Every failure is a step to success…
Would you like me to give you a formula for…success It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure… You’re thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all… You can be discouraged by failure–or you can learn from it. So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because, remember that’s where you’ll find success. On the far side.
Notice the difference between what happens when a man says to himself, ‘I have failed three times,’ and what happens when he says, ‘I’m a failure.’
Remember the two benefits of failure. First, if you do fail, you learn what doesn’t work and second, the failure gives you the opportunity to try a new approach.
I know of only one true failure never having tried to grow as a person. All else is simply happenstance.
Failure doesn’t mean you are a failure it just means you haven’t succeeded yet.

Some of my fondest memories in sports were a result of failure, injuries, setbacks, and mistakes. I learned far more about myself and gained more character in those difficult times than I ever did when success came early.
Not many people are willing to give failure a second opportunity. They fail once and it is all over. The bitter pill of failure is often more than most people can handle. If you are willing to accept failure and learn from it, if you are willing to consider failure as a blessing in disguise and bounce back, you have got the essential of harnessing one of the most powerful success forces.
A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.
