Motivation to fail

Quote

I, myself, have had many failures and I’ve learned that if you are not failing a lot, you are probably not being as creative as you could be – you aren’t stretching your imagination.

John Backus

Choose to be insipired

Quote

We define ourselves too often by our past failures. That’s not you. You are this person right now. You’re the person who has learned from those failures. Build confidence and momentum with each good decision your make from here on and choose to be inspired.

Joe Rogan

Joy of strife

Quote

I’ve done my best, and I begin to understand what is meant by ‘the joy of strife’. Next to trying and winning, the best thing is trying and failing.

L.M. Montgomery

There’s so much to smile about

Quote

Just because you fail once, it doesn’t mean you’re going to fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself because if you don’t, then who will? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.

Marilyn Monroe

How to increase success

Quote

If you want to increase your success rate, double your failure rate.

Thomas J. Watson

Failing sucks

“Failing sucks. But it’s better than the alternative.”
“Which is?”
“Not even trying.” Now he did look at me, straight on. “Life’s short, you know?”
Sarah Dessen

Yin and Yang

Quote

Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.

Truman Capote

Success and failure

Quote

When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important.

Ellen DeGeneres

Deal with failure

Quote

Falling down is not a failure. Failure comes when you stay where you have fallen.

Socrates

Embracing self-doubt

Quote

I have self-doubt. I have insecurity. I have fear of failure. I have nights when I show up at the arena and I’m like, ‘My back hurts, my feet hurt, my knees hurt. I don’t have it. I just want to chill.’ We all have self-doubt. You don’t deny it, but you also don’t capitulate to it. You embrace it.

Kobe Bryant
