Here’s when failure was accepted as part of the process
Would you be angry at a baby who falls while learning to walk?
Of course you wouldn’t! So why are you annoyed when you make mistakes now?
When a baby falls over, we accept that’s part of the process.
When we’re trying to achieve a goal, we have difficulty accepting that we might fail.
Why can’t we accept that failure is PART OF THE PROCESS!
In the same way that walking is new to a baby, your goal is probably something you’ve never done before.
Failing is PART OF THE PROCESS. It’s completely NORMAL. Accept it and LEARN from it.
Try. Fail. Learn.
Repeat many times.
