Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.
Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.
You’ll never be brave if you don’t get hurt. You’ll never learn if you don’t make mistakes. You’ll never be successful if you don’t encounter failure.
I would rather fail in a cause that will ultimately triumph than to triumph in a cause that will ultimately fail.
Act as if it were impossible to fail.
The great dividing line between success and failure can be expressed in five words: I did not have time.
The difference between failure and success is doing a thing nearly right and doing it exactly right.
When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important.
I can’t give you a sure-fire formula for success, but I can give you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time.
The Phoenix must burn to emerge.
Never consider the possibility of failure; as long as you persist, you will be successful.
It is the want of diligence, rather than the want of means, that causes most failures.
