I failed. My time stunk, I was tired and hot. My legs cramped up and forced me to walk. My race was a failure. I failed.
"Failure is not an option" is a quote from the Apollo 13 movie. Supposedly spoken by flight director, Gene Krantz. I don't like this quote. I believe failure is imperative.
You learn from failure, you will find a better way. Your victory is much sweeter once you continue past failure and succeed.
When you fail, you are given an opportunity to reassess and learn from it. No one is immune to failure. Embrace it, learn from it, get tough and forge ahead.
It is said that Edison attempted 1,000 times to invent the light bulb. Apparently, he wasn't deterred in his quest for victory. He forged on to victory.
Never give up. Never quit. Forge ahead.
