Monday Morning Motivator & Some Points to Ponder...
"Whenever you fail, don't ever think that you failed because you are not worthy. If you have come this far, then there must be something in you that brought you this far; a fire that pushed you on, so put some more gas on the fire and push on. Get up, dust yourself off and come right back, not only with a vengeance but also with a plan to win."
~ Unknown ~

As we start the beginning of a new year, let's put old thinking processes behind us. It is okay to fail. When you do, pick yourself up and start afresh. You now know what doesn't work. Now to find a solution as to what will.

I couldn't agree more Michael. It's OK to fail...but only if you learn from your mistakes and cpme up with a plan to not repeat them.

You are so right, it is ok to fail or get knocked down.  It is not about the number os times you fall but the number of times that you get up.

Great post again buddy!  I think so many folks are afraid to fail that they simply don't even try...they give up before even attempting...sad!

The capturing of the striped bands on the antennae is really cool. Great shot. And failing, mostly. otherwise you aren't trying hard enough.
