Whether you've lost your job, your business is tanking, or your boyfriend just dumped you, these days it's easy to fall in a slump and feel like a failure. Remember failure is an event, never a person. It is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.
Here are a few paradigm buster quotes and a FANTASTIC short film by Honda:
"Supposing you have tried and failed again and again. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down." ~Mary Pickford
"The only time you don't fail is the last time you try anything - and it works." ~William Strong
"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work". ~Thomas Edison
"There is no failure except in no longer trying." ~Elbert Hubbard
"One must be a god to be able to tell successes from failures without making a mistake." ~Anton Pavlovich Chekhov
"Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat." ~F. Scott Fitzgerald
"Notice the difference between what happens when a man says to himself, "I have failed three times," and what happens when he says, "I am a failure." ~S.I. Hayakawa
"You always pass failure on your way to success." ~Mickey Rooney
Honda on failure. I found it following Guy Kawasaki aka @guykawasaki on twitter:...
"Failure. The mere thought can paralyze even the most heroic thinkers and keep great ideas off the drawing board. But is failing really that bad? We get an inside look at the mishaps of Honda racers..."

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)
The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it.

In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
