The experience of failure sucks - often resulting in depression, self-loathing and identity crisis. But if you follow the rules of failure—seeing beyond the mess and picking through the good stuff left in life's shit heap of life's catastrophes — you can bounce forward from failure into success. Embrace the F-word and let hard times make you stronger. Because after it sucks, FAILURE RULES! SOME OF THE VITAL TOPICS COVERED IN THIS ONE…What made you choose the five failures that you included in this book? How did your role as record producer for punk rock enter into your journey from failure to success?How difficult was it for you to come to the decision to pursue a job you love rather than one that made sense financially? What is your biggest piece of advice for people whose fear is holding them back from taking the leap towards their passion? How important is it for entrepreneurs to have back up plans whenever they embark on their pursuits? How long did it take you to shift your mindset and view failures in the way you do now? What role does humor play during the low moments of experiencing failure?What does being authentic, even in the face of failure, mean to you? Can you think of a time where you really leaned into your failure instead of letting the negativity of it consume you?About Dr. John's Guest:Andrew Thorp King is an executive fintech banker, spy novelist, speaker, punk rocker, podcaster, ex-bodybuilder, cigar lover, and serial entrepreneur. He founded two independent record labels—Thorp Records and Sailor's Grave Records—and has invested in many spaces, including online lending, fitness, lead generation, and independent music. He is the author of Failure Rules! The 5 Rules of Failure for Entrepreneurs, Creatives and Authentics. Andrew Thorp King is also a serial failure. He has crashed and burned through bankruptcy, divorce, mortgage default, public assistance, and multiple business failures. But, like a jack-in-the-box after a punch, he pops back up every time, rebuilding his life—informed by failure—with a big smile on his face. Failure can ruin lives and families. There's no denying it. It can destroy your health and obliterate your self-esteem. But it also holds a lot of value on the road to success. FAILURE RULES! walks you through five essential rules to help you pull value from any failure—as proven by Andrew Thorp King's personal stories of dramatic, cascading failures in business, relationships, art, and life. Journey through key failure lessons from a wildly diverse set of successful entrepreneurs, creatives, and authentics, including Winston Churchill, Sara Blakely, Henry Rollins, Andrew Yang, Toby Keith, Ryan Holiday, David Goggins, Glenn Beck, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Billie Jean King, Srinivas Rao, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, J.K.

Full show notes at www.LearningLeader.com Twitter/IG: @RyanHawk12  https://twitter.com/RyanHawk12 My Guest: Buzz Williams is the head Men's Basketball Coach at Texas A&M University. He's coached his teams to eight NCAA Tournament appearances in 13 years as a head coach. In 2020, Buzz was named the SEC "Coach of the Year." His teams have won 20 or more games in five of the last seven seasons. Buzz's teams have four Sweet Sixteen appearances. Buzz is known as a coach who helps his players on and off the court. He teaches regular life development sessions to his players called "Get Better 101." Notes: Buzz has nine daily disciplines. “Your decisions reveal your priority.” Train body at 5:30, get steps at 7:30, write 2 thank you notes per day, write children a note on their favorite color note card every day, read a book a week, weekly date night with his wife, and on non-gamedays is 7 meaningful texts.  “You can be whatever you earn the right to be.” Team Bus 1 - The core group of people that make up the team. Those that sit on the bench and play in the games. In order to climb the ladder, you must go one step at a time. You can't skip steps. There are no hacks, no shortcuts. Being able to delay gratification is a superpower and creates the opportunity to make a big impact. It's the ability to show up each day and take one step at a time. “It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great.”  “History rarely remembers the critics. It remembers the contributors. So contribute!” “Energized leaders can evoke energy from within others. But when the leader lets up a little, followers tend to let up a lot.” “The reward for passing the test is earning the next test.” “Being a boss is a job. Being a leader is something you earn.” “Goliath is not there to kill you, he is there to introduce you.” “Pressure is a privilege.” (Billie Jean King book title) "Basketball is not the source, it is the vehicle.” “While we are leading, our rate of learning must be at least as fast as the rate of change.” “Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything are two things that will always define you.” "You grow up thinking winning is the scoreboard at the end.  But you learn there is so much that goes into the business of winning. Winning is the details-the discipline. The business of winning happens every second, and this business doesn't turn the lights off." “There's a ceiling to talent. There's no ceiling to someone's hunger & to someone's drive to be the best. How hard a team works, how hard they play, how together they are- there's no ceiling to that.” Many times in life what's invisible is what's important. “True love does not have an agenda.” Team Rules: Always tell the truth, no matter what Always be on time... 6 = early Be a great teammate... It compounds Never do anything to embarrass you/your family/your team/your school If anything is potentially a problem, please call Buzz What Buzz looks for when recruiting a player: Character IQ & EQ Work ethic - Do they want to work? Consumed with process Insatiable drive to get better A great teammate Life/Career advice: Never be without pen and paper. Take notes. Read more than you think you need to. Write down everything, about anything, all the time. Build trustful relationships. Seek to give to others and add value to their lives. Never turn down an opportunity to learn or work.

100. Dolly Chugh - Looking Back to Move Forward “There's a relationship between psychology and history, how the mind works and how it perceives things that have happened in the past.” — Dolly Chugh “Nostalgia is a specific form of history. It's a sentimental personal form of history…that gives us a sense of belonging and that feels good, there's nothing wrong with that…The challenge, however, when we think about a country that has massive racial disparities on almost every meaningful outcome, health, economic, education, housing, …the problem is, if our nostalgic view of the past limits our ability to understand where those disparities are coming from, it will limit our ability to address them today and fix them tomorrow.”  — Dolly Chugh Guest Bio: Dolly Chugh (she/her, hear my name) is a social psychologist and management professor at the New York University Stern School of Business where she teaches MBA courses in leadership and management. Dolly is well-known for her teaching and facilitation skills. She was one of six professors chosen from thousands at New York University to receive the Distinguished Teaching Award in 2020 and one of five to receive the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Faculty Award in 2013. Dolly's research focuses on “bounded ethicality,” which she describes as the “psychology of good people.” Her work has been published in the leading psychology, economics, and management journals, and cited by many books and authors. She has been named an SPSP Fellow, received the Academy of Management Best Paper award, been named one of the top 100 Most Influential People in Business Ethics by Ethisphere Magazine, and received many other research honors. Her first book, The Person You Mean to Be: How Good People Fight Bias (HarperCollins, 2018), has received rave praise from Adam Grant, Angela Duckworth, Liz Wiseman, Billie Jean King, and many others. It has been covered on The TODAY Show, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Atlantic, the 10% Happier Podcast, the goop Podcast, NPR, and other media outlets.   Dolly's TED Talk was named one of the 25 Most Popular TED Talks of 2018 and currently has almost 5 million views. Recently, she launched the popular newsletter Dear Good People, a free monthly email offering bite-sized, evidence-based, zeitgeisty tips on how to be the inclusive person you mean to be. Her next book, A More Just Future: Psychological Tools for Reckoning with our Past and Driving Social Change, will be released by Simon & Schuster in October 2022. Prior to becoming an academic, Dolly worked at Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, Sibson and Company, Scholastic, and Time Inc. Dolly attended Cornell University where she majored in psychology and economics for her undergraduate degree and Harvard University for her MBA and PhD. R.O.G. Takeaway Tips: Audit what influences you:  Take whatever content you like to consume (podcast, social media, books, video games) and look at what voices are represented.  Audit the last five. What are the patterns?  In the next five, make it a different pattern. Values Affirmation:  Affirm your values. What are the values you hold dear? What do you care about?  Reflect on those values. Allow them to anchor you. Read history and pay attention to how things are framed through a lens of, “How has the author of this story shaped it? What else is/ may be missing?”  Stick with it.  Do the work.

Sue Barker is a television presenter and former professional tennis player. She presented the BBC's Wimbledon coverage for nearly three decades, before stepping down this year, when she received a standing ovation. Sue was born in Devon in 1956, and was educated at the Marist Convent School where she had a reputation for being naughty – until her PE teacher, Mrs Chadwick, diverted her energy into tennis. Aged 11 she was selected for training by the local tennis coach Arthur Roberts, who had already guided players to Grand Slam titles. Sue started playing – and winning – junior tournaments. She turned professional at 17, and moved to the US, joining a new women's tour set up by Billie Jean King. During her career, she reached the ranking of World No. 3, playing and defeating her contemporaries, including Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Evonne Goolagong and Virginia Wade. Her biggest win came at the French Open in 1976 where, aged 20, she took her first – and only – Grand Slam title. Her biggest disappointment came at Wimbledon the following year, when she lost in the semi-final, despite being the clear favourite. Plagued by injuries, she retired from tennis in 1985. She began commentating on Australia's Channel 7, before moving to BskyB in the UK, and then joining the BBC in 1993. She has hosted Wimbledon, Grandstand, the Summer and Winter Olympics, the Commonwealth Games, BBC Sports Personality of the Year, and A Question of Sport. When she announced her retirement from TV, her idol Billie Jean King called her the GOAT, the ‘greatest of all time'.

  On Tuesday's show: Hurricane Fiona has brought destructive flooding to Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Space City Weather meteorologist Matt Lanza tells us more about the storm and explains why it's been a relatively quiet -- and hot -- hurricane season for us so far. And a federal court ruling is allowing a new Texas social media law to take effect. The law prevents social media companies from blocking posts on the basis of their political views. News 88.7's Andrew Schneider joins us to explain the law, the ruling, and the potential challenge before the U.S. Supreme Court that's likely to come. Also this hour: This is Banned Books Week, and, for the last year and a half, school boards across the country -- and especially in Texas -- have been bombarded with challenges to library books. High on the list are books that address racial history and LGBTQ topics. We revisit a conversation about whether this current period of politically charged debate over individual books is something different from the past. And we hear the perspective of a librarian. Then, 49 years ago today, the Battle of the Sexes tennis match took place at the Astrodome where Billie Jean King soundly defeated Bobby Riggs in three straight sets. It was a huge moment for women's equality, women in sport, and for tennis in general. Retired sports reporter Dan Lovett was in attendance that day and shares his memories of the match.  Plus Houston tennis great Zina Garrison reflects on her career. And poet Julia Guez talks about her new collection, The Certain Body, much of which was inspired by her experience with COVID during the worst of the pandemic in New York City.

Today's question is a big one for many of us this year, as we emerge from let's call it an ‘intense' period of time – and into a new work and life landscape that's being written as we live it.So here's today's question – how do you lead from the edge?I love this question because it has so many layers to it.How do you lead from the edge of new terrain, where the opportunities are huge but the ‘how' just feels messier than ever?How do you lead in a new world of work, where the rules around how we work, where we work, whether we work at all – have irreversibly changed.And, the conversation that I'm hearing a lot behind closed doors at the moment – how do you lead from your own edge? When your tank feels empty and there's no space to exhale.Today's Guest Holly Ransom is one of Australia's 100 Most Influential Women according to the Australian Financial Review. She has delivered a Peace Charter to the Dalai Lama, was Sir Richard Branson's nominee for Wired Magazine's ‘Future Game Changers to watch' and was awarded the US Embassy's Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Leadership Excellence. Having interviewed the likes of Barack Obama, Malcolm Gladwell, Richard Branson, Billie Jean-King, Condoleezza Rice, Nobel Prize Winner Muhammad Yunus and the world's first humanoid robot Sophia (true fact) - Holly fights complexity with curiosity and fear with fact. Her latest best-selling book The Leading Edge, helps people harness their own potential to lead by asking better questions, thinking beyond traditional answers and building collective momentum for change. It is – in short – A MUST READ for any leader.I first came across Holly's work a few years ago, since then I have watched with growing admiration as her career and influence exploded.It was while talking to a friend that she ended the conversation with: ‘Have you ever met Holly Ransom?' to which I replied: ‘No, but I can tell you she will be the next Prime Minister of Australia'. Having both agreed on that prediction, we were introduced and the rest as they say is history.

Including why most books on leadership still fail the ‘implementation challenge'.How as leaders it is our ‘relationship to stress that's the problem, not stress itself'. This one really hit me. That stress itself is agnostic – the question being more whether the stress we're experiencing is healthy (made up of stretch and challenge) or toxic (made up of fear and a sense of powerlessness).The concept of managing energy not time – and why this is a flip that every iconic leader (and let's face it parent) has to learn how to make.

Revisiting a conversation with BoF's Imran Amed from 2019, the 23 grand slam winning tennis champion, who announced her retirement this week, talks about how the mental toughness she has built on the court has prepared her for life as an entrepreneur.     Background:      This week, tennis superstar Serena Williams announced her imminent retirement as part of a cover story with American Vogue. Known in fashion circles for her on-court style, which included catsuits and denim skirts and a collaboration with late designer Virgil Abloh's Off-White, Williams will have more time to focus on as her burgeoning business empire, including her fashion label S by Serena and a venture fund, Serena Ventures.    This week on The BoF Podcast, we revisit Williams' 2019 conversation with BoF founder and editor-in-chief Imran Amed about how the mental toughness she has built on the court has prepared her for life as an entrepreneur.    “It's really important for things not to come super easy for you, and to kind of accept that challenge, embrace it and then just roll with it,” said Williams.     Key Insights:     Rather than work with a partner, licence her name or sign another lucrative endorsement, Williams felt it was important to invest time, money and effort in herself and chase her own vision with S by Serena, a direct-to-consumer brand she has funded independently.  Serena Ventures just raised $111 million and has invested in over 60 companies including personal care brand Lola, supply chain management firm Calico and razor-maker Billie.  The fund was originally founded in 2014 when Williams noticed people of colour and women were not getting the investments they needed.  Balancing all her pursuits and personal life can be tough. But, when she feels pinched, William is reminded of one of her favourite quotes from Billie Jean King: “pressure is a privilege.”      Additional Resources:    Serena Williams: The Champion's Mindset  Serena Williams, Style Icon, Retiring From Tennis How Athletes Went From Selling Merch to Building Fashion Brands

June 23, 1972. President Richard Nixon's men broke into the Watergate complex just six days earlier. He's attempting some damage control, but in between meetings with his staff, Nixon signs a new bill into law – the Educational Amendments of 1972. He isn't aware of it at the time, but Title IX of this law will change women's sports forever. The bill's passage comes after years of campaigning, and the most prominent face of this movement is one of the great athletes of her era: Billie Jean King. Today, Billie Jean King sits down with Sports History This Week to unpack her role in this monumental legislation. How did she use her platform to fight for gender equality in athletics? And after the passage of Title IX, how did she literally battle for women everywhere? Special thanks to our guests: Billie Jean King, a champion of tennis and of equality, and Susan Ware, historian and author of Game, Set, Match: Billie Jean King and the Revolution in Women's Sports.

When Title IX became law 50 years ago, just 37 words of legislation established gender equity in education and athletics. ESPN Films' new documentary series “37 Words” explores how that fight was won, and the impact it had across sports and society. In the first of four episodes with ESPN's head of W Studios Allison Glock, documentary director Dawn Porter breaks down how sports converged with the women's equality movement in the 60s and 70s. We focus on two icons: Gloria Steinem, the feminist author and activist, and former World No. 1 tennis champ and women's advocate Billie Jean King. Learn more about your ad choices.
