Good morning Paul. Failure is just a notice that the journey is not over and another path must be found! Enjoy your day.

Hello Paul - it can be a very fine line between failure and success. 

However, it is the author of the quote you share in this post that has me remembering seeing Dr Brothers when I was a child as a guest.  It wasn't until years later when I learned about her role as a winner as an early television game show winner.  Her topic of expertise (as I recall) was boxing.

Another wise quote, Paul-  We learn and grow from mistakes and failures. If it were that easy, everyone would be a success.

Ahh...I could get lost in those clouds, Paul!

Love the quote and agree with it 100%! In fact, listening to a radio talk show on my way to the office this morning, the coach that was being interviewed shared that winners get complacent. When we lose, we learn...and grow...and do everything we can to improve. "When we win, why bother?!" I used to tell my boys that after sporting events when their teams lost, asking what did you learn? What can you improve upon to win next time? When they won, they weren't looking for ways to improve; they were too busy celebrating their glory!
