If we're the best students in the world, we learn from our mistakes / "failures" as much or really more than our successes. If we DO / take action on something and it doesn't work out . . . is that a failure?
When we learn to Think Differently we have no failures.
Often we think of past choices, mistakes as failures rather than learning lessons. When we view things as failures, we become fearful and start not trusting much of anything, not being willing to "fail."
We often don't trust things we should trust and trust things we shouldn't trust. This is why we strongly recommended that you study "Trust" the white paper.
