What is obvious is not obvious to those who cannot see it

It is simple, yet why don’t people understand it? Replicating success is more likely to produce failure. Only engaging with people who are seemingly successful is likely to impeded progression and evolution (in other words: breeds irrelevance and extinction). The seeds of growth begin with failure, time and time again, but what is obvious is not obvious to those who cannot see it.

Survivorship Bias

The Misconception: You should focus on the successful if you wish to become successful.

The Truth: When failure becomes invisible, the difference between failure and success may also become invisible.
