As an entrepreneur of ten years I've learned all too well what failure feels like. The perpetual wheel of reinventing myself has been the only constant in my life. Ups and downs, highs and lows; the roller coaster of perceived failure can be exhausting.
Success happens when we go outside our comfort zone, stretch ourselves beyond recognized limits and experience new people, places and things. Success happens outside "normal", and the only way to reach it is to walk though failure without losing your enthusiasm.
Success and failure are symbiotic-without one the other is not possible. So whatever your perceived failure is right now embrace it. Maybe you're experiencing failure for the first time, or maybe you're sitting by me in the roller coaster of ups and downs. No matter the number of failures in your tally box, know that each failure is simply a message that says, "Congratulations, you're living life!" Then take a deep breath and get ready to walk through your next failure knowing you've already achieved success.
