“People always say Thomas Edison failed at making the light bulb a thousand times in a row. He didn’t fail. He was experimenting with different filaments of wire. He was trying new ideas. And he learned every time. Again, nothing is really ‘failure’. Unless you label it that way. And give up.

I treat everything as an experiment. It helps me start something new. And it helps me prevent getting stuck in the past.

FAILURE = EXPERIMENTATION”

“Learn how to fail so that failure turns into a beginning.” -James Altucher

“He (Dale Carnegie) said that most people fail to achieve their dreams because they don’t set goals.  But he also noted that some people fail because they have too many goals….  Carnegie’s advice was to narrow my objectives down to three, and then two, and then one.  And make that my top priority.” -Mark Ford
