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.
Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success.
C. S. Lewis
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
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.
Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.
It's important to celebrate your failures as much as your successes. If you celebrate your failures really well, and if you get to the motto and say, 'Wow, I failed, I tried, I was wrong, I learned something,' then you realize you have no fear, and when your fear goes away, you can move the world.
A true friend is one who overlooks your failures and tolerates your success!
Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.
George Washington Carver
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.
I don't believe in astrology. The only stars I can blame for my failures are those that walk about the stage.
Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do.
It is better to be young in your failures than old in your successes.
There is something good in all seeming failures. You are not to see that now. Time will reveal it. Be patient.
Many financial and industrial companies have been bailed out with the public's money, but very few of those who had run those companies have been punished for their failures. Yes, the top managers of those companies have lost their jobs - but with a fat pension and mostly with a handsome severance payment.
To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives.
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.
Bank failures are caused by depositors who don't deposit enough money to cover losses due to mismanagement.
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.
The new midlife is where you realize that even your failures make you more beautiful and are turned spiritually into success if you became a better person because of them. You became a more humble person. You became a more merciful and compassionate person.
All the ills of mankind, all the tragic misfortunes that fill the history books, all the political blunders, all the failures of the great leaders have arisen merely from a lack of skill at dancing.
Failures are expected by losers, ignored by winners.
I'm going to have setbacks and failures; I'm not going to see change right away all of the time or most of the time. But everybody I've ever respected has failed at one thing or another. I've definitely fallen on my face. But I've also had a comparatively easy life.
Celebrate your successes. Find some humor in your failures.
Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
