EP 159-Redefining Failure

Have you ever failed at something? I certainly have. And while it wasn’t fun to go through, it has allowed me to grow, learn and evolve into the person, practitioner, and human that I am today. However, for many, the prospect or experience of failure will stop them in their tracks, keep them stuck, or play small when they are capable of so much more.

Today I unpack and reframe how we approach failure and dive into how failure is actually necessary for our success. This applies to any area of life, and I share from some of my own experiences with failure that I haven’t talked about so transparently before.

The book I mention and read a quote from is A Happy Pocket Full of Money by David Cameron Gikandi.
