Failure is not durable
Failures encountered at one age become catalysts for success in another. It’s a matter of time, and place, and people in your life. It’s also a matter of your knowledge and readiness, and how you can take your accumulated experiences and make progress (not regress) as you move forward.
Key moments in development include the times you crash and burn. Learn from them, let them incite you to try a different approach, a new direction, an improvement in knowledge and capabilities.
Better to stumble, and learn from it, than follow the herd. That’s how new frontiers are created.
