The most important ingredient for success is failure. Every time you fail, you eliminate one way that won’t work therefore being that much closer to the one way that will.
- Thomas Edison

The truth of the matter is you only get closer to success if you actually learn from your mistakes. You can't keep doing the same things and expect to get different results.

I must be getting close now!


  1. Well said!

    I think it was Cheryl Richardson who said, "Lessons are repeated until they are learned." I spent a lot of time in Remedial Life, so it's nice to finally be progressing a grade or two. :)

    Hope you'rehaving a GREAT week!

  2. very true! to me, mistakes are necessary in order to succeed. if you never learn what NOT to do (which is actually quite different than just what to do if that makes any sense), but also being able to draw on those past experiences to avoid future ones. people get so upset when they "Fail" but really, its strengthening them to succeed next time around if they seize that opportunity and grow and learn from it.
