We fail all the time, regularly, sometimes with great fanfare but mostly quietly, in your own space with none watching.
We all do.
We need to fail more, failure brings growth, compassion and understanding that no matter what you do and how much effort you put in sometimes that shit don't fly.
Not only do we need to fail, we need to share when we do.
Success does not happen overnight
Not everyone is earning enough to have what they want (or even need)
Not everyone wakes up in the morning with a smile on their face and a song in their heart
When we share our failures we realise that everyone is in the same boat and that when we see others doing great things we appreciate that they have had challenges on the way to their success and instead of feeling jealous or inadequate we cheer.
And that makes failure an important part of the road to success (or a sign to choose a new road) rather than a private shame we keep to ourselves.
