Truth About Set Backs and Failure

Stay strong if you had a tough week.

And remember:

"Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit." -Napoleon Hill


"It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome." – William James

Listen, I've been failing my way to success for years. And you can fail too if you try. Or you can hide, and not taste failure or success at all. Be willing to get punched in the face now to wear the Championship belt later.

“You have to fail a lot to learn. And the only way to do that is to start testing things.” – Will Bonner

Fail forward fast to get to success,

PS - "Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success." - Brian Adams

Nice article. You are so right, failure is a part of life. Failing can be a winning situation if you can find the intestinal fortitude to take something positive from the situation.

Actually, I believe those who never fail, have no idea what it is like to really succeed.
