being determined to overcome all obstacles, including your own failures, you can achieve your goals. He shares many of his biggest mistakes and how they helped him. He also shares stories from many other successful people showing their failures and how they used them to grow and prosper. He then gives ideas and strategies for anyone looking to overcome seemingly impossible odds and succeed whatever the goal or dream may be.
