Why do we fear failure? Whether school, family, business, or even the church, we fear failure. Is failure something to be feared? Can we benefit from failing?
Edwin Land said, “The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.”
Through failure, Edison learned the necessary components to invent the light bulb.
Through failure, Macy learned how to run a successful business.
Through failure, Orville and Wilbur Wright learned how to fly.
Failure can be devastating, if we allow it. Instead, when used properly, failure becomes the stepping stone to the power of success.
