Failure is the best teacher! I love this and try to live by it... Via Brad Andersohn ~ Community Manager (ActiveRain): ActiveBrad thinks we should ALL wake up every morning and get excited, motivated, and inspired to fail. This is how we learned to successfully crawl, walk, talk, and run. Succeeding at ANYTHING in life is not much different. So go out there and fail at something successfully today so you can succeed at it quicker!
