Quote of the Week
Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time. — George Bernard Shaw
We all make mistakes and we will all continue to do so. The difference between those who find success and those who spin their wheels comes down to the fact that successful people learn from their mistakes. Successful people take the time to evaluate their mistakes and to find the lesson within each one.
You have likely seen or heard a similar quote – If you want to double your success rate, double your failure rate. Again it is in the learning from the failure that the seeds for success are found. Do not be afraid to try something new. Sure you may make a mistake (or two, or three) but if you learn from each mistake you will get better at whatever activity you are working on. Success lies just outside your comfort zone. You have to stretch and grow yourself intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. You do that and you will slowly become impossible to stop.
I wish each and every one of you that are reading this the all success you are capable of and that you deserve.
