Cheerish Your Failures
Updated: Mar 6, 2019
Failure is an important part of life. Here are my favorite quotes related to failure:
“I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
- Michael Jordan
“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”
-Thomas A. Edison
“Failure is so important. We speak about success all the time. It is the ability to resist failure or use failure that often leads to greater success. I've met people who don't want to try for fear of failing.”
- J.K. Rowling
“When we give ourselves permission to fail, we, at the same time, give ourselves permission to excel.”
- Eloise Ristad
My scientific hypothesis is incorrect more than 50% of the time. However, since I learn more from failure than success, I am always succeeding.
If you don’t do the experiment, you would not know the result 100% of the time.
