Is Failure a Road Sign?
Your attitude towards failure influences the roads you choose to travel upon. Easy roads are packed with proud travelers who never make mistakes. They don't launch businesses because the risk of failure is too high. They see mistakes as potholes to be avoided at all costs.
Visionaries see failure as a necessary road sign needed for growth opportunities. They learn how to navigate on icy roads. They test the limits of all hazardous road conditions. When an accident occurs, they learn from it. They know the perils of venturing outside their comfort zone and go there anyways.
Consider the failure signs in your life as mile markers. Each time you pass one, another important life lesson is tallied on your odometer. Happy travels.
