Aug 15 – Failures Day

15 Aug

This is a day to look back at our failures and embrace them. If not for that, we couldn’t grow as individuals. In fact, one of my favorite commercials of all time expresses just that.

My career deals with failure on a daily basis. I present ideas and they can fail internally, on the client level or on a consumer level. You have to always be ready for things to go wrong, but not being afraid to fail is what makes us courageous enough to push forward.

I remember when I was sure that I would win a certain award at school and I didn’t. Not only was that failure humbling, but it taught me to never put that much emphasis on things like that again. Success is what you make of it and no trophy, certificate or peer acknowledgment will ever change that.
