We spend much of our life trying to avoid failure, or at least giving other the perception that we don’t fail. When we do fail – especially publicly – the result is often a tragic down spiral. As a human race, I believe we handle failure more poorly than we have in the past. Be it that we live more public lives due to social media, shelter our kids a bit more, or today’s pressures to succeed are just greater, we are not coping with disappointments as well as our predecessors did. This trend must change.
Change your mindset. Failure means you are taking risks to be more and should be applauded. Failure is an opportunity to learn something about yourself that you otherwise would not know. Failure is an opportunity to learn how to deal with failure. Failure is ultimately success.
Take risks. Fail. Learn from the fail. Repeat.
