How Do You Really Feel About Failure?

"Failure is success in progress." - Albert Einstein

Failure can be so instructional. When was the last time you failed at something? What did you learn from the experience? If it taught you to doubt yourself, how is that serving you now? What if the failure itself was a gift to help you gain clarity and challenge your thinking so the next attempt works out well for you?

Fear of failure sometimes holds us back from trying at all. If you give it your all and fail vs. not trying in the first place, the fear is that you'll be right, that you weren't good enough after all. What if "giving it your all" and letting go of the outcome just increases your learning opportunity? How much better prepared would that leave you for your next challenge? What if there really are no mistakes, just opportunities?
