We can run from it... or learn from it.

Experiencing failure is inevitable...

people make mistakes all the time, 

but rarely are our mistakes or failures

catastrophic or fatal.

To be human is to make mistakes 

and fail at some things,

but life goes on.

We should never equate our worth

by the failures which 

may have occurred in our lives.

Failures are never a complete 

representation of who we are.

Walt Disney was fired 

by a newspaper editor because he... 

"Lacked imagination 

and had no good ideas."


failure is where the majic is made.

Failure can press us

and give us greater determination,

strength, and insight.

Our failures can lead to 

greater discoveries!

The failure of the caterpillar

is the birth of the butterfly.

The death of the seed

is the prelude to its resurrection.

Failure has its upside.

Our failures can take us places

that we that we would not have seen

or experienced otherwise. 


Through our failures

we can learn more than ever 

about our strengths,

talents, and resolve.

Our failures can be 

accidental realizations

that give us new perspectives

 and greater vision.

Our failures can be the impetus...

the foundation for greater successes.

Embracing possible failure is key

to taking on a variety of challenges.

Our failures can catapult us

to new heights!

Our highest hopes are often delayed or failures.

Most delays and failures prepare us 

for bigger and better things.

The “Negative” phases of failure

can actually perform a constructive function.

Failure can force us to accept our loss

and prepare us for the task of rebuilding,

and this rebuilding can yield beautiful results.

Our failures may contain in its debris 

all that we need in order to perform 

our true purpose in life.

It's not success or failure...

it's success and failure

that leads us to genuine innovation.

Most success stories have a shared foundation

 in not succeeding in what they first attempted.

Most success stories share many botched first attempts

 and errors which may have been

the key ingredient needed to give birth 

to higher revelations and possibilities. 

Failure is often the rock bottom foundation

that spurs us to real success.

Some of the world's most successful people 

experienced massive failure before succeeding. 

Many saw failure as an important stepping stone.


Just look at the lives of those who,

through hard work, guts, and perseverance

are now renowned for their achievements.

We must embrace failure as a necessary step

to unprecedented success.

When Sidney Poitier first auditioned 

for the American Negro Theater

he flubbed his lines and spoke in a heavy Caribbean accent

which made the director angrily tell him to 

stop wasting his time.

A young Henry Ford ruined his reputation

with a couple of failed automobile businesses.

When we take a closer look at the great achievers,

 throughout history,

we will notice that they were able to see the lessons 

of the experience and continue to push forward.

The capacity to err is crucial to human cognition.

To achieve any worthy goal, 

we must take risks. 

We may fail incredibly, 

or we may succeed incredibly, 

but to achieve our personal best,

to reach unparalleled heights,

 to make the impossible possible...

we must not fear failure.

May the fear of regret

 become your fuel to press on, 

and take your rightful place in life.

There is no honest and true work,

with constant and sincere purpose,

that ever really fails.

Noble efforts will make seeming failures,

but trifles.
