“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed, is to always try, one more time.” – Thomas Edison
Let’s not beat around the bush here.
It’s not a comfortable place.
But to look at failure as a sign to stop, or to give up, is a fundamental misunderstanding of what it actually means to “fail”.
The nature of a failure is not to tell us who we are. Nor is it to tell us if we are good enough, or deserving enough, to succeed.
The nature of a failure is to tell us a way that didn’t work. It’s to educate us.
“Giving up” is our greatest weakness purely because it counters our greatest strength. That of adaptability. As history has shown, we just need to pick ourselves back up, and use what we have learned. It’s why the human race has survived this far.
When we train ourselves to view failure as the teacher and guide it is, there is only one move to make: to try one, more, time.
