Secrets of Success

Failure Is Nothing More...




Our society is so caught up in winning, we forget that most of the great men and women in history have, at one time or another, failed at something. Often repeatedly, and discouragingly. But each failure is nothing more than a brick in the wall that forms the foundation of our success. We can't forget that.

  • JK Rowling is a great and recent example of this. She hit rock bottom with severe depression after a divorce and was a single mom who was as close to homeless as could be without actually reaching that point. Her first book was rejected by 7 to 12 publishers. She is now a top 10 best-selling fiction author of all time, and one of the wealthiest women/people in the world.
