The Leadership Myth That’s Holding You Back by Dorie Clark at Forbes on 5 December 2013.

Many articles are written about successful leaders and how they seem to leap from success to success.  This can be very daunting for those who are just starting on their leadership journey.  Guess what – these successful people have had many failures along the way.  You are certainly going to have circumstances in your life that you won’t know how to handle, and you will choose the wrong option.  What makes you a true leader is dusting yourself off and learning from your mistake.

This reminds me of a quote (author unknown),

“Good decisions come from experience, and experience comes from bad decisions.”
