Fail Often

If failure is not an option, then, most of the time, neither is success. — Seth Godin

When was the last time you failed at something? How did that make you feel? Were you sad, disappointed, frustrated, or angry? What if I told you there is a better way to look at failure? What if I told you that we should all fail more often?

Failure can be very positive and transformative. If you decide to learn from it, it can help you grow by clearly outlining your weaknesses and mistakes. The experience you get from it will make your another attempt easier. (And if you’ve failed at something that matters, you should almost certainly try again.)

The biggest growth often comes from failure. So go ahead, try something you might fail at; you’ll learn a lot, you’ll grow stronger and it just might bring you one step closer to your dreams.
