How To Find Success In The Face Of Failure


You’ve failed many times, even though you may not remember.

You fell down the first time you tried to walk.

You almost drowned the first time you tried to swim, didn’t you?

Did you hit the ball the first time you swung a bat?

Heavy hitters, the ones who hit the most home runs, also strike out a lot.

 Big Failures – Turned Big Successes

  • R.H. Macy failed seven times before his store in New York caught on.
  • English novelist John Creasey got 753 rejection slips before he published 564 books.
  • Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times, but he also hit 714 home runs.

Quotes-about-failure Failure Isn’t Falling – Unless You Stay Down

If you think about it, failure doesn’t really consist of stumbling and falling. The failure is in staying there on the floor. Success is in finding something while you’re down there to pick up with you.

After his butcher shop in Brooklyn was robbed four times in one month. William Levine bought a bulletproof vest. Other business proprietors asked him where they could get a vest like his. Mr. Levine began taking orders on the side.

Needless to say Levine got out of the butcher business and ended up full-time president of Body Armor, International. He supplied forty sales reps across the country and sold five hundred to six hundred vests a month making him a very wealthy man.

Get Excited About Failing

So the next time you get into a situation where the fear of failure creeps in remember this.

Don’t let it get the best of you.

Don’t let it stop you.

Look for the opportunity that lies in the situation.

Get excited by the fact that you are closer to success than ever before!
