One of my favorite quotes is from C.S. Lewis where he says, "Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement."
I will say not fearing failure isn't easy, but one thing that has made it easier has been to work for leaders who believe in me and allow me to grow and make mistakes. It's made me realize that as a leader I hope to always create an environment that allows mistakes and learning from those mistakes.
A few thoughts on what happens when we fear failure:
1. we stay comfortable
2. we stop growing
3. we limit ourselves
I will always set out to succeed, but I will embrace the opportunity to learn from my mistakes along the way so I can be even more successful the next time around.
