Having the guts to fail is far more powerful than having the desire to succeed
Actor Dwayne Johnson, in a reflective post, spoke about “having the guts to fail” after the Black Adam bombed at the box office. The wrestler-turned-actor, 50, posted a video on his Instagram page of him retreating to the woods while sharing an empowering message about embracing failure. “Tapping in with you with a quick thought that’s anchored my success [and failures] over the years that may anchor and help you too on your journey. Having the guts to fail is far more powerful than having the desire to succeed. Having the desire to succeed is very attractive. It’s sexy,” he wrote in the caption.
“While having the guts to fail is extremely uncomfortable. And sometimes it’s scary, but guts over desire has served me all throughout my career. And when we put ourselves in positions to be uncomfortable, to have the guts to fail, we actually set ourselves up in a much more powerful way to WIN. It’s 2023. It’s our year. Guts over desire,” he added.
Joking about his age and comparing himself to a T-Rex, he continued, “Look, I’m a Tyrannosaurus Rex, I’m 58,000 years old, but I still have that. And that’s my lead foot. I’m just having the guts to fail, around every corner. And that leads my decisions. That allows me to take big swings. Get my ass kicked on some of them. Fail at some of them. But then, also succeed at some of them. So, I will always take guts over desire.”

While Johnson was being vague about the failure that he embraced in 2022, his post arrives after a news portal reported that he pissed a bunch of people at Warner Bros with his big demands, only to see Black Adam’s underwhelming performance at the box office.
