Success is not the avoidance of failure; instead, success requires failure. To achieve greater success, one must be willing to take risks and risk failure in order to break through limits, learn and grow. Success is the ability to persevere through repeated setbacks. Falling is not failing: it is about whether you get back up and keep moving. For these reasons, failure is a fundamental aspect of leadership and success. Rabbi Jonathan Sacks said, “Failure is the supreme learning experience, and the best people, the true heroes, are those most willing to fail… Even more than the strength to win, we need the courage to try, the willingness to fail, the readiness to learn, and the faith to persist.”
