Spanx founder, Sara Blakely was raised by a father who encouraged a willingness to fail as he would regularly ask her and her brother what they failed at each week.
If they didn’t have anything to share, she said he was disappointed. In turn, they were rewarded for having a failure to share. This is amazing because it helps minimize fear and maximize courage.
So what’s this mean for you?
Imagine if every time you had a new idea, or wanted to try something new, you actually did it and failure was not feared but exciting instead! Because at least you know you gave it your best shot.
Imagine if you detached yourself from the idea of achieving success without failure and focused on how each and every failure is a success. Because you were willing to LEARN & find a way to IMPROVE from each attempt.
This of course doesn’t mean fail on purpose, it means fail WITH purpose, with meaning. Failure for the greater good.
