Not too very long ago in a Life Coach training I discovered the idea of failure as a positive.  It means you tried.  You probably tried something you have not done before, or were not very comfortable doing and the class was taught to go “TA DA!’ It comes from a Calvin and Hobbes comic where Calvin gets his feet tangled falls in a heap then bounces up and yells “TA DA!”

The following business owner gets that concept to a T.  This company rewards employees to take big edgy risks.  Each month they celebrate the winner of the “Heroic Failure” award.   We could all learn from this concept – risk should not be accompanied with fear of consequences of failure but rewarded otherwise we all end up not stretching and doing only precisely what is instructed – wherein innovation dies.
