What does it take to rebuild from failure? Social Impact Pioneer, Daniel Mangena shares his journey – boom to bust and boom again. Today Daniel is a global soul, five-time author, and entrepreneurial coach. Despite hitting rock bottom after losing everything, Daniel rebuilt his life in a unique way, offering valuable insights into recharging oneself, finding purpose, and achieving success through adversity.
Daniel’s story is one of resilience and transformation. He candidly reveals that he once contemplated suicide, feeling that his life had lost all meaning. A late diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome, coupled with amassing and subsequently losing a great deal of wealth, took its toll. However, he managed to turn his life around and is now dedicated to empowering others to do the same.
As an entrepreneurial advisor, Daniel firmly believes that success is within reach for everyone, regardless of their starting point. He encourages individuals to identify their passions and determine which ones they are willing to endure numerous failures and setbacks for. When asked about his advice for entrepreneurs who lack formal backing, such as smallholder farmers in emerging markets, Daniel shares that hard situations can be an advantage. He emphasizes the resourcefulness and problem-solving skills developed through navigating challenging circumstances. Failure, according to Daniel is not an experience but a choice. Rather than accepting circumstances as the end of the story, he encourages individuals to view failure as a test or a bump in the road. Drawing on his own experiences and the stories of successful businesspeople, he highlights how failure often precedes great success. This podcast conversation offers a unique perspective on personal growth, success, and social impact. Daniel’s insights provide a roadmap for individuals seeking to rebuild from failure, find their purpose, and make a positive difference in the world. By embracing resilience, pursuing passions, and empowering communities, each person has the potential to create a life of meaning and contribute to a brighter future.
