When You're Smiling

The whole world smiles with you - right?

But those in trouble, grieving, facing financial trouble and failing in business are often isolated and confused.

My column this week deals with the difficulties and contradictions of failure, something we don't understand or study enough.


  1. Some say we must fail in order to learn how to succeed. How much failure we can take, I suppose, is a matter of scale.

  2. There are definitely some people (myself included!) who get discouraged by failure to the point of not trying again.

    By the way, the column I reference has a great ending - lest I portray it too negatively. ;-)

  3. It sure does! I love that "It's a Wonderful Life" moment. A good story.
