100 Words: Failure is an Option

Failure is an option.

In fact, it's a certainty.

It's also essential.

By failing, we come to know, what we do not know. The question is, how will you respond to your failures?

My son just finished two soccer tournaments, with a great team. 

They lost every game.

But no one had more fun. No one. 

They played hard and lost. 

They applauded the winners. 

They smiled the whole time. Real smiles.

They retired with grace, and character.

Their failure became their greatest victory. 

I can't get the last game out of my head, there's a lesson in there somewhere...
