None of us want to stumble over our own feet as we walk through our lives.  First, the imbalance created is disconcerting and  distracting.  Second, we might stumble and fall and hurt ourselves.  And, who wants any of that?

The natural extension, then, would be that the more sure-footed you are along your path in life the smoother your trip to wherever you are going.  Here’s the conflict, though.

You can’t achieve any successes without frequent discouragement and failure.  It’s those who suffer the greatest discouragement and failures in life and never give up who become the greatest achievers.

The great inspirational writer, Dale Carnegie, put it this way:  “Develop success from failures.  Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.”

Sounds like a sure-footed approach to great success to me.
