I may never become extraordinary at anything that I do, but it won’t be from a lack of failure. I recently stumbled onto this video from Benjamin Von Wong that perfectly sums up my relationship with failure.
The simple premise is:
Fail Your Way to Extraordinary
The Faster You Fail, The Faster You Improve
All too often when you talk about failure people think you are being “too hard on yourself” and they want to look at the positives or “half full” view. But for me failure is “Yang” to successes “Yin”. Without one the other doesn’t exist.
So in spite of my god given talent for failure, I’m hoping to become much, much better at it.
