Failure gets a bad rap. We fight very hard each and every day to avoid failure as much a possible and often times, we only succeed in failing. Which then makes us desperate and we wind up making even worse choices.
It’s a simple fact of life – it’s not IF you are going to fail, it is WHEN. But failure does not always mean that you are finished. Failure can often be a sign that what you are currently doing just isn’t working, and you need to try something else to succeed. C.S. Lewis said, “Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.” Failure doesn’t mean we are wrong, but it is a sign that what we are doing isn’t correct at that moment. Failure gives us a chance to start over and try something new.
