We sometimes look at failures and challenges as negative indicators of ourselves, rather than opportunities to learn. This is treacherous territory. Our being is a choice. It’s who we’ve been in the result, not who we are now; a new choice. When debriefing outcomes, recognizing actions taken is important, yet more crucial is raising our awareness of our being when taking such action. Clarity around our being is paramount over what we actually do. We can learn a tremendous amount from examining our being; greater, I assert, than the value derived in looking at what we do or have done.
