Mark Twain

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

- Mark Twain

Failure is a natural part of everyday life. Failure at its best is a stepping stone to success, a challenge in progress, and the lifeblood of a successful life. Failure offers us the gift of learning, the means to become stronger and grow as a person, the possibility for change and innovation, and the chance to see whole new opportunities. Failure can provide us with the foundation for long-term success if we learn to re-define it, to use it to learn to win through losing, and to cope and to collaborate with it. Ultimately, both failure and success are in the eye of the beholder. We can live successfully by looking beyond ourselves and seeing all the opportunities that the world has to offer those that have the courage to take on new worthwhile challenges and steadily fail towards success. We can truly live successful lives when we dare to harness the Power of Failure.

_____ Charles Manz.
