Failure Doesn’t Mean…

Failure doesn't mean“Failure doesn’t mean you are a failure it just means you haven’t succeeded yet.”

- Robert H. Schuller

Quote of the Day.

Part of overcoming our fear of failure is redefining how we think of failure.  For many of us, failure is a crushing defeat that directly reflects the core of our being:  to experience failure is to prove that we are a failure.

To avoid the risk of being a failure, we avoid the risk of failing.

As Robert Schuller points out in today’s quote, that is an incorrect mindset – and one that will only hold us back.  When we consider failures to be lessons-learned, and combine that with a “don’t quit” attitude – success is eventual, not just possible.  If you discover every possible way to fail, but keep trying, success is inevitable.

With this mindset, fear of failure is a fear of inevitable success.
