Day 41: Failure Leads to Success

Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.

~ Babe Ruth

Today’s inspirational quote refers to the concept that each time a person fails, they are one step closer to success.  To me, this is generally a true statement, and I’ve experienced it firsthand.  Of course, failing at anything sucks.  Big time.  But I think it’s necessary to finding success.

Why?

Because if a person doesn’t try they never succeed.  At anything.  Every failure brings with it a lesson.  Each lesson moves an individual closer to a goal; closer to success.  It’s critical to get up and brush yourself off every time you fail.  Keep moving forward despite the difficulties experienced.  Don’t be afraid to strike out, your next swing could be the home run you’ve been working for.
