Many success seekers out there proclaim that “failure isn’t an option” and most of the time failure is certainly not an option that we like to consider. Everyone knows that positive thinking is best for keeping us on track to success.
Failure, however, is something that most of us will have to face on a number of occasions throughout our lives. It is unavoidable and therefore we may need to change how we look at it, how we let it affect us and how we bounce back from failure.
“Wrongologist” Kathryn Schulz makes a living by thinking about failure, mistakes and being wrong. She believes that we should not punish ourselves for our unavoidable mistakes, but admit, accept and embrace them. She explores how our mistakes may actually help us to think of new ideas.
