"Some people use failure as an excuse to give up,
to become bitter, or cynical.
Other people look at failure as an opportunity to revisit past decisions and to devise new strategies."
Catherine Pulsifer, Do Not Be Discouraged
"A failure is a man who has blundered,
but is not able to cash in the experience."
"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
"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize
how close they were to success when they gave up."
"Successful people see alternatives and are willing to try different ways.
People who only see failure are unable to see another way and give up to easily."
Catherine Pulsifer, Hope
"Results! Why, man I have gotten a lot of results. I know several thousand things that wont work."
"My grandmother never had a word for 'failure' in her vocabulary. She called it 'life lessons'."
"Always have the situation under control, even if losing. Never betray an inward sense of defeat."
"If you have made mistakes
there is always another chance for you -
you may have a fresh start any moment you choose,
for this thing we call 'Failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down."
"The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows." Buddha
