“I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life.
And that is why I succeed.”
– Michael Jordan
While none of us wants to fail, we learn so very much from failing . . . about ourselves, about others, and about the way the world works. Nothing teaches you more, more important, or longer-lasting, lessons than does failure.
Don’t fear failing; it is a uniquely valuable experience. Instead, fear never failing, because without a doubt never failing means you are failing to dare, reach, or challenge yourself enough, which is the biggest failure of all.
At work, each day we are challenged by the widest variety of sources, whether from goals set, limited resources, time constraints, or intense competition from competitors. But the biggest challenge is your not taking chances due to a fear of failure. Michael Jordan confronted that fear, and look where he has gone in life.
