Principle 4: Striving for Failure
One of the primary contributors to humans becoming the most successful species on our planet is our ability to learn from trial and error. Our attitude to failure has enabled us to develop, becoming successful through the power of our brain instead of brawn, with our ability to adapt to change being a true strength. If we are afraid of failing then we close down that creativity and our development.
If we are not failing frequently, we are not pushing hard enough, and not learning enough.
There is no such thing as failure if we look at everything as a learning opportunity.
"Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly."
Robert F. Kennedy
"The way to succeed is to double your failure rate."
Thomas Watson, Founder of IBM
"Give me the young man who has brains enough to make a fool of himself."
Robert Louis Stevenson
