Curious to walk, a toddler falls while trying to figure out his steps, a pregnant woman huffs and puffs dejectedly while trying to push the baby during delivery.
These failures are essential. The failure helps the toddler eventually find the balance and the failure guides the mother to finally take a deep breath and push enough to bring her baby into this world.
if we stay in tune, there’s a lot to learn.
Failure is the service of learning.
When is the last time you stood before a mirror, looked into your eyes, and said:

Furthermore we have to learn from them in order to move forward just a tad bit wiser. Regarding the less fortunate events, is that even fair? Taking two...
