Is a misconception…
Have you watched a baby learning to walk?
They fall down a lot, but they don’t stay down.
They keep on trying, and ultimately they succeed.
How far do you think they’d get if they just gave up and said, ‘Some people were meant to be walkers, and some were not’?
Failure in the past does not mean that you will never be able to change. But focusing on past failures, however, does guarantee their repetition.
It is like driving a car while looking in the rear-view mirror. You’re going to collide with what’s ahead of you.
You have to put your past behind you.
No one had more failures than Thomas Edison.
Most of us would have given up, but not him. He once said, ‘Don’t call it a failure, call it an education! Now I know what doesn’t work!’
A winner is simply someone who gets back up one more time than they fall down.
‘We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going’
