Pema Chodron explains How to Fail (from Tricycle,)

If you want to be a complete human being, if you want to be genuine and hold the fullness of life in your heart, then failure is an opportunity to get curious about what is going on and listen to the storylines. Don’t buy the one’s that blame it on everybody else, and don’t buy the storylines that blame it on yourself either.

Adapted from Pema Chödrön’s commencement address to the 2014 graduating class of Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado.
