My Failure Resume

About the eBook


On my 40th birthday in 2020, I decided to share a list of my failures – I call it the Failure Resume.

When I look back at these failures, I feel no regret, no shame and no embarrassment. Instead, there is a deep sense of gratitude that I was fortunate enough to realize them as failures and learn from them. And this reflection set me up for bigger things.

Reviews for “My Failure Resume”

Respect Man…from the bottom of my heart, You are one of few who speaks from his/her heart in public. I have attended your sessions and loved every part of that.

Wow! What a thread, Ankur. It does take a lot of Courage and Vulnerability to Open up and admit one’s failures before the world.

This is one of the most uplifting things I have read today. 5 years back you gave a session at SOIL and I still remember the positivity you brought to those sessions. I never could have known there we so many failures behind it. Thanks for sharing.

I have nothing to say apart from THANK YOU for writing this, from the bottom of my heart :)
