Don’t fear failure – use it

Saturday evening reflections on the day.

People who are successful use failures as a way to learn and a way to practice. Failure is a lesson learned.

“Success is most often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.” – Coco Chanel

“Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” – Denis Waitley

“It’s failure that gives you the proper perspective on success.”
– Ellen DeGeneres

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
– Winston Churchill

“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.”
– Johnny Cash

“No human ever became interesting by not failing. The more you fail and recover and improve, the better you are as a person. Ever meet someone who’s always had everything work out for them with zero struggle? They usually have the depth of a puddle. Or they don’t exist.”
– Chris Hardwick

Remember your ‘why’ and you’ll be able to keep going.
