The Value of Failing

I believe we don’t understand the “value of failing.”  There is value in success, but there is equal (and often greater) value in failing.  The value in failing is that it removes from us our false beliefs regarding success.  But we don’t always see the successes that brought us where we are.

Have you ever been to a prize drawing and the person next to you says, “I don’t know why I bothered being here – I never win anything!”? Maybe you muttered these words yourself at some point.

The truth is we have been advancing towards winning our whole lives.  Our we wouldn’t be here in the first place.  We simply chose not to notice the progressive victories.

When you and I fall, we need to look with open eyes, minds and hearts to see what caused it.  And what we can learn from it.
