Accepting that failure is a normal part of the path to achievement will help you understand that setbacks, obstacles, and roadblocks are also a part of the condition necessary to appreciate success when you have attained it.
"Failures are made only by those who fail to dare,
not by those who dare to fail."
Lester B. Pearson
"A minute's success pays
the failure of years."
- Don't react, take action. You control how you think, how you feel.
If something is bothering you take action, do not react, but act.
"We all find ourselves in situations that at times seem hopeless.
And, we all have the choice to do nothing or take action."
"For every failure, there's an alternative course of action.
You just have to find it.
When you come to a roadblock, take a detour."
Mary Kay Ash
- Don't be afraid to take risks. As the saying goes,
"If you always do what you always did,
you'll always get what you always got."
"As we risk ourselves, we grow.
Each new experience is a risk."
"Progress always involves risks.
You can't steal second base
and keep your foot on first."
Frederick B. Wilcox
