“Failure is impossible”
– Susan B. Anthony –
How do you view efforts that have not gone as planned? Did you learn something from your efforts? Write about one, or some, of these occasions. What did you learn? Did it change anything for you?
One saying that people often throw out without even thinking is “practice makes perfect”. I offer for you now that practice DOES NOT make perfect but rather it makes progress. Along those lines, failure really isn’t possible. The mere act of trying automatically ensures there is no failure. The only failure would be in not trying at all. How could thinking about your efforts in this light affect how you think about yourself?
