We have all been made better through the education and experience gained after moments that did not turn out as expected. After reflecting on these moments, we reassess our expectations, readjust our steps, and eventually end up with a successful outcome. Eliminating that so called "failure". The media thrives on news stories that highlight failures, and we are tricked into believing it was the final outcome. There are never follow up stories of success and triumph that show the amazing ability people have to move beyond initial challenges and succeed through experience and learning.
It's the education and experience we gain from so called "failure" that propels us to make changes. It moves us toward change in our lives and gives us power to recreate moments and events. The word failure itself has failed us. It depletes our will, and stifles our ability to use our creative energy. When we engage our thoughts and take advantage of the education and experience we have been gifted, the word failure no longer works to describe our events or who we are. Let's move to eliminate the use of this word. There is no failure.
