Today, I thought I’d share with you one of the many quotes from the British ex-Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill.
Named the Greatest Briton of all time in a 2002 poll, Churchill is among the most influential people in British history.
“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”
One of the biggest misconceptions is that if you fail at something, then by definition, you are a failure. In fact, the opposite is true. Failure gives you the opportunity to learn something, giving you a great advantage when you try again.
Once Thomas Edison had developed the first truly useable incandescent light bulb, he was asked how he managed to continue in his work when he had had so many failures?
His answer was simply that he’d had no failures, but he’d discovered a thousand ways his light bulb wouldn’t work!
The way to success is to redefine your view of failure.
