Here are a few great thoughts I found awhile back and wanted to re-post:
“Many people dream of success. To me success can only be achieved through repeated failure and introspection. In fact, success represents the 1 percent of your work which results only from the 99 percent that is called failure.” – Soichiro Honda (founder of Honda Motors)
@shaneadkisson: “Failure is an event not a person. Take heart–yesterday ended last night.”
@markbatterson: “many people feel like a failure simply because they have never defined success.”
Michael Jordan’s Nike Commercial on Failure (misssed 9,000 shots, lost almost 300 games, missed 26 game-winning shots, etc.):
Rather than ask, in what ways have we succeeded lately, we should ask: “In what ways have we tried and failed lately?”
Any good examples?
