“Failure is always an option.” –Adam Savage, Mythbusters
“Options are optional – failure is a failure to see options – food for thought” –Geo Geller, @geogeller on Twitter
If you are in business, you face the possibility of failure. If you have the typical attitude toward failure, then you fear it, try to hide it, or find excuses when it happens.
How can you make a better attitude? Realize that failure usually means a learning opportunity. Chose to accept that bad things can and will happen. Recognize that you might be better off after you fail than you were before, even if you can’t see it right away.
