Failure is but a paragraph in the book of each human life. It is the pages that follow that ultimately define you.
I’m not sure who said this, but it is true. If someone knows, please put it in the comments and I’ll give the proper attribution.
You can get back on to the saddle of life and and ride after you fail, or you can give up. Treading water is as bad as giving up.
I’ve learned more by failing than succeeding. I learned not to make the same mistake again and how to avoid similar potential mistakes. Some never learn and repeat what doesn’t work. Such is life for humans.
