The Gifts of Failure with Laure Redmond

Although failure might initially feel devastating, as if you’ve come to the end of the road, this is the beginning of your journey.

Mistakes are the portal to: creativity, learning something new, having a fresh outlook, and becoming wise. Failure is not the opposite of success, it’s a success building block.
