Leadership Minute: Content to Fail?


My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure – Abraham Lincoln

On the journey of leadership there will be failures. I’ve had my share of mine, how about you? So the question is not whether we will fail but are we content with failure. Until you address this mindset and work to overcome it you will never rise to the level of success you desire. Until this issue is settled you will never reach your potential as a leader. Don’t be afraid of failure on your journey because you will experience it, but never allow yourself to be so comfortable with failure that you stop striving for excellence.
