The biggest mistake that one can make in performance is not moving forward after the last mistake.
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.
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.
The beautiful thing about learning is that nobody can take it away from you.
B. B. King
The roots of education are bitter but the fruit is sweet.
However disorienting, difficult, or humbling our mistakes might be, it is ultimately wrongness, not rightness, that can teach us who we are.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever.
One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time.
If you want to increase your success rate, double your failure rate.
Thomas J. Watson
One thorn of experience is worth a whole wilderness of warning.
James Russel Lowell
