“Decide what your experience of failure means. Choose to call your failure a success. Then, re-create yourself anew in the face of this failure. Decide Who You Are in relationship to the experience you are having. Do not ask yourself why you are having it. There is no why, except the why you give it.
So decide that “I have had this experience in order that I might move one step closer to the success I seek. This experience has been given to me as a gift. I embrace it and treasure it, and learn from it.” Remember that I have said all learning is remembering.
Therefore, celebrate failure. There are enlightened companies on your planet that actually do this. When a “mistake” is made, and “error” is discovered, or a “failure” is experienced, the boss invites everyone to cheer the event! That boss understands what I am telling you here – and his employees would walk off a plank into icy cold water for him. There is nothing they would not do, for he has created an environment of safety and a climate of success in which they can experience the grandest part of themselves, and of their creativity.”
God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, in “Communion with God”
