Fail Early, Fail Often, And Fail Forward

Will Smith get’s frustrated with people who have a negative relationship with failure.

Failure is a massive part of being able to to be successful. You have to get comfortable with failure. You actually have to seek failure.

Failure is where all of the lessons are.

When you go to the gym and workout you are actually seeking failure. You’re taking your muscles to the point where you get to failure because that’s where the adaptation is, that’s where the growth is.

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail.– Confucius quote

Successful people fail a lot.

They fail a whole lot more than they succeed. They extract the lessons from the failure and they use that, they energy, and the wisdom to come around to the next phase of success.

Most people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.– Napoleon Hill

You’ve got to take a shot. You have to live at the edge of your capabilities. You gotta live where you’re almost certain to fail.

― John C. Maxwell, Failing Forward
