cohealth tweet chat: great wellness fails (august 15 at noon EDT)

August 13, 2012

in cohealth

we have a painfully awkward relationship with failure. everyone fails; nobody likes to admit it. yet great minds talk openly about the critical importance of failing. they consider failing and trying again to be the required two-step to success.

churchill: success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

carnegie: develop success from failures. discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.

lincoln: my great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.

einstein: anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.

jordan: i can accept failure, everyone fails at something. but i can’t accept not trying.
