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.
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.
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Thomas A. Edison
Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success.
C. S. Lewis
A true friend is one who overlooks your failures and tolerates your success!
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.
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.
Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.
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.
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.
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.
It is better to be young in your failures than old in your successes.
Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.
Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.
George Washington Carver
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.
Do not blame anybody for your mistakes and failures.
There is something good in all seeming failures. You are not to see that now. Time will reveal it. Be patient.
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'.
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.
My failures have been errors in judgment, not of intent.
Ulysses S. Grant
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.
The happy people are failures because they are on such good terms with themselves they don't give a damn.
Don't think about your errors or failures; otherwise, you'll never do a thing.
The most important of my discoveries have been suggested to me by my failures.
