Success, Failure and the Drive to Keep Creating

I came across this great TEDTalk this afternoon — Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat, Pray, Love) reflects on why success can be as disorienting as failure and offers a simple — though hard — way to carry on, regardless of outcomes.

I had never thought of success in this way before — or even connecting similarities to failure.

In general I’ always trying to push forward and do better tomorrow than what I did today — and in some ways, that produces just as must work and concentration to continue to improve and do better as it would be to overcome a failure.

Its a neat talk — check it out.
