Without failure, improvement is impossible
My dear friend Trevor Smith wrote:
When I was learning to walk, often I would fall. Never asking “why”, I’d stand back up. As time went by, I would still fall, but rather than stand, I’d first ask, “Why?” Funny, isn’t it? As an infant, “unknowing” and “unwise,” I knew that asking “why” was a waste of time and that standing up was the only thing to do. Without failure, improvement is impossible. Beneath all suffering lies the beauty of opportunity.
Trevor offered his heart and his mind every time we spoke. I hope you can feel his kindness, strength, and wisdom in his words.
