“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.

How To Win

When Life Gives You Lemons Spiral Notebook

This is how you win: “When life gives you lemons, make a lemonade.” Don’t wait for the perfect time to win. There is no perfect time to win. You can make your time perfect. And you cannot win if you don’t know what you want out of life. And you cannot win if you do not start. In the words of John Maxwell, “You cannot win if you do not begin!” Yes, he is right. To start is to win. To start is to lose. But if you don’t start, you cannot win. If you want to move ahead, you must start now.
