Let me share a statement that grabbed my attention: “Remember that failure is an event, not a person.” Zig Ziglar
How many times have you thought or heard someone refer to themselves as a failure. Because they did not succeed at a specific task, they did not see the event as a failure, but themselves.
Sadly, we tend to carry this mentality over to the way we view other people. When others do not live up to “our” expectations or desires, we see them as a failure.
Quality leaders learn from the events (failures) in life and build their own character, or the character of someone else, to ultimately succeed.
