Failing forward is your ability to overcome stumbling blocks, and get better despite them. The difference between successful and non-successful people is their perception of failure and how they respond to it.
Failure in the Webster dictionary is described as:
- “A lack of success” To me, that has a negative connotation to it. It seems so definitive, and I get a feeling of hopelessness after reading that.
- “Falling short” Now that’s something that I could wrap my mind around. Falling short has a much better connotation to it. It evokes hope. It leads me to believe that if I make a few changes, my desired outcome could be achieved.
That’s why your perception, and response to failure is so important!
I’ve experienced setbacks throughout my career, and I’m sure that I will again in the future.
Whatever obstacle you’re facing today, I want you to understand that you a choice. A choice of how it all plays out. I want you to choose to fail forward! The late and great Albert Einstein said, “You never fail until you stop trying.”
