“Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each
one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine.”
Michael Jordan stated, "I've missed over nine thousand
shots in my career. I've lost over three hundred games. Twenty-six times I took the game winning shot and missed... and because
of the failures, I am a success."
Napoleon Hill, in his classic work, "The Encyclopedia of Success", for which he
interviewed 500 of the most successful men and women in America, found that almost every single one of them achieved their
greatest success just one step beyond where they had reached their greatest failure: that one of the most common causes of
failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat.
When you get into a tight place and everything
against you, till it seems you could not hold on a
minute longer, never give up then, for that is just
place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet
When someone asked Thomas Watson, the founder of
"What is the key to success?" his reply was, "Double
your rate of failure!" Really successful people have
failed their way to the top.
It is in understanding and embracing the concept of
failure that we achieve true
greatness as human beings. -Brian Tracy
You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are
doomed if you don't try.
