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
