FAILING FORWARD FAILURE AS A NECESSARY MEANS TO SUCCESS By Travis Daigle, Character Development Coach Work is a very logical process. There’s a task that needs completion and someone gives time and energy to complete that task. The question is: Are they passionate about what they do? Many people say that chasing your passion is foolish. Our brains are hard-wired to pursue pleasure, avoid pain, and conserve energy. However, chasing your passion is often painful and requires massive amounts of time/energy for what can seem to be little pay off. Our biology is diametrically opposed to the difficulty of this process and our culture sees failure as something to be avoided like the plague. To even know what we are passionate about can involve a series of painful failures… let alone trying to monetize that passion. The irony of life is that it is these low moments that reveal our greatest strengths, if we choose humility and reflection… If we understand failure as a necessary means to success.
