You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space!

Hello Paul - stepping stones are part of the path on each journey.  Some can be sturdier than others.  Experience tells us that too.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - Whoa! your photo and the words of Johnny Cash really jumps out at me! 

That photo is extraordinary!!!

Johnny's life story was dark and mysterious to many during his time on earth. Amazingly, he overcame the darkness. June was instrumental and stood by his side during his darkest hours. His determination to have a concert in Prison went beyond anyone's imagination and it was highly successful.

Good morning Paul,

Excellent quote. Stepping stones are so important in building your future. You can take a few backwards sometimes but they help you shore up your steps moving forward.

Hi Paul- this is so important. The mistakes and mishaps in our lives are there to give us a stronger foundation for what is to come.
