John C. Maxwell in Failing Forward asks the questions: “What’s the root of achievement? What makes the difference? Why do some people achieve so much? Is it family background? Wealth? Opportunity? High Morals? The absence of hardship?

“No, none of these things are the key, ” according to Maxwell. “When it comes right down to it, I know of only one factor that separates those who consistently shine from those who don’t: The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure. Nothing else has the same kind of impact on people’s ability to achieve and to accomplish whatever their minds and hearts desire.”

An intriguing question I’ve often heard and one you may want to ask yourself today is: “If the possibility of failure were erased, what would you attempt to achieve?”
