Sara Blakely joined The Forbes Rich List thanks to founding Spanx. Here is a lesson learned from Sara’s journey from fax machine saleswoman to entrepreneurial superstar.

Fail Big.

Sara’s beloved father followed Wayne Dyer’s guidance in teaching his children the power of failing big. Each day, her father would ask, “So, what did you fail at today.” And if there were no failures, Dad would be disappointed.

Focusing on failing big allowed Sara to understand that failure is not an outcome, but involves a lack of trying, not stretching yourself far enough out of your comfort zone and attempting to be more than you were the day before. Failing big was a good thing.
