“There are some defeats more triumphant than victories.” Michel de Montaigne
Not one super-successful person I know of has not experienced failure in the past. And we’re not talking small ones either. The world marvels at the success of Richard Branson but we tend to forget, or not even know about, the failures and setbacks he had to overcome to get where they are today. True learning and growth comes from figuring out what NOT to do, rather than only knowing what to do. Truth be told, there are many ways to get the same positive results – some are easier than others, some are more fun than others. Negative results are always the product of the same mistakes.
