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!


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,

    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
