It’s sometimes easy to fixate on the failure thereby overlooking the lesson there was in failing, getting up and trying again. Focus on what you learned – not on the failed act itself.
I have been known to say something like this when things are looking dark and bleak – stay in the sun. Don’t let darkness overtake you – stay in the light – live in the sun. Choose it – and do it.
And to add onto this one – we must also lose our need to always be right. We learn from wrong – we find adventure in wrong – we find opportunity in wrong – and we sometimes find the best things just because we do something wrong. Don’t fear it. Don’t need to be right. Just be what it is – and see where it leads you.
