Failure - perspective and motivation


Failure is not something to be ashamed of, it's something to be powered by. Failure is the highest octane fuel your life can run on. You gotta learn to make failure your fuel.

When I was on the youth national team, only dreaming of playing alongside Mia Hamm. I had the opportunity to visit the national team's locker room.

The thing that struck me most wasn't my heroes' grass stained cleats, or their names and numbers hanging above their lockers.

It was a picture.

Someone had taped it next to the door, so it would be the last thing every player saw before she headed out to the training green.

You might guess it pictured their last big win, or of them standing on a podium accepting gold medals.

But it wasn't.

It was a picture of their longtime rival, the Norwegian national team celebrating after having just beaten the USA in the 1995 World Cup.

In that locker room I learned in order to become my very best - on the field and off - I'd need to spend my life letting feelings and lessons of failure transform into my power.

Failure is fuel. Fuel is power.
