Failure Experts Claim Rejected American Idol Contestants are More Successful than Most Americans

Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz are owners of Courage Crafters, Inc. and "failure experts" that teach individuals and organizations how to be more successful by increasing their failure rate. And that, says the pair, is why even rejected Idol contestants are a step ahead of most Americans. "At least they're out there giving it a shot, talent or not, while most people are simply watching from the sidelines."

Vancouver, WA (PRWeb) January 30, 2007 -- This bold statement comes from authors Richard Fenton & Andrea Waltz of Courage Crafters, Inc., who travel the country delivering workshops that teach individuals and organizations how to be more successful by increasing their failure rate. And that, says the pair, is why even rejected Idol contestants are a step ahead of most Americans. "At least they're out there giving it a shot, talent or not, while most people are lying on their sofas simply watching from the sidelines."

But what about the fact that these people can't sing or dance? "Talent," says Fenton, "is highly overrated. In most cases it's the willingness to face rejection and keep going that determines the level of success you'll achieve." And Waltz agrees. "Increasing your failure rate is the single greatest success strategy a person can employ. In short, if you can fail, you can succeed!"

Idol contestant Thomas Daniels of Seattle is the perfect example of their premise. Daniels, auditioning for the third time after sleeping behind a row of dumpsters the night before, was finally sent through to the next round. "What if Thomas had quit after getting the first or second no?" Fenton is quick to ask. "He sure wouldn't be on his way to Hollywood." The pair point to the interchange between the judges during Daniels' audition. When asked by Randy why he was back for a third time, Daniels said that maybe the third time would be a charm. When Randy responded, "Or three times and you're out," Paula chided him, saying: "Randy, if we'd quit after our third NO, we wouldn't be sitting here!"

Fenton & Waltz say Paula has got it right, whether it's competing on a variety show, selling a product or starting a business. "What you see on American Idol is representative of what it takes to succeed in any area of life," says Waltz. "Failure is simply a stepping stone on the path to success."

The core of Fenton & Waltz's failure philosophy is found in their book, "Go for No! The Ultimate Strategy for Failing Your Way to Success!" available through their website http://www.GoForNo.com. To Interview Richard Fenton & Andrea Waltz (The Courage Crafters) call 800-290-5028.
