We are discussing the many elements and depths related to achieving success with Sean Douglas, CEO of The Success Corp. Is failure an option on the way to success? Is risk a necessary evil? Is it possible that different people measure success differently? Is success fluid and does it change with different seasons of life? Is it possible to be successful and still be unhappy? Should we stop comparing our success with other people’s or is there value in doing so? The answers may surprise you and help reset your mindsets for gaining success mastery. Arlene and Sean have a heartfelt, honest discussion about facing obstacles, including suicide, and finding happiness despite a negative past. Talk about success as a mental health issue, too.
“If you never try anything hard, you’ll never know what you’re good at. If you stop at failure, you will never be successful.” -Sean Douglas
