The rich must be reading all those books about the power of positive thinking. According to a new study, the majority of wealthy people reckon viewing failure positively is essential for economic growth.
Three-quarters of the 2,000 respondents for a Barclays Wealth study said embracing failure was important for an economy to grow. Interestingly, an average 83% of respondents in the Middle East and Asia believed in accepting failure and moving on. But the figures dropped to around 70% in the US, the UK and Europe.
