Failure

There’s a saying in the military that goes like this:

“Pain is weakness leaving the body.”

I propose a corollary that goes like this:

“Failure is ignorance leaving the brain.”

Here’s the thing...

You can’t become strong without experiencing pain.

And...

You can’t become wise without experiencing failure.

Pain and failure are not experiences to be avoided at all costs.

They’re a sign that you’re probably doing something right.

Yours,

—J
