“It doesn’t matter if you try and try again, and fail. It does matter if you try and fail, and fail to try again.”- Charles Kettering

Failure is the way. It takes courage to bounce back from failure. Failure is painful. Failure is embarrassing. No one wants to fail. Failure is inevitable. The best way to deal with failure is to expect it.

Don’t worry about it. Just learn from it. If you try and you didn’t succeed, you are not a loser. You are a winner. Because winners try, but losers don’t.
