Don't let that let down get you down.
If you are human, you will have the occasional interaciton with failure. It does not make you any less worthy of achieving success. In fact, failure is an opportunity to review your strategies, reevaluate your goals, and strengthen your resolve to try again.
“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” - Paulo Coelho
Part of the reason failure tends to weigh heavily upon our minds, is because we tend think about it has a final result to some thing we were working to achieve. This is a mistake. What we really need to do is see failure as the opportunity it is.
If things go well, and we succeed, seldom do we take the time to examine our efforts and enter into a process of improvement. On the other hand, failure almost
always necessitates that we revisit our strategies to improve (professional, personally, and/or a combination thereof).
Be original, show off your vulnerability, and tell your story.
Failure also allows us to demonstrate to others (and most importantly to ourselves) our tenacity, courage, and resilience. Truly, we're not made any stronger by success. It is adversity that causes us to grow beyond our circumstances.
And, when we are truly transparent about our failures, it allows others to be inspired by our abilities to rise from failure and walk even more boldly towards #holisticsuccess.
