Are You Walking the Edge? Afraid of Failing?

Recently I viewed a makers' website slideshow and I found it to be impressive.  Seven female entrepreneurs lifted up the big mistakes or failures that actually moved them forward to success.  The slideshow title was termed Fail Fast - meaning, admit mistakes quickly - no languishing; instead, move on and be proud that you tried and gave it your best.  But (and this is a big but), don't let failure immobilize you or prevent  you from ,moving forward, risking again, and walking the edge again.  It is important to understand the learning power of failure.
