I am the first to admit I have failed frequently and I am grateful for it.
So many people have a fear of failing that they do not even try. Aside from the failure itself, they are afraid of seeming foolish or being embarrassed by their failure, and so they do not take the risk.
But failure is great. Without failures, we cannot be stepping outside of our comfort zones. Without failures, we can never learn what works and what does not. Without failure we cannot be a great success. The people and the companies that have achieved the greatest success are those same people and companies that failed the most and failed fast.
They make fast, calculated decisions, they take the risks and they win far more often than they fail. You too need to fail to win. And the faster you fail, the faster you win.
To put it another way, the greatest risks you take in life are not taking risks at all.
