Have you ever been so stifled by failing at something that you basically just want to give up completely? That is certainly a normal reaction. But it’s also important to know and understand that failure is inevitable. It’s a natural part of the process of growth, and it certainly helps us grow and learn from our pursuits, whether they be business-related or personal journeys.
