Embracing Failure

Embracing Failure

I’m sure that sounds like a strange thing, to suggest we should embrace failure. Well, maybe. I wouldn’t say we should try to fail, but we certainly shouldn’t fear failure.

My own fear of failure early in life at times paralyzed me. Later, after moving away from home, I learned to just accept it as part of life, learn from it, and move on. It’s still hard at times to overcome that horrible fear of failure, however, every failure has helped me to grow as a person, and move forward.

When we look at those who inspire us, we generally only see their successes and not their failures. The truth is, everyone has failed at one point in their lives or another. What makes the difference is learning to get up again, learn from our mistakes, and try once more.

Don’t fear failure!
