“There can be no real freedom without the freedom to fail.” –Erich Fromm

We grow up with the hard-driving, industrial-age mindset burned into us that “failure is not an option.”

What if it were?

When would you create something that you’re not creating?

How would you grow in ways you’re not growing?

Why would you be willing to venture into projects, initiatives and dreams that you’re not venturing?

Where would your freedom be located, in here or out there?

Got freedom to fail?

“The freedom to fail is vital if you’re going to succeed. Most successful people fail from time to time, and it is a measure of their strength that failure merely propels them into some new attempt at success.” –Michael Korda
