15min @wef clip – Hilaree O’Neill: #Failure Frees Us from #Perfection

Text from you tube “When you spend your life climbing and skiing the world’s highest peaks where mistakes can be a matter of life or death, how do you think about failure? Hilaree O’Neill shares the lessons she’s learned. ”

which in summary are

1) Failure frees us from perfection

2) Failure forces us to face our own mortality – mortality teaches us gratitude – gratitude is the foundation for real joy

3) Failure means you have the courage to step out of your box and try something unknown to you – which creates character and empathy by exposing vulnerability  – character cannot be developed in ease and quiet
