Embracing Failure

Failure is tough.  Failure is humbling, humiliating and makes you feel inferior in every possible way.

Heck, I even wrote a post after many, many fails on my part. Blog Post Here.

At a recent event I learned about the "Failure Bow" seen here:

Instead of cringing, sulking, hiding make the choice to put your hands up!  

Welcome the humility and celebrate the transparency in the willingness to celebrate.  That transparency of recognizing your not perfect, you're human, gives you space.  That space may be the little thing called happiness.  This happiness can move from that space of failure to transform it into an opportunity to move you and other forward.

See more about the failure bow from Michael Smith in his TEDx talk below:

Hope you bow!
