Episode Notes

After chasing my dream job for 10 years, I got it. But, in just 6 months I failed to such a degree that I resigned from the position.

If we were to judge by the profiles and pages in social networks, we would say that very few or almost no one experiences failures. People tend to share their successes and they minimize, cover up or hide the low points of life. However, failure does not discriminate against anyone. At some point failure visits all us.

The important thing in our journey through life is to learn from our failures. Or better yet, we should learn to fail. Each failure has an associated lesson attached. If we meditate enough we will realize that failures are often our best teachers. Consequently, it is good and recommended to learn to have a healthy relationship with our mistakes and failures.

In this episode I share my biggest professional failure in order to encourage you. So regardless of your current or past situation, have faith that this too shall pass. The important thing is to get back up again (and again).
