Just wanted to share some motivation with my sp family...
"Stories For The Heart" Compiled by Alice Gray


Jonas Salk, the great scientist and the discoverer of the vaccine against polio, understood the concept of being encouraging. He was once asked, "How does this outstanding achievement, which has effectively brought an end to the word polio in our vocabulary, cause you to view your previous 200 failures?"
His response (paraphrased) was, "I never had 200 failures in my life. My family didn't think in terms of failure. They taught in terms of experiences and what could be learned. I just made my 201st discovery. I couldn't have made it without learning from the previous 200 experiences."

Winston Churchill, too, was raised with encouragement. He was not intimidated by errors. When he made one, he simply thought the problem through again. Someone asked him, "Sir Winston, what in your school experience best prepared you to lead Britain out of her darkest hour?"
Winston thought a minute and then said, " It was the two years I spent at the same level in high school,"
"Did you fail?'
"No," replied Winston.

" I had two opportunities to get it right."
