Saw the following on Twitter:
“Past failure often furnishes the finest material from which to build future success.” ~ Harvey Mackay
This quote, from one of the top entrepreneurs and leaders in modern times makes a terrific point. We can see our failures as failures and leave them at that, becoming discouraged and giving up.
Or, we can dissect them, learn from them, and — rather than starting from scratch — actually utilize the experiences as a step up; building upon them to create even greater success in the future.
Like most things, I suspect it is simply a personal choice regarding which path we take.
Your thoughts? And, please feel free to share any personal examples.
