Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss are a part of the Facebook story. It seems they may have hired Mark Zuckerberg to develop a social network only to have it stole from them. At least how their story goes and how the movie, “The Social Network” has depicted them.

They eventually settled for a onetime payment from Zuckerberg and have gone off to do new things. They could have cried in their beer, wallowed in self-pity but, instead have become the first bitcoin billionaires leveraging a small investment into billionaire status.

When you fail, there is an opportunity to learn a lesson from the failure and move ion to something new. I am certainly not going to tell you to avoid taking time to lick your wounds. I know I did that after I have to declare bankruptcy some thirty years ago.

I am going to tell you that you have learned a valuable lesson that you can apply to your future that guide you to future professional success.
