I fail therefore I am (not)

-Borat

Scientists look at failure and success as a data point; with each failure or success, they take assess the situation and take new action towards moving towards getting their end result. Failures are essentially celebrated because it helps move these scientists in the right direction. This is how we should look at success and failures in our own life. When you go to a restaurant and order something and the food sucks, you don’t look at it and say, “Oh wow I fail at eating”, it simply becomes another data point for you and you make a mental note not to order it again next time. Don’t see failure as a reflection of who you are but rather, treat failures as opportunities for growth and suddenly, the impossible seems possible.
