We are each responsible for our own lives. Though we may not be able to control what goes on in the world around us, we can always control how we respond to those events.
When something doesn't go as we planned we tend to see that as failure and depending on the seriousness of the situation we might then experience an emotional storm of anger, irritation, sadness, depression, worry, anxiety, guilt or other such stressful state, none of which serve a useful purpose.
Leaders work at developing and nurturing a balanced and empowering perspective. The perception of failure becomes one of feedback and rather feeling stressed the leader is free to form a new plan of action and try again with the knowledge gained.
