There are times in our Momma lives and life in general that things don’t align with how we envisioned. The road less traveled becomes a wide curve leaving us asking what just happened? We did everything we thought was right and things seemed on track when BAM we collide head-on with the unforeseen. We stand in the midst of the wreckage wondering, “Will we be okay? Will we make it through?”
Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success.
C. S. Lewis
We live in a world that sees failure as a negative and something determining who you are as a person and our self-worth. Failure lurks everywhere and we strive as business professionals, parents, and teach our children to avoid it at all costs. We stunt their growth when we take over their lives, over-protect them, leap tall buildings adverting any struggle along their path so they never feel the pain or disappointment of failure all out of fear. Inevitably we set them up to fail in ways we never imagined and I have to ask is failure as bad as it seems?
