FAILURE is a requisite for SUCCESS! A man who has failed many times has learned many lessons! Every failure indeed leaves a shadow, which serve as stepping stones on your road to success. Lincoln ran for every office and FAILED, until finally running for president and SUCCEEDING. Michael Jordan didn’t make the varsity basketball team. Steve Jobs was fired from his own company. JK Rowling was rejected by 12 different publishers before she was finally able publish her now famous “Harry Potter” book series. I can go on and on, from Walt Disney to Henry Ford, and Albert Einstein to Steven Spielberg; they all failed tremendously and repeatedly before finally achieving success. In fact, my entire life has been one massively complex interlaced system of failures, all of which have come together at a single POINT that is my present state of being. It is how we RESPOND to failure that defines us as individuals and determines our fate. A man who has not become accustomed to failure will certainly never enjoy the fruits of success. Where on EARTH would I be without all of my failures? Not the man that I am today..
