"Failure leads to success,"
Is a statement I heard today.
How do we learn if we do not try?
So failure can't stand in the way.
To never take a risk in thought word or deed
Or to step out and try something new,
To get outside of the conventional box
Is what innovative leaders do.
So it's important to fail some times
To get outside of our comfort zone,
For that's how we meet new challenges
And new concepts are formed and grown.
From holding the golf club to learning the game
From learning to write to the computer age,
Many failures were first experiences
But failure was not the gauge.
Failure was only the impetus
To encourage men to continue to fight.
To bring to reality the dreams they had
And their failures gave them insight.
So failure can be important
For you as well as for me,
For by stepping outside of our own little box
Is where creative ideas seem to be.
