 “Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.”

~Truman Capote

This simple but powerful truth is worth repeating over and over again:  Failure in the pursuit of worthy goals is wonderful.  Yes, failure doesn’t feel great in the moment, but you have the capacity for thoughtful reflection and the ability to flex your efforts to learn from you failures and adjust for the next attempt.  Every miss is an opportunity to adjust your aim and make the next shot more likely to hit its mark.
