You don’t have failures. You have research and development

Posted 29 Jun 2018

This great quote by Pharrel Williams is great for changing your perspective on failure:

“Have you ever noticed when you think you failed, its the ego in your mind that tells you, Its so bad. Everyones looking at you.You start to sweat across your forehead, and youre like, Oh, my God, I cant believe this is happening. The whole entire world is watching.

And none of it is true. When youre doing great, you shouldnt listen to that voice. When youre not doing as great, you shouldnt listen to that voice.

Life is a rollercoaster. Theres valleys and peaks. When you hit that valley, if you cant deal, then you wont make it. So switch the word failure for lesson. All successful corporations do that. Its called R&D.

You dont have failures. You have research and development. You just have to change your perspective. Theres no such thing as a failure.”

— Pharrell Williams
