“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to try just one more time.” – Thomas Edison
If, at first, you don’t succeed…
then you’re probably on the road to growth and development.
We spend so much time planning and strategizing – IF we’ve even come that far with our countless ideas and splendid plans – that, once we actually launch/open for business/go live, there’s a lot of self-pressure to succeed.
Yes, success is sweet! And, many would-be flights crashed and burned before success touched Kitty Hawk.
So, can we be as excited about crashes, burns, fails, or even epic fails as we are about “success”?
There’s an old adage that success comes from good decisions; good decisions comes from wisdom; wisdom comes from experience; and experience comes from bad decisions.
Question is: are we willing to travel that path upward toward success?
Where can you take one of your recent “bad” decisions today and do a multi-level upgrade to success?
It may be “the road less traveled”…but you might as well leave your footprints on it.

“Behind every successful man there’s a lot of unsuccessful years.” – Bob Brown
