“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”

“When you label a past event ‘failure’ it prevents you from moving beyond the past….  ‘Failure’ is not a detail you can learn from.  Again, it’s a label that describes nothing except a feeling inside of you.  Details are what you can study and learn from….  The key to success is to solve hard problems….  Failure is not a hard problem.  It’s a label.  Failure is in the past.  Hard problems can be solved right now.” -James Altucher
