The video going viral led him to think about what others would do if they weren't afraid of hearing “no” or of being met with failure.  Ryan realized that many people never pursue their hopes and dreams because they pre-calculate their own failure. They quit before they ever even try. So, he asked himself: What would he want to do if he knew he could not fail?

Jeff Bulington grew up on the outskirts of Toledo, Ohio and in rural Monon, Indiana. He learned to move the chess pieces from his first grade teacher in 1972, but was introduced to tournament chess by a local farmer after moving to Indiana as a junior high student. He founded his school's first chess club. Fast forward a few decades and he’s transforming the lives of the students who society has written off. Who am I talking about? The students of Franklin County, MS.  60 Minutes described Franklin County as “the buckle of the Bible belt.  Seven thousand people live here and no one’s in a hurry. There are only two stop lights in the entire county and one elementary school.”  One local described Franklin County like this… “All the statistics, everything you look at, Mississippi is the poorest. It’s the dumbest. It’s the fattest. We know that the rest of the nation has that conception of us.”  Why did Jeff Bulington show up here to teach this community a game that most had never played and presumably wouldn't have any interest in?  And how did he succeed in changing how young people on the fringes of society think about themselves?  Find out.

He saw opportunity where others saw obstacles. He saw an opportunity to change how banking was done for the benefit of the industry, the employees, and the community.  So, he co-founded Movement Mortgage. He’s not just talked the talk, he’s walked the walk. The Movement Foundation has invested more than $25 million toward community improvement and meeting the needs of the underserved around the world.  From a bone-crunching  first play in the NFL to a leader in the banking industry, Casey shares his story and his secrets to success in this episode of Success Through Failure.  If you don’t have time to listen to the entire episode or if you hear something that you like but don’t have time to write it down, be sure to grab your free copy of the Action Plan from this episode—as well as get access to action plans from EVERY episode—at http://www.JimHarshawJr.com/Action.
