Failing Opens the Door to Succeeding
Too many efforts with potential game-changing outcomes are short circuited by the fear of failing; people with huge ideas become paralyzed by "what ifs," unable to see past the challenges of today. Dr. Akintoye Akindele and Olakunle Soriyan see "failure" and "failing" as two different realities and mindset. Failure is a destination, a windowless prison that does not exist unless you accept that it does. However, failing is a journey, a launchpad into new knowledge and new beginnings and the key to successful innovation and entrepreneurship.
