Failure is the vehicle for a greater need - learning. In the medical field, we cannot expect everything to go our way all the time as in life. I remember a story about the Dalai Lama. A desperate man once sought his advice after a setback. He showed a baseball card of Baby Ruth, one of the greatest baseball players of all time. He showed that his batting average was .342. The Dalai Lama told the man that this man who is considered the greatest fails at doing his job more than half the time. Life...
