In working our personal development programs, it can sometimes be difficult to remember that there are positive benefits inherent in the inevitable failures on our road to success.

Author Michael Korda suggests that we should “Never walk away from failure [but] on the contrary, study it carefully and imaginatively for its hidden assets.”

Most of us can see the learning opportunities in everyday “learning curve” failures.

However, if the failure is substantial and significant enough, or if failures are occurring much too often, finding those “hidden assets” can be problematic.

In this case, we might benefit from this overview by Tony Robbins:

Success is the result of good judgement.
Good judgement is the result of experience.
Experience is of the result of bad judgement. (1)
