Everywhere you look these days, people’s achievements are being celebrated, whether it be in the papers, among our family and friends, or on social media.
And why not? Success is a wonderful thing and worthy of celebration, but so to is failure.
OK, so hear me out on this one. Failure gets a bad rap and most of us go to great lengths to avoid messing up.
But here is the thing: we are all going to fail at some point — whether it be a succession of small errors or one monumental disaster.
