Think of success as a holistic process – one which results from the combination of goal-setting, excellence, patience, determination and leadership you prioritize throughout your life.
“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It's quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn't as all. You can be discouraged by failure - or you can learn from it. So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because, remember, that's where you will find success.” -Thomas J. Watson, American businessman
Why do you think people are afraid of failing? What can you do to overcome the fear of failing? Support your position with reasoning and specific examples taken from your experience and/or observations. Include how camp can contribute to your own success story.
