Quote of the Day
Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.
Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's success or put its failures behind and start over again. That's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that's the way baseball is.
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Thomas A. Edison
Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret and depression. Do not repeat them in the future.
A true friend is one who overlooks your failures and tolerates your success!
Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success.
C. S. Lewis
Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.
George Washington Carver

Part of being a man is learning to take responsibility for your successes and for your failures. You can't go blaming others or being jealous. Seeing somebody else's success as your failure is a cancerous way to live.
My failures have been errors in judgment, not of intent.
Ulysses S. Grant
You don't learn from successes; you don't learn from awards; you don't learn from celebrity; you only learn from wounds and scars and mistakes and failures. And that's the truth.
Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.
Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.
It is better to be young in your failures than old in your successes.
I thank God for my failures. Maybe not at the time but after some reflection. I never feel like a failure just because something I tried has failed.
Once you agree upon the price you and your family must pay for success, it enables you to ignore the minor hurts, the opponent's pressure, and the temporary failures.
There is something good in all seeming failures. You are not to see that now. Time will reveal it. Be patient.
Celebrate your successes. Find some humor in your failures.
Failures are infinitely more instructive than successes.
To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives.
If you call failures experiments, you can put them in your resume and claim them as achievements.
At 30 a man should know himself like the palm of his hand, know the exact number of his defects and qualities, know how far he can go, foretell his failures - be what he is. And, above all, accept these things.
Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes.
In other words, don't expect to always be great. Disappointments, failures and setbacks are a normal part of the lifecycle of a unit or a company and what the leader has to do is constantly be up and say 'we have a problem, let's go and get it'.
Failures are expected by losers, ignored by winners.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
