Cox had his first share of failure in 8th grade when he invested money in an Instagram account and went on trying to monetize it. The account was later removed by Instagram and this was the first step towards learning from failure. Brendon then discusses that this stage of failure is usually what most people are scared of. This fear often pushes them from trying which, thus getting over it is important in order to be able to act, learn and grow. 

Part 3 talks about staying relevant to the current developments in the business world. While adaptation can be tough sometimes, it definitely becomes necessary for survival. Cox, himself went through the process of learning graphic designing for managing his social media business profiles.
