I would say that if there\'s if you take anything away from the show at all, I would say take away that failure is not a finale. It\'s a fulcrum. Failure, it is a place from which we learn, we grow, and we thrive. I was giving this talk about two months ago, in Austin at Renaissance weekend and there was an astronaut in the audience. This astronaut had done three different spacewalks and at one point I said, except for you sir, because failure for you would most definitely be the finale ou there. Now for the rest of us walking around on terra firma, unless you are attached to an oxygen tether, failure is the fulcrum. Failure is the place from which we grow, we learn and we discover more things about ourselves. We realize that success might not have looked like what we expected success to look like when we first took the first step. It doesn\'t mean that it\'s not a success. So I would urge people to understand that failure is not a finale, it\'s just fulcrum.
