Secrets of Success

Definition Of True Failure



Failure isn't falling down - it is failing to get back up!! Think about Thomas Edison - how many failures did he have before he found the correct filament for the lightbulbs we all still use today!!
" I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work!"
Get up - dust yourself off - evaluate what happened and make the adjustment needed!

  • I love this post! It's soo true!! I was always told by my dad "it's not failure unless you have completely given up!" (I'm so glad that Thomas Edison didn't give up!!) emoticon This was a good motivational read for me today! Thank you! - by AMBERELLE11
