“Remember that failure is an event, not a person” – Zig Ziglar

Everyone fails at one time or another and it can often feel like you will not recover.  How many times have you had the wind knocked out of you because of a “failure” only to discover a little ways down the road it wasn’t so bad?

Would you consider Walt Disney a failure?  Why would you not?  He was fired by a newspaper editor because “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.”  He went bankrupt several times.  So why do you say he is not a failure?

Walt Disney took the failures and built on them and now we have the largest media conglomerate in the world based on his visions.  When you have a “failure” in your life see how you can learn from it and get back on your feet.  You never know what is waiting for you just around the corner.

 

Thanks to Dan in "48 Days" for the quote from Walt's editor.

Yes, yes, yes!

A failure isn't 'failure' unless we don't learn anything from it. It's our mistakes that teach us the greatest lessons, and sometimes a failure is just the thing to get us to change course and find the path we should be taking.

I like to think that life is comprised of many failures, but instead I call them stepping stones and learning experiences. It's through failure or setback that we can become our best. If we always succeeded, then where's the reward? The real success will end up coming from a life well lived... Dare to live free!
