Success and Failure

Tuesday June 5, 2012 #425

“A man may fail many times but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.” 

~J Burroughs

If you are striving to improve yourself, to reach your goals, to help others succeed, you will need to take action and take risks.  As you do so, you will sometimes succeed and sometimes fail.  The challenge:  When you succeed, recognize your achievement but don’t gloat.  We succeed on the shoulders of the people who’ve taught us lessons along the way.  Nothing is accomplished alone.  And, when you fail, take responsibility vs. blaming others.  Only you control your reactions to failure.  Choose to reflect, learn and adjust vs. getting trapped in the blame game.
