“Help to take failure, not as a measure of their worth, but as a chance for a new start.” — Book of Common Prayer
Everyone fails, makes mistakes, and has accidents. Everyone. Personally I have lost money, invested poorly, been fired from jobs, had failed businesses, ruined relationships, received parking tickets and hurt those I love. Far from perfect? You bet! But every one of my successes was built on the experience of my failures. In fact, I’ve learned more from failing than anything else in life. In a way, failure has been my biggest cheerleader. Today, when I fail, I’ll simply say “Thanks for showing me how to do better.” ILML!
