But you have soft, warm ground to land on, right? You’re surrounded by people who love you, who like you, who are rooting for you. And you are right! Failures, setbacks, whatever word we choose — these experiences are information that informs us. You know how it goes, when you think you want something so badly and it doesn’t pan out — something else does. This one step leads you to the next step and so on. Your experience today might just become your next FailUp story of tomorrow — the one that becomes your opening speech down the line. Rock on, Ethan.
