You Can Fail, and That’s OK

“The biggest bit of advice that I’ve ever received,
and something that I’ve seen and experienced, is that,
‘You can fail, and that’s OK – just keep going.
… … It’s that things can fail and absolutely will go wrong –
just keep trying, keep trying, keep trying.’”

Trying & Failing at Business

Defeated Before You Do Anything

“Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it,
for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before
you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are.”

~ Dr. Norman Vincent Peale,
Author & Minister

Failing Yourself

“I think failure is mostly when somebody doesn’t believe in themselves enough to attempt something,
if they’re too frightened or they’re too intimidated or they listen to the naysayer.
I think that really is failure—when you fail yourself.”
~ Marg Helgenberger,
Actress & Philanthropist
