As humans, we fail. A lot. We often let our failures determine our views on future success, and it can imprison and prevent us from discovering our true potential. The reality of it is, success is nothing but preparation and determination to be one step ahead of failure, as the margin between the two is very slim. The significance lies in understanding that purpose and passion for what you do will always outweigh failure, but only if you choose to see it that way.
In our professional lives, we are inevitably surrounded by failures day in and day out. We lose a valuable client due to a personal mistake, or let a prized contract slip through our grasp. On this #motivationmonday, keep your chin up, and realize that you are going to fail from time to time. Don’t let these mistakes define your limitations. Instead, use them as a platform to learn and recognize how to best approach the same situation in the future. After all, we learn far more from our failure than we could hope to learn from our success.
