"Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Everyone likes to talk about the secrets to success. Well... They are hardly secrets - but that's another blog post. But why do we fail at any goal, objective or task in life? Failure, as everyone knows, is a critical ingredient to success. We need to fail, fall short, and keep getting up again to achieve anything worthwhile ~ that's one of life's basic rules. But why do we fail at anything? ~ The real answers are... we were:
- Too Lazy - we didn't work hard enough.
- Too Stupid - we didn't learn from others who succeed.
- Too Weak - we didn't have the drive to do what it takes.
So there it is - Every self improvement book on the planet condensed into three bullet points. What's the good news? We can do something about every single one of them - We Can Get Better as long as we accept the very basic premise. ~ It is and always was us.
