There’s a podcast that I’ve been listening to for a couple of years called Internet Business Mastery. It’s one of the few podcasts that I actually listen to faithfully, and go back and re-listen to periodically to reinforce something that I may have forgotten.
The current episode deals with failure, and quite simply states “Failure is Feedback”. That’s nothing new. It’s certainly not something that these guys came up with, but I enjoy the way that they present it for their audience. The podcast deals with creating an internet business, but the topic of failure is certianly not confined to business. Whether it’s personal, business, relationships, or whatever else… failure is simply a feedback indicator. We can choose to accept that. Or not. We can choose to learn from it. Or not. It’s rarely an easy lesson, but it’s an inevitable one. No one goes through life without stumbling.
Some of us are more adept than others.
