“Failure is the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”

~Henry Ford

Failure has a negative connotation.
That it’s a mark against us – a scarlet letter.
That we actively want to avoid failure at all costs.

Individuals such as Henry Ford offer to look at failure in an entirely different way.

“What can this failure teach me?”
Because failure hurts, we can get defensive. When it happens, we may not want to think about it, no less talk about it. But when we dive into that a bit further, we realize that the only reason we’re doing that, is because our ego is getting in the way.

If we can take that out of it, the opportunity we’ll have, is nothing short of incredible. We’re shifting from a negative connotation to a positive. What can we do with this now, that we couldn’t do before? Failure is without question the best teacher, and if we put in the effort to dive deeper into that uncomfortable instance, dissecting it from every angle with every ounce of humility we have… we’ll have the chance to try again, with the full steam of what we’ve learned.

“You win, or you learn”.
