Failing forward to success
I have been feeling a little bit discouraged about all the mistakes I have made since I began this journey. However, I have realized that it's not the making of mistakes that's my problem - it's how I react to them and what I have learned in the process that's important.
Here are some quotes I found to help me think about failure in the right way.
"Mistakes are the portals of discovery" - James Joyce
"Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently." Henry Ford
"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." Thomas Edison
"Failures, repeated failures, are fingerposts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success." C.S. Lewis
I can choose to focus on my failures or I can choose to learn from them and move another step forward towards success.
