What Is Failure? | More Than You Think 306 June 7, 2024

I’ve often called myself a failure. But why? Why does something not turning out the way I wanted it to become my identity? It all comes down to the ego.

Today, I explore definitions and perceptions of failure and ways to reframe it. Failure can be a valuable lesson. We can fail forward into something better with the right mindset.

In my experience, when I’m depressed, my self-judgment is much harsher than usual, and I see a history of nothing but failures. That is not true. It is a very distorted lens.

What if you could let the label of failure dissolve? You can. Don’t be attached to one specific outcome. Be open to all outcomes and results. We live in a Universe of infinite possibilities.

If you are in a crisis, do not listen to this. 

Please call or text 988 to be connected to trained counselors that are part of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline network. If you are outside of the US, please search for suicide prevention in your country. 
You matter! Please choose life.
