Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
William Jennings Bryan
The key to success is to keep growing in all areas of life – mental, emotional, spiritual, as well as physical.
It is better to fail in originality, than to succeed in imitation. He who has never failed somewhere, that man can not be great. Failure is the true test of greatness.
Success is a result of consistent practice of winning skills and actions. There is nothing miraculous about the process. There is no luck involved.
I learned much more from defeat than I ever learned from winning.
It hurts to fail. I’ve failed and I’ve never liked it. A mentor gave me some wonderful advice, which I share with you. He said, “Ray, give yourself 24 hours to be upset. When the 24 hours are over, ask yourself what lessons failure taught you. They are there if you’ll look. Be grateful for them, learn from them. Then, shake it off and move on.
When has failure taught you an important lesson?
What was the lesson you learned?
How did your failure make you a better person?
