Failure and fulfilment

Failure is the foundation of your work. … We fail and then we edit and then we do it again.*
Seth Godin

I am so grateful that I came across Seth Godin, more than fifteen years ago now.**

Coinciding with my arrival in Edinburgh, a city that would become a place of experiment, Godin reset my understanding of failure.

Some of my biggest failures have become some of my strongest foundations because I have sought to learn from them and to grow.

And I know the failures aren’t behind me because I need to keep experimenting and exploring, and I know I will mess up, but the only place to be fulfilled is out there pushing the limits of who I ca be, which just happens to be helping others to do the same.

*From Seth Godin’s The Practice:
**I picked up Seth Godin’s Purple Cow.
