Idea of the Month: Progress through Failure by Liam L.
While reading a seed thought book, on a beautiful March night, I came across a quote that leaped out at me. It described what I must do in order to progress to my full capabilities.
Henry Ford said, “Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.”
I stopped and read it again, and a spark flared in my brain. I thought about all the times I would have improved my character and not regressed if I had known and believed this.
In the future, when I meet with failure, I will think of what Henry Ford stated here, and I will attempt the task again with a more willing attitude. Since I will already have learned what not to do, I will also have gained knowledge of what I should do the next time. This seed thought is the idea of the month to me because of the intelligent advice it provides. When I use this idea in the future, it will help me grow to become the person I want to be.
