There is great value in failure. Failure can generate the development of grit: our strength of character. The missed opportunity to learn from failure centers around a pessimistic mindset; an inflexibility for adversity. Conversely failure, with a growth mindset, lends to perseverance and is a chance to develop wisdom and resilience. Failure is unabashedly human, and has been since the Garden of Eden. Failure has happened in every moment of human history, with billions before us clamoring toward a manmade precipice, often tumbling down the slippery slope of the failure chasm. Success can be catalyzed when scraping up and out of the abyss, building mental muscle and mettle along the ascent.
