Failure Does Not Define Me


Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. – Winston Churchill

Quotes about Overcoming Failure

I was in my late thirties to early forties to learn that my failures did not define who I am.

It was something that I probably learned that one failure means you are a failure.  It is almost like you jinx yourself.  You start to try something, before you start it you have already told yourself that you will fail with this venture also.

I once heard a lecturer speak about how you can set yourself up to have a bad day.  You wake up in the morning and you start thinking, ‘this is going to be a bad day’.  You have company and someone makes a statement that you don’t look good.  It sets off something within you and you actually start feeling ill.

I know the definition of insanity; “doing the same thing over expecting different results”.

So, I have learned that one failure does not a failure make!
