What Are You Grateful For?

I am grateful for: my failures, my pain, my fears, my delays, my miscalculations, my transgressions, my emotional valleys, my poor decisions, my lack of action, my lack of courage but more importantly I am grateful for being wrong.

Denis E. Waitley, motivational speaker, pens:

Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.

The romantic narrative of success is a fairy tale. Embracing failure is a necessity because it’s your guide on the puzzling journey to success.
