Why You Should Embrace the Power of Losing

It’s a quote that has been attributed to witty leaders like Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln, but in fact, nobody really knows who said this first: "Success is going from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” But more interesting than the quip's source is its implication: You have to take a lot of risks, and rack up a lot of losses, if you’re going to win in the long run. That’s a lesson that Rule Breaker Investing host and Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner has certainly taken to heart. In this segment from the podcast -- another in his “Great Quotes” series -- he talks about the stock picker at the company with the most big losers in his portfolio: himself. But wait a minute more for the numbers, and you’ll see confirmation that his “risky” strategy is far better than what looks like playing it safe. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: Join our Facebook community: Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter:
