Recently I was moving some boxes with my son. “Dad, these are a box of your books.” Yes, I thought, another failed idea of mine. However, then I also remembered a recent quote I’ve seen. “You need to be prepared to suck at something in order to learn something new.” So, yes it was a failed idea in one sense, but a step on the way to learning.
Our lives our full of these stories and steps. However, somewhere along the way we cease to see it as learning and start calling them failures and wrapping them in shame.
What would happen if we didn’t?
