We all know that screwing up is part of life, but people seem willing to try almost anything to avoid failure.
That’s a bad plan. You cannot find an example of tremendously successful person, venture, company or project that did not include some boneheaded mistakes. From sports figures to politicians, from governments to small businesses, doing it wrong is part of doing it right. Failure is the secret to success.
"Failure: The Secret to Success" is a book about something everybody knows but not many people like to talk about. We’ve all met that guy at a party who goes on and on about life as if it was a country song. However, our desire to keep our failures under wraps is in itself a huge mistake. Everybody who achieves unbelievable victories also knows saddening defeats.
"The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing" - John Powell
