I will post, on Fridays, selected leadership quotes. I’ll try to maintain a theme in a given week’s quotes, but if something in particular strikes me that week, it will probably go in anyway!

Failure…

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
~Winston Churchill

Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.
~Dale Carnegie

I honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at something you hate.
~George Burns

Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are.
~Norman Vincent Peale

Success or failure depends more upon attitude than upon capacity. Successful men act as though they have accomplished or are enjoying something. Soon it becomes a reality. Act, look, feel successful, conduct yourself accordingly, and you will be amazed at the positive results.
~William James

 

Take care, and enjoy life,

Andrew

    Great set of quotes on failure Andrew.

    Here is one of my all time favorite quotes on the topic:

    "I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying."
    ~Michael Jordan
