Man, failing is terrifying. And unpleasant.
It’s so awful that we avoid it at all costs. Sometimes the stress of possible failure keeps us up at night. Ruins our appetite. Shuts down our creativity.
But just like shining a light under the bed eases our fear that monsters are chomping on the bed springs, taking a nice deep breath of failure can be downright refreshing.
We learn great big lessons when we fail, even if we’re hurting.
Most of all, we learn that failure isn’t the end. It doesn’t kill us. It doesn’t stop us, even if it slows us down for a while.
Mighty Ugly is about celebrating the benefits of failure so we’re not so afraid of doing big things. Because big things rarely happen on the first try.
