“Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” ~Henry Ford
While I can’t say that I live to fail, I have certainly lived to avoid failure in the past… The safe way, the no-risk path, the “wait till the right time” game. One day life would happen, but I had to be safe because failure was unacceptable. As a result, I was a failure for the first time in my very successful life.
After wasting a handful of years keeping myself sheltered from demise, I finally decided that I would rather go big and possibly fail than stay small and suffer.
A little thought for you as a new year- and all sorts of astrological wonderment perks in the galaxies- get well underway is this: If you have no way to fail in your life, you aren’t fully living. Even if your life isn’t about business or artistry, being a great parent, a great citizen of the world and a great friend or partner are very important jobs and, if you are really invested in them, you realize that failure is an option that you will work to avoid. If you can’t fail, you aren’t living.
The good news? If you are really invested in life, you actually can’t fail. Like Edison said, each thing that doesn’t work is just another way to learn what won’t work, so you can move on to what will work! Most competition shows on TV see their runner-ups become superstars before their winners. In Hollywood, there’s more than one person who has “failed their way to the top.” I can go on and on, but you get the point. You’ve heard it before. I’m just reminding you. So, don’t sweat it, just go for it!
