Nobody wakes up in the morning and decides they want fail. At the same time, there’s no better education for anyone than failure. As our muscles adapt and respond to the weight that causes muscular failure, so do we learn and gain wisdom from whatever it is that causes us to fail. Look beneath the surface of many great successes, and you’re likely to find a trail of failures that preceded them. Take Thomas Edison’s story of the incandescent light bulb. He failed 10,000 times before he got it right.

No matter whom you are or how lofty your goals recognize that when failure finds you… and it will; all you need to do is learn from your mistake and adapt. Use your mental muscle to dig deep and bounce back.
