Winston Churchill: Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.


Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
- Winston Churchill


What is failure? As the Churchill quote illuminates, a failure is neither permanent nor a blot on one's character. A failure is simply the state of not reaching a particular goal.

Choose to adopt the attitude that sports teams do toward failure. In each game, one team succeeds and one fails. Then the next week they both get out a play again. Life is also a game - with some successes and some failures.

Don't think of failing to meet a goal as something terrible, but merely as this week's box score, and then get ready to play next week's game.
