Forging Success Through Failure


It sounds like a complete paradox that we would make or forge success through failure in life, but it is true in its meaning and application. Fear is one of the main pitfalls to success in any endeavor you will take on. The definition of success, fear, and failure is subjective, meaning that each might look a little different for every person. I believe it is essential that we clearly define what success looks like and understand what might hold us back from it. Fundamentally, without failure, there would be no progression towards success.
