Sure you can. You do it all the time. It’s what you do with what you learned that counts.
Call me optimistic but I definitely like the, “Do Over” method of success. A “Do Over” is when you get another chance to do what you initially attempted but this time you get a chance to do it correctly.
History is riddled with people who have had “Do Over’s”. They didn’t succeed in their first, second or maybe even their third attempt but that didn’t stop them. Each setback was an opportunity to evaluate what went wrong, make adjustments, and then attempt it again. Thomas Edison tried over 1000 times to create the light bulb. Imagine if he had given up. How many years would it have taken before someone else came along to invent it?
What I like most about “Do Over’s” is that there is no such thing as failure. It’s as if you’re getting a free pass-go to the school and collect more knowledge- now go back and try it again. With each setback you’re able to evaluate and refocus your energy on the achieving the task at hand.
It is only when you give up on the “Do Over” that you have truly failed for succumbing to failure drains the life blood of creativity that runs through your veins. You must create and be better than your former self. You must move forward by creating and it’s only through the “Do over process” that you continue to learn a new and better way to achieve your desires.
Therefore my friend, there is no such thing as failure as long as you continue to believe in “Do Over’s”.
