For 2011, Embrace Failure as a Stepping Stone to Success

Failures are milestones on the success journey. Each time you plan, risk, fail, reevaluate, and adjust, you have another opportunity to begin again, only better than the last time. As sixty-seven-year-old Thomas Edison said as his laboratory burned to the ground, "Thank goodness all our mistakes were burned up. Now we can start again fresh."

Quoted from Failing Forward, John C. Maxwell

Today, make a fresh start.

  1. Like this encouraging quote. Good to remember after getting a rejection. Just keep plugging away sooner or later the water will quit bubbling up into your row boat of success and you'll have smooth sailing.
