Success Starts With Failure!

Thursday, April 12, 2012

Failure is the hallmark of success. It can be the starting point of a new venture, such as when a baby learns to walk; it has to fall down a lot to learn the new skill. Failure is also the mark of a success you've worked for. When a pole vaulter finally misses in competition, it shows how far he's come. That failure becomes the starting point for his next effort, proving that failure is not final!

    Yeah, totally true... it depends on how one takes the failure for... You can use it as a motivation to go for it or as an excuse to be a failure yourself. emoticon

    Interesting, it is true we will all make mistakes but it is what we learn and do from that mistake that really matters.

Do Not Stay Down!

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down.

Accentuate the Positive! Eliminate the Negative!

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have.

    It IS a bad habit! For me, those times when I'm feeling sorry for myself are the times I need to whip out that gratitude journal! That elicits the smile on my face to "fake it till I feel it". If I have a smile on my face, eventually my demeanor is going to catch up!

Do What You Can Do!

Monday, April 09, 2012

Never feel bad about what you have done. Feel good about what you can do.
