The only time you don’t fail is the last time you try anything – and it works. William Strong

In this world successful people have mastered an ancient skill. This is the skill to ‘fail forwards’.

How do you fail forwards?

You use failure as a lesson and a stepping stone that keeps you moving forwards towards your goals.

The not so glamorous secret of success is that you will fail and that your attitude to your failures is what will make you successful. Every ‘overnight success’ suffered setbacks and failures, but every time they learnt from them and moved forwards.

So, from today on, when something doesn’t go your way or the outcome is a grand failure, look at it with fresh eyes. Find out what went wrong, learn from it and keep failing forwards.
