Most people view failure as something negative. Let’s face it, nobody likes to fail. In school, we are taught that anything less than a 70% is failing and failure should be avoided at all costs. When our favorite sports team loses, we certainly don’t celebrate. For most of us, it feels terrible when we try to do something and fail. But what if I told you that failure is a GOOD thing? What if I told you that always succeeding is bad?
As John Maxwell states in his book Failing Forward, “The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception and response to failure.”
