Falling Off the Bike
"You always pass failure on the way to success."
- Mickey Rooney
Who among us learned to ride a bike without falling off at least once or twice? Who among us learned to parallel park without scraping the back tires on the curb? I cooked the paper bag of giblets inside the bird before I ever cooked a perfect turkey. I also tortured my folks with a thousand renditions of mindless one-finger songs before I could really play the piano. Success takes work.
TODAY I WILL NOT GET DISCOURAGED IF I FIND MYSELF ON THE BRINK OF FAILURE. I WILL FORGE ON.
