Learning from Failure
A key sentence at the beginning of the section says: "...I have come to understand what part of me is suffering when I fail: It's just my ego."
Later she says: "Some version of that hunger dwells within all of us. We all have that lunatic presence, living deep within our guts, that refuses to ever be satisfied with anything. I have it, you have it, we all have it. My saving grace is this, though: I know that I am not only an ego; I am also a soul. And I know that my soul doesn't care a whit about reward or failure. ... "
I commend the whole book.
