That's the theory, but it surely doesn't feel that way sometimes. As I ponder this quote, I realize that failure is subjective. What seems to me to be a failure may appear as great success to someone else.
Picking up a cart key for a recent round of golf, the clerk gave me "lucky #7." He said, "Maybe you'll shoot seven under." I replied, "I would be ecstatic to shoot 7 over!" Alas, my score was considerably more than seven over. However, there was no failure as I was so happy to be out there by myself with my "new" clubs on a day with moderate temperatures (we've had a very long HOT spell this summer).
"Failure" is a black-white concept, and most of life is shades of gray. What if we drop the word "failure" and simply view life as one interesting experience after another?
