We’ve all heard the stories about inventors getting it right after numerous failed attempts and baseball players with home run records who also hold records for the most strikeouts.
Here is another about having to endure failure while on his way to become one of the greatest ever to play golf. Jack Nicklaus won as a pro 70 times up until his 40th birthday. To do that, he lost 81% of the times he played! One more example to support the acceptance of failure. Jack holds the record for the most number of wins in major tournaments. That number is 18. To do that he also came in second 17 times!
I’m wondering how many times people may have given up too early because they didn’t understand failure is just part of the process.
Here is a big high five to doing and failing!
