“When failure is not an option we can learn about learning, creativity, and innovation.” – Brene Brown
Dr. Brene Brown is one of the world’s most popular authors and speakers, earning great fame and recognition in particular for her work on vulnerability and courage.
This quotation describes the need to consider that failure is an option. Failure has to be considered a viable option because when it isn’t we believe when we fail that we ourselves are a failure. This is not the case. Failure is not only necessary it is inevitable.
The only way to truly avoid failure is to never try, but in my opinion to never try at all is the greatest definition of failure. Do not be afraid to fail. Be bold, dare greatly, and put yourself out there. If you fail in your attempts to achieve happiness, success, or whatever your goals are, learn from that experience and then try again. Failure is not permanent, it is just another step along the way.
