Failure is mankind’s most neglected resource.
Any situation stops being a failure as soon as we attempt to learn from it. And we don’t even have to actually learn anything. The attempt alone is enough. Once you’ve taken the action, the constructive process has already begun. And that activity begets more activity. And here’s a profound thought. When you stop or quit, nothing happens.
