Should Everyone Get Fired At Least Once to Be Successful?
Should everyone get fired at least once in life to achieve success?
Well, Vogue editor Anna Wintour thinks so. The most powerful woman in fashion revealed in an interview that she was fired in 1975 as a junior fashion editor for Harper’s Bazaar. She credits that experience for the huge success she has today in the fashion industry.
“Everyone should get sacked at least once," Wintour said. "It forces you to look at yourself . . . It is important to have setbacks, because that is the reality of life. Perfection doesn’t exist.”
Tucker Carlson weighed in on "Outnumbered" today, stating that "she's not known for her wisdom, but that's the wisest possible advice."
"I've been fired a couple of times, once in the New York Times," he shared. "It's humiliating and some humiliation is good for you. It puts your life in perspective. It makes you a much better person. I think it was one of the most powerfully, positive things that ever happened to me was getting fired."
Carlson added that he didn't have a back-up plan.
"I didn't have a back-up plan and I had to get one really fast," he said. "That's why I became a better person."
