It’s one of those things that we don’t really like to be told, but the harsh reality of life is that failure is a huge part of making progress. Without putting ourselves in positions where we are not afraid to fail we cannot possibly reach our full potential. If we only do what we are comfortable with then we are not pushing ourselves to be the best we can be. This is true for small things, such as attempting a new personal best in a lift, right through to larger goals like pushing to become the best in world at something. By defeating the fear of failure we are able to push ourselves to become the best version of ourselves. Failing hurts, but it is not what defines us. Instead we are able to use our experience to learn what makes each of us individually great and how we can continue to progress. So be encouraged, failure happens and it is important that it happens – because it makes the sense of achievement all the sweeter.
