Failure is never “the end,” and neither it is indeed “failure” the way our mind may perceive it. We are generally our own worst enemies and are – I am willing to bet – doing a lot more RIGHT than we are wrong.
Even when we falter and don’t reach the end we *think* is the correct one, there is a strong possibility that we are headed for a great success (part of a larger tapestry we aren’t always aware of.)
In missing the mark we learn a great deal, and for many of us those lessons stay top of mind. Take what you see as a “failure” and focus on the good – what you have learned, and what you steered away from, may well have you rerouted for greatness.
