“I’ve failed over and over…”

Michael Jordan

“I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” -Michael Jordan

It’s been a while since we’ve posted something, but posting something about succeeding after failure is rather apt for today. Failure isn’t a one-dimensional aspect, or at least it shouldn’t be looked at as such. Failure is a three-dimensional thing; the first part you see is the failure, and that’s the part that looks the most intimidating and the most all-encompassing. It’s also the part that’s the hardest to get past. But once you overcome the failure, you see the second part, which is the drawing board. You erase whatever mistakes you made that led to the failure and keep the lessons you learned from those mistakes. You use those lessons in creating a new plan that you then implement. And life saves the best for last because the third dimension of this three-dimensional idea is the remarkable success you achieve.
