Failure is going to happen, no matter how hard we may work to prevent it or how great our plans may be, we will fail. The question isn’t so much whether or not you are going to fail, but rather how we respond to that failure.
Over the years as I have encountered perceived failures they often have been blessings in disguise. They have challenged me to look at things differently and make tough decisions about the priorities I had and what was important and what wasn’t.
My advice to you is give yourself permission to fail. Use your failures as learning opportunities and an opportunity to reset. To right size. To change course.
Go and fail big so that you might experience true success.
Permission to Fail
