Simon Cowell And Paula Abdul on X-Factor, Love At First Sight!

(Part 6) Reinvent Your Game, Future-Proof Your Dreams: (Old-School Flava)
How Celebs & Pros Go from Played-out to Poppin’ Again!

 Simon Cowell on Idol, those were the days. It seems like yesterday. Paula Abdul and Cowell giving feedback to contestants. That duo left. But is being revived on the new X-Factor. This is Cowell’s baby! Not Abdul, but the show. Cowell’s like the comeback kid because he’s not afraid of failure.

His rise to stardom says something about having the X-factor. Cowell had seen success before and lost it all. His reinvention involved taking time to re-group. After going back home to live with his parents he found a way to reload. His career re-launch helped position him as a judge on Britain’s Pop Idol.

This is exactly what he’s doing now with the X-Factor. After leaving Pop Idol to join American Idol, Cowell became a “love-or-hate-him” judge. He left the show after nine seasons because he started to feel bored. Cowell is looking to do it again as he regroups, reloads and re-launches himself on the X-Factor.

Cowell might agree that reinventing your game is about showcasing your gifts and talents. Not everybody can sing or dance, but everybody can turn their gifts into glory. Reinventing your game is also about showing some grit. Cowell’s smile reveals someone who balances “grit and burn” with “win and earn.”

Any successful person will tell you that overcoming the fear of failure helps to future-proof your dreams. In Cowell’s own words, “it’s like getting ready to ride the Roller Coaster. You suddenly become excited. For a brief moment you’re kind of scared. But in the long run you end up having a good time.”
