Most of us think of failure as a plague to avoid at all costs, or something inevitable that we must endure.
But failure is actually a key component to building self-confidence, perhaps even more than success. Counter-intuitive? Allow me to explain. Continue reading
I agree with Darren on this 100%. What we fill our eyes, ears and minds with is what we become and shapes our future.
