Quote-A-Day: Day 24

The only difference between and is your perspective.

Failure can be devastating, if we let it.  But, there really isn't any reason to be stymied by failure.  In fact, failure and success aren't that different; they are just simply different steps along the pathway of life.

In truth, the only thing that separates a failure from a success is how you view the outcome.  So, we can either embrace a failure as a step towards future learning and later success.  Or, we can see failure as an insurmountable barrier that prevents us from going any further.  Same failure, different perspectives.

For me, I would rather think of failure as simply the next step in the voyage towards discovery.  When visualized from this standpoint, we should want to fail.  After all, if we aren't willing to take the steps towards success (regardless of what they bring), then how will we ever get to where we want to be?

What do you think?
