[1 minute psychology] ‘Failures’ are the stepping stones to success

Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again – Nelson Mandela

Thanks Nelson, I need frequent reminding that ‘failures’ are often the stepping stones to success – not evidence that I am a failure.

And as I’m scaling up my work – the more comfortable I can get with the discomfort of failure, or the possibility of it – the faster I can scale.

Failure isn’t always a stepping stone to success – and sometimes success is failure-free. But it’s extremely difficult to succeed when you are not willing to fail.

Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again - Nelson Mandela
