Make failure an investment

Make failure an investment, not a hardship.

Learn from every failure, and then apply this learning to your next attempt. Better yet, take the attitude that there are no failures in life, only lessons to learn from. Then, you will become an unstoppable force.

Through these struggles, you will realize that it is not just what you achieve but what you become along the way. This will cultivate a growth mindset, which interprets challenge and failure not as a signal to throw in the towel but as a natural, healthy part of human growth and achievement.

Og Mandino said it beautifully: “I will be likened to the raindrop which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger; the star which brightens the earth; the slave who builds a pyramid. I will build my castle one brick at a time for I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking. I will persist until I succeed.”
