The only way you better yourself is by pushing yourself. If you do not push every day you’ll only stay where comfortable.
Failure is a lesson, lessons are to be embraced and absorbed & turned into knowledge to succeed. If we never failed, we would be nowhere.
You don’t get to the top of your game, whatever your game may be, without pushing yourself each. and. every. day.
This sounds like management bullshit to me.

Nope, because something always does come of it
Remember, failure is a learning process. Just because you haven’t reached your goal doesn’t mean you haven’t learnt anything!
You are so right. I’ve learned that interval training hurts, despite the fact I’ve never won a race.Posted 4 years agojekkylMember
It’s all about personal goals. My intention for life is enjoy every minute of it, not by inventing or achieving something, but by having a bloody good time as much as possible. I have to say I do enjoy myself quite a lot, Feed the ID? nah, gorge it!!

I reckon there’s plenty of people who’ve died wishing they’d made a bit more of their lives, including working.
A nurse has recorded the most common regrets of the dying, and among the top ones is ‘I wish I hadn’t worked so hard’.
FWIW: I’m more on about hobbies, interests and things that make you who you are. If work makes you who you are then so be it, but I’m more referring to my hobbies and pursuits, rather than going to my workplace and performing flat out :p
That article is pretty interesting though.
Nail and head though:
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
“This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realise until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content, when deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.”Posted 4 years ago
