Don’t Be Afraid To Fail
In a world where we increasingly work and are responsible for ourselves, it makes sense to view ourselves as a startup of one. And that means changing our relationship with failure, which we too often try to avoid because it is painful. But, as Ben Franklin put it, “Those things that hurt, instruct.” There is no better teacher for your career, book or new venture. By learning from failure, a negative becomes a positive and we turn what otherwise would be a disappointment into opportunity.
