What some have said about picking up to start again. . . .
Michael Eisner (head of Disney from 1984 to 2005) --
Recovering from failure is often easier than building from success.
Roger Von Oech (Stanford PhD, Creativity Consultant to Apple, IBM, Disney, Sony, and Intel) --
Remember the two benefits of failure. First, if you do fail, you learn what doesn't work; and second, the failure gives you the opportunity to try a new approach.
Brian Tracy (Business Leadership Speaker) --
Remember, you only have to succeed the last time.
Charles Franklin Kettering (GM researcher & inventor with 186 patents) --
An inventor fails 999 times, and if he succeeds once, he's in. He treats his failures simply as practice shots.
Paul, first-century apostle of Jesus Christ--
I press on so that I may lay hold of
that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet;
but one thing I do:
forgetting what lies behind
and reaching forward to what lies ahead,
I press on toward the goal
for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
