There is a common misconception in the world today that successful individuals are geniuses
who make all the correct decisions and succeed at everything they do. Wayne Root warns that
this misconception is damaging to our psyches, our attitudes, and our future progress in life,
and it's a theory that couldn't be further from the truth! The truth is that the road to the
top is often paved with landmines.
In fact, many of our culture's most successful people experienced many failures along the way.
So if you've experienced some failures, you are in the illustrious company of Abraham Lincoln,
Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Robert Dole, Frank Sinatra, Oprah Winfrey, George Burns, Donald Trump,
Johnny Carson, and Dr. Norman Vincent Peale - just to name a few.
Author Wayne Allyn Root has had so many failures in his life that he calls himself "The World's
Most Successful Failure". Along the way, he has been rejected from law school, failed at real
estate, lost an election, became an entertainment agent and was fired six months later, lost
several jobs, and failed at numerous businesses in several different industries. Today,
however, he is a 34-year-old millionaire living on a sprawling, walled estate overlooking
the Pacific Ocean in Malibu.
Root attributes his current success to all the lessons he learned from his numerous failures.
Failure made him tough. Failure made him wise. Failure made him smarter, stronger, more creative,
more tenacious, more compassionate, more disciplined. Failure taught him what would work and
what wouldn't work.
In this book, Root shares his story of how he turned adversity into achievement and shows the
reader how they can, too.
