So when you understand that you are free, you understand that the only key is fail and fail fast. Do new things create more experiences and through these experiences you learn, no matter if it's a success or a failure according to what people think. If you understand that no matter what you can learn and grow and it's a platform to succeed more, no matter what it's a success. But in a way be willing to fail, be willing to lose, be willing to do mistakes, to be un-perfect, imperfect. Because if you accept that now with me together, if you accept that, you can't imagine how successful you are. A lot of people wants to be successful in avoiding failures. Accept these things, success. Accept failures and accept success also, so be willing to fail.
Maybe you can fail in the way you speak with people, just do mistakes no matter if you do faults or mistakes. I'm willing to speak English with you no matter what. I don't want to wait to have perfect English, and a lot of people told me, “Oh you have to be perfect.” And you can see on YouTube some comments, they say, “I don't understand why you speak English, you have to continue in French it's better.” They don't understand the key of success. I am here to improve myself. I'm here to form an evolution. So, if I improve myself every day, I'm sure to be proud of myself at the end of the day and at the end of my life. So it was surprising for me to see some comments, they say, “I don't understand why you continue, you do so many mistakes in English.” I did 400 videos in English and it's only the beginning. I am dedicated to improve myself and continue.
The secret key of success :
Sometimes I'm willing to tell a jokes and it's not funny for everyone. I'm walking to be ridiculous. Why? Because no matter what I am improving myself. If you focus on improvement, if you focus on the fact that you improve yourself really, I think at the end you are happy, grateful, you are successful, no matter what. Because if you build your life according to what people think, it's “I don't want this life.” I want to be free. I want to be free to wake up and say, “Why not do that?” And I'm doing that, no matter all the mistakes, no matter all the failures. At the end I am proud of me, at the end I am proud of myself about what I'm willing to do.
I started to do a comedy show the last show and you can't imagine how many people told me, “Hey David, you can't learn to do a comedy show in one year like that and fill a room of 1,400 people.” You can't imagine how many people told me it's impossible. I don't want to believe in the world impossible. I don't understand it. Why? What does it means? I don't understand the word impossible. Why? Because I don't do things to be successful, I do things to improve. And when you do things to improve you can't have, it's impossible. It's impossible to not improve yourself, because at the end maybe it can be a failure in a matter of money, it can be a failure of matter of the media, the press, but I will be able to learn. I will be able to tell the story. I will be able to inspire some people. So it's a success. Be willing to fail. Be willing to do new things and fail.
So the question for me now is, “What do you want to do?” You can see all these books and all these books are written by people who gave themselves the permission to fail. And for me it's the key, and be willing to fail. According to you, in which area are you willing to fail now? Just take it as, we are together and you are maybe alone in your computer or with a friend or your family. So take the time to tell me in which area are you willing to fail from now. It's a decision. Take this decision and fail, go fail fast.
The secret key of success :
If you are selling products, go call people and fail, the mistakes. Some people told me, “How do you do to speak like that in French and you are an amazing speaker; you are only 26 years old,” and I am amazed by that. I did more than 100 conference the first year. I was doing one or two events conference each day, five days a week. I was willing to fail. Some days I had no people in my room and it cost me money to invest in rooms and also advertisement, to be able to speak. And some days I had zero persons, some days one, two persons and it took me three months to earn a little bit of money, three months. And it took me one year, one year of hard work to get back my money. And at the end I was at zero, because I get back only the money I invested. But because I was investing more, it took me two years to start to earn money and two years to start to pay myself. It was me. I was paying the company to survive and to continue and keep going. And why? I was willing to fail. I prefer to fail and be proud of myself, than I don't want to be like a lot of people at the end they say, “I should do that,” or, “I'm so angry about me.” I don't want to be like that. I don't want to be depressed because I didn't achieve my dreams.
And it's not about achieving your dreams; it's about taking action in the direction of your dreams. It's about opening your heart to yourself and love yourself so much, that no matter what people think you are proud of yourself. Okay, maybe she's not perfect. Okay, I can improve myself. But I am helping people. And I tell myself each time I'm doing a video, “If I help at least one person it's great and I am proud of myself.” I am proud of myself just taking the stick and do this video with you each morning. It's a commitment. I can do other things. In one hour I can earn a lot of money, if I do a speech or French things. But I don't live for money. I love money, but I don't live for money. I live for improvement. I live for evolution. Each seconds of my life I have the opportunity to draw my legend. I have the opportunity to create a story I want to be able to tell in the future. Each seconds of my life it's my legend and you have the opportunity to create your legend, to right your legend down.
Now in doing what you want to do, no matter what. No matter what people think, because you love yourself so much? And it's a great way to honor your masters, your parents. Because you are in this world, in this earth to be happy and to share happiness and be a source of inspiration. And we're not inspired by people who are waiting for the dreams. We are inspired by people who have the courage, the will to do it no matter what. You have that. If you watch my videos, its show you of that. Because you can't love something in me, inside me that you don't have. What you love inside me you have it, you just have to unleash it maybe a little bit more. But you have it, you are awesome, you are great and we are great. We are filled by amazing people in this world, but a lot of people are amazing, but they don't take the decision to be amazing. I took the decision to be amazing and that's why I am so proud of myself. I became confident. I earned money. I am inspiring millions of people. Why? Because I took this decision to be able to fail.
The secret key of success :
If you understand French, go and write down [foreign language 00:10:15] and you will watch one of my first videos. It's not one of my first videos, but it's one of my first videos. And I struggle sometimes to watch it, because it's . . . You will see, you will watch this video. But it was one of my first. I had the willingness, the courage to do it and now I have the courage to let it online. I am not doing that for me, I am doing that for you because if you see my current videos you can say, “Oh he's too high, he's too confident, he's doing too many things.” But I let this video online and it needs courage for me, because to inspire you to say, “If he can do it, I can do it.” I am here to represent possibilities. I'm here to tell you that everything is possible if it's something very important for you. I'm here to be the changer you want to see in your life, and I'm doing everything I can to inspire you.
Just the fact I am taking the time to do videos in English, I know that it's helping people to say, “If he can do it, I can do that. I can do that. I can do that.” When I did my comedy show, I think I have the handful of persons who told me not I was funny, but, “Thank you very much. You inspired me to achieve my dreams,” and it was my goal, I want to inspire you to achieve your dreams.
So take a decision to be willing to fail no matter what people think. At the end what would happen? Maybe they will criticize you and then nothing. Because at the end they will forget what you did, but you will not forget what you did. So if you take action, if you achieve your dreams, at the end of your life you will be proud of yourself. I am so proud of myself, because I took the decision to achieve the life I want and I did it. Nobody can do that for me. I can't do that for you. I can only tell you my own story and it's for you only to do that. I do everything. I am using my creativity to inspire more and more people, but I am doing that for you.
