Let’s take a moment to break down the loathsome and obnoxious statement that is, “Failure Is Not An Option”, shall we? Mmmkay, thanks.
For a multitude of reasons, which I’ll gladly share with you, I detest that statement.
1. Relativity of “failure” is never considered.
2. The phrase implies that failure is a terrible thing; something to be avoided.
3. Because failure is to be avoided, too many people refuse to try new things or take any risks.
4. We take failure personally; we allow it to define us.
