Practice, Practice, Practice
"I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the winning shot.... and I missed. I have failed over and over again in my life. And that's precisely why I succeed."
- Michael Jordan
Failures are simply practice. If you examine the lives of the most successful people throughout history, you will discover that before they achieved success, they experienced many failures. Failures strengthen us and spur us on. Once we have gotten right back up, we realize failure is no big deal. We are no longer afraid and focus instead on our next attempts. Failure makes future attempts stronger because we know what didn't work the last time. Experiencing failure pushes many of us to want success all the more.
TODAY I WILL NOT GIVE UP. I WILL TRY AGAIN AND AGAIN, UNTIL I SUCCEED.
