Undesirable Outcome

These days I am constantly reminding myself that there is no such thing as failure. There are only outcomes. When we think in this way, "failures" are opportunities to learn and grow. No one who did anything of significance allowed "failure" to paralyze them. Colonel Sanders was rejected 1009 times. And Thomas Edison...?!?! When you see "failure" as simply an outcome, you can change the outcome by making changes ---small or big--- to your behavior leading to that outcome.
