Inspiration and lessons for your leadership journey!
“The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling,
Along my journey, I seem to keep falling down and having to get back up, brush the dirt off, and find a way to get going again. Sometimes they are simple stumbles. You know the kind when you’re walking along and it seems like some mysterious thing catches the tip of your shoe. You don’t quite fall down and you may even try to act like you meant to dance foolishly like that.
Other times, however, I have found myself face down in the mud. There’s no dancing that kind of fall off.
Funny thing however, so many famous and successful people were dubbed ‘failures’ at one or many times in their lives (there’s a good read about 26 of them here and an interesting Slideshare about 60 Famous Failures here).
Like the famous coach tells us in our opening quote, the greatest accomplishment is rising after a fall, setback, or disappointment.
Think about it. For example, you wouldn’t be with that amazing partner of yours if your previous relationship hadn’t “failed” (even if that was thirty years ago).
Whether it’s relationships, job or career, or any number of other areas of your life; problems, stumbles, and falls help define who we are and help us to get where we’re going.
