Arianna Huffington, like so many entrepreneurs I’ve heard from over the years, has not only screwed up, but screwed up royally, as she says in her quote today that really resonated with me.
We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes – Understanding that Failure is not the opposite of success. It’s Part of of Success! — Arianna Huffington

Arianna Huffington has had a life filled with excitement, success and failure. But, she has never let failure get her down. She, like most entrepreneurs, view failure as a part of success. If you don’t try, you won’t ever fail. If you fail, it means you at least tried.
I have failed on several enterprises, but each one taught me something. Failure is not the opposite of success as Arianna says. It is an integral part of success because it is a learning process, a character shaping process, and it can be a motivating process on the way to success.
If, like me and others, you hate to lose, you hate to fail, when you do, it usually makes us more determined to not do it the next time we try something. You have to take the things you learned, try again, refine, define, align and then Thrive!
Which, by the way, is the name of Arianna Huffington’s new book. Thrive, The Third Metric To Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom and Wonder is available at Thrive.HuffingtonPost.com
or at Amazon.com. I’ve provided a link on the show notes here at GoalGettingPodcast.com/qod31
