Sara Blakely’s Definition Of Failure.

“When I was growing up, my dad would encourage my brother and I to fail. We would be sitting at the dinner table and he would ask, ‘So what did you guys
fail at this week?’ If we didn’t have something to contribute, he would be disappointed. When I did fail at something, he’d
high-five me. What I didn’t realize at the time was that he was completely reframing my definition of
failure at a young age. To me, failure means not trying; failure isn’t the outcome. If I have to look at myself in the mirror and say, ‘I didn’t try that because I was scared,’ that is failure.” – Sara Blakely
