Failure Is A Golden Opportunity! - By Catherine Pulsifer

To assure that you will never experience failure:
· don't take a risk,
· don't attempt anything new,
· don't expand on your ideas,
· don't set goals.
Never to do any of these things actually guarantees you will fail. In effect, to never experience a failure limits our learning and our growth.

Why? We can learn from every failure. Failure is a golden opportunity to start again with more knowledge than we had before. To quote Henry Ford, "Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently."

The most important element in the failure equation is your personal commitment to keep trying. Many times when I was ready to quit, I would remember Thomas Edison's quote, "Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
Don't give up on your dreams because of one unsuccessful attempt!
More food for thought:
"Successful people see alternatives and are willing to try different ways. People who only see failure are unable to see another way and give up to easily."

"If you don't accept failure as a possibility, you don't set high goals, you don't branch out, you don't try -- you don't take the risk."

"Persistent people begin their success where others end in failure."

"Each failure to sell will increase your chances for success at your next attempt."
