Failure is a concept that many individuals find burdensome and detrimental, but according to Derek Sivers in his intentional failure speech, it is a facet that should be encouraged.

The process of learning is compromised of failure, it shapes individuals into striving harder. Struggling forces people into adapting to achieve goals. According to Sivers, the act of failure is a better learning tool than preparation.

For most people, failure isn’t an option because of factors such as business competition and financial stability, but according to Sivers, that mindset needs to be broken to progress further. People with a fixed mindset will not be as successful as much as people with a mindset that’s accustomed to failure.
