LESSONS from FAILURE “Smooth 98.1”
Welcome to LESSONS from FAILURE on Smooth 98.1. Life is NOT just about the CONTENTS of WHAT PEOPLE DO…It is WHAT WE DO compared to WHAT WE COULD HAVE DONE. It’s NEVER about WHAT WE ACHIEVE, as it is about WHAT WE COULD HAVE ACHIEVED or at safe point, WHAT WE CAN STILL ACHIEVE. This is what I have found in my many journeys with failure, while most individuals do not really master what they do daily, most however recognize the deficit, as well as the value of a new skill in addressing the deficit. To those people, the making of mistakes can be integral to the learning process at any stage in their life. But I know something worse and terrible that most people fall victims to on a daily basis. It is a state where the individual does not understand or know how to do something and does not recognize the deficit by foolishly or naively denying the usefulness of the skill.
Consider this recent quote by Bill Gates. “It is fine to celebrate success, but it is more important to heed the lessons from failure”
Whiles your successes and achievements do and actually should inspire you, you should pay attention to the lessons from your failures and especially those of other people. This is great humility! Many times what you celebrate is usually a compromise of what you could have achieved if you only knew something different. Caution is the language of the wise. Always! Always! Heed the lessons from failure, and do it daily. GO!
