This can be tough to hear, but our ability to be successful correlates with our tolerance of failure.
If you ‘can’t’ fail, you can’t succeed.
Getting things wrong, making mistakes, learning and trying again- THAT is how we progress at everything we learn. There is no route to success that bypasses failure along the way.
The good news is, you’ve failed plenty and it hasn’t killed you yet. In fact, some of those failures have gotten you this far, so perhaps it’s time to change how you view failure?
Perhaps it may be time to allow for the idea that failure is a – the – path to growth?
Maybe you’re never going to want to be its friend, but maybe it might be time to consider that it’s not your enemy?
What do you think?
And if you have started to use failure as a teacher and embrace it as part of the journey, what has that changed for you? How has it helped you, do you think?
