Have you ever heard it said, “Failure is not an option?”

Did you know that muscles have to reach failure in order to experience the conditions needed to grow.

Think how this applies to the rest of your life. When we start to see failures as learning opportunities and opportunities for growth we become better. 

Admit failure and always fail forward fast. You either win or learn. You only fail when you quit. The obstacle is the way. Improvise, adapt, overcome.
