We beat ourselves up when we do something stupid. Make a mistake, or fail.
We forget that we are miraculous creatures. Able to think, design, build and imagine.
In the animal kingdom, failure means death. Starvation, or becoming a predator’s meal. Unable to find food. Not being able to mate.
Humanity has an amazing propensity for failure, for everything we think of can have a corollary error. Miss your goal? Failure. Not a passing grade? Screw up. Under target for sales? Blew it.
But we get to come back at it. We get to take those failures, and incorporate them into the knowledge of who we are and what we do. Failure is not death, not for us.
Failure is just one step on the path to success.
