THE POSITIVE SIDE OF FAILURE

A certain man stopped Norman Vincent Peale on the street of New York, and said,” Reverend, I have got problems.” Dr. Peale answered,” well, I know a place that has a population of fifteen thousand people and not a person has a problem.” His troubled friend said, “tell me, where is this place? I’d like to live there.” And Dr. Peale answered, “It is Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx!” Yes, it is only the dead who have no problem.
If you are not failing, the truth of the story is this….you’re not growing.
There are two benefits of failure. First, if you do fail, you learn what doesn’t work and second, the failure gives you an opportunity to try a new approach.
Success is moving from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
If we try and fail we have temporary disappointment, but if we do not try at all we have permanent regret.
Things that hurt, instructs.
Every problem hides a possibility, all you need to do is to sit down then think it through there will surely be loopholes.
One who fails and makes excuse of it, is heading towards another failure.
The darkest time in our life may actually be the blackness before a great new dawning (Robert H. schuller).
