“There is no innovation & creativity without failure.”
– Brené Brown
I’ve noticed something new of late. Failing used to scare me – a lot. But somehow, that’s drifted away. I’m not sure exactly when it happened or how. Maybe it was going through some failings of my own and realizing that I’m still here, and I’m still contributing to this world.
Through failing, I’ve come to more clarity about my life’s direction. And I anticipate there will be more of that in my future. Failure does not equal stasis. Once you fail, you don’t dwell in that failure forevermore. I say bring on the failure. I’ll own it, take responsibility, and let the course of things keep going. Moving through it to the lessons on the other side is kind of awesome.
