A Inspiring Success and Failure Quotes by William Atkinson

We are sending out thoughts of greater or less intensity all the time, and we are reaping the results of such thoughts.

Not only do our thought-waves influence ourselves and others, but they have a drawing power – they attract to us the thoughts of others, things, circumstances, people, ‘luck’, in accord with the character of the thought uppermost in our minds.

No one wants to fail.

No one wants to feel weak or worse, to face the consequences of not succeeding at something.

But the real problem starts not with failing, but when the person starts feeling that failure is a part of his or her identity, rather than something that occurs naturally as a part of life.

The best way to deal with failure is to accept the fact that it is an inevitable part of every person’s success journey.

Success and Failure quotes of Napoleon Hill  “Most so called failures are only temporary defeats and that every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” 

Success and Failure quotes of Napoleon Hill
“Most great people have achieved their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure”

Obstacles or brick walls as I call them often show up to teach us a lesson that you would not have learned any other way.

These are also stepping stones that bring you closer to your goals, because apart from the lessons and the insights they bring, they also make you stronger to overcome greater challenges on your way to success.

I know at the time it may not feel like that, I find now that when I knock down a brick wall I have moved closer to my goal, I feel quite powerful and look forward to the next brick wall as I know that I have  moved forward a little bit more, so look forward to them and knock them down, you are well on your way.

The next time you don’t succeed, don’t let the mistake define you.

Give yourself the time to feel the disappointment and hurt that comes with it, but limit it.

Reflect on what you can get from this experience and move forward.

Another way to cope with it is to laugh at mistakes., humor is an effective strategy for coping with failure.

Learn to laugh at your mistakes and remember, no matter how many mistakes you make in life, you are not a failure unless you quit.
