Before success comes in any man's life he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps, some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do.
Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.
But man is not made for defeat. A man can be destroyed but not defeated.
James A. Michener
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
George E. Woodberry
Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure.
Defeat never comes to any man until he admits it.
Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.
Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.
Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
H. Stanley Judd
Don't be afraid to fail. Don't waste energy trying to cover up failure. Learn from your failures and go on to the next challenge. It's OK to fail. If you're not failing, you're not growing.
