Failure is Success

Failing is to be strived for! If you aren’t failing, you aren’t at the edge of the envelope of your abilities, and if you aren’t at the edge, you aren’t stretching yourself, so you aren’t learning, so you’re just wasting time. Failing is how nature succeeds. Evolution works through failure of the poorest (they get et) more than survival of the fittest. Muscles grow because you work them to failure, and they then respond by getting stronger. Your spinal cord learns not to touch fire by getting burnt. Failure is not just handled gracefully by nature, it is critical.

Sometimes, we (I) just need a reminder.
