Too many people create barriers for themselves because they see failure as something to be feared rather than an important – and sometimes essential – building block for success. People who embrace failure have greater knowledge, deeper experience and clearer vision of what success looks like. The education failure has given them is irreplaceable.
Give people the freedom to fail. Don’t hire failures who have given up on trying; hire tryers who haven’t given in to failing. These people will take your project, program or cause further with greater energy and clearer vision. Often, what you refer to as failure may be the very prerequisite to success that comes just before the breakthrough you dream about.
