“Indifference To Failure”

Versus all the other negative emotional and perhaps irrational reactions to failure that really have no benefit at all and probably a lot of downside.  Instead, indifference to failure — a more cavalier attitude toward trying difficult things but failing in the short term, which is highly likely.  No doubt an attitude that would make the path to eventual success so much easier, as one might be less prone to being stymied by immediate failure.  Plus there’s also the idea that failure is often instructive — that there can be something positive about it.  It tells you something about what you are trying to do or perhaps something you didn’t know about yourself.
