There is an old saying that’s often said by people when people beginning an arduous yet not nearly so impossible project:
“Failure is not an option”.
For those of us of a less-cynical, more adventurous and self-forgiving attitude, I have refined this to a more positive statement:
“Failure is a consideration but not a hindrance: Failure is a step, a learning curve and (most importantly) an opportunity to try again.”
Too lengthy? Here is yet another version that may also appeal to the more entrepreneurial:
“Failure only matters when it’s happening.”.
Hmmm. Whilst a head in the clouds attitude is good, make sure you can still see the path of truth. Let me change that again:
“Failure is often mistaken for finality.”
Yes, that’s it. Therefore, let us proceed onwards and upwards.
