Monday's Musing

An apt quote for all of us who fear failure:

"Failure doesn't mean you are a failure... it just means you haven't succeeded yet." - Robert Schuller

Have a fabulous week of successes! :)

I tell my kids, "You haven't failed until you stop trying." I also repeat to them (ad nauseum) Thomas Edison's famous words when asked about his failure to produce a filament for his incandescent lamp: "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." (Yeah, they're going to have some really fond memories of me, I'm sure!)

I really like that! If you don't have "failures/non-successes" it means you are playing it safe and not taking chances. How boring would life be if we all played it safe? Phooey on that!

Can you be successful at failing?

I sure could use a week of successes. I always tell everyone else, "you can do it," and I mean it. Sometimes I forget to tell myself that. Thanks for the reminder.
