Here's Blog quote #528...
"A failure is a man who has blundered but is not able to cash in on the experience."
In the middle of a wonderful book 'The Magic of Thinking Big.'
One of the chapters discusses failures and what IS a failure. More importantly it discusses that all of us experience 'temporary failures.' Things just don't always go as planned, or as smooth and perfect as we originally map them out. That's called LIFE!
The lesson here is not to use the old, "Oh well- that's the way the cookie crumbles" or "That's the way the ball bounces. It's luck or fate. nothing we can do about that."
No-- the way to success-- and avoiding failure-- is to learn from the mistake, mishaps or the roadblocks that we all run into. 'Cash in,' as Hubbard says, by taking what you can from the experience and get better next time. The best keep trying and experimenting and learning. Next time they are a little better. Again they get set back, and learn still more. Get up, keep moving and apply the lessons of each the temporary failure to future SUCCESSES.
That's my view...what say you?
