Failure is as much a part of greatness as success
Greatness is more than just success. If it were only success, it wouldn’t be all that great. It’d seem all too natural, or too easy. You might be great for it, but not too associated with greatness. At least not as much as someone who had to struggle, overcome obstacles, rebounded from failure, developed character and show us all those desirable human qualities as determination, tenacity, resilience, among others… maybe even stubbornness. In fact, think of all those you know associated with greatness. Pick out those about whom you can identify having faced failures and put them in one group. Look at the other group. Which group do you admire more?
I know my answer! 🙂
