Success is a lousy teacher

Insight from my morning study:

To build on yesterday’s thoughts regarding growth and overcoming obstacles I came across this quote about success from Bill Gates:

Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.

Having an attitude of “I can’t lose” limits the potential you have to grow.

In fact, we learn the most about ourselves when we fail.

Learning to face obstacles, difficulties and failure is part of your lessons on growth and success.

Don’t limit yourself by grabbing hold of an attitude that says “I can’t lose.”
