Default Try Again, Fail Again, Fail Better!

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

-Abraham Lincoln.


Hey folks, just sharing some newbie/notso newbie knowledge from a book I read constantly. The title is the title of this thread, and its an amazing read.

Only about 67 pages in length, a decent ebook, and it's helped me through a lot of troubled times.

Always Do what you're afraid to do.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Just because this is daunting and you've never met yourself with success, doesn't mean you're doing everything wrong and you need to give up, even if this applies to life.

If a thing is worth doing, its worth doing badly.

- G.K. Chesterton

If you find that things have gone all wrong, all haywire and blown to shit, remember Henry Fords words.

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.

And always, ALWAYS REMEMBER,

Failure is the condiment which gives success its flavor.

- Truman Capote

Hope these words of wisdom help someone like they've helped me. I've got more quotes if anyone needs them.

Never, EVER, give up.

I really like the G.K Chesterton quote. From the looks of it, I guess you do to since it's in both your post and in your signature.

Thanks for the list.

Post Re: Try Try Try Again

Try Again, Fail Again, Fail Better!

Or

Try Try Try Again

Thanks for this. I believe, we should keep on going. They said Paul of Tarsus once said...." After you have done everything to STAND.......STAND"

In otherwords don't stay down. If you fall....rise up.
If you fall....rise up
If you fall....rise up
If you fall....rise up
If you fall....rise up
.......

Keep on rising up until you make it.

Very important to understand this saying. why I am saying this is because i noticed when i used to fail, i kept on behaving like a fool!! Because I used to do the same thing over and over again expecting an improvement.

In otherwords, when you don't achieve something or you fail.....do it intelligently this time...Period!

So don't be dishertened, keep on trying and you will see dramatic results in no time.

There is no failure, but challenges.






It's not over until it is Over!

failure is just a part of success. if you see it this way, than it can change your perspective, and will give you enough courage to start again, to start renew.

Hi everyone
Failure is a lesson of which you should take benefit to not take again this same way. Failure is the recipe to success. Lot of successful people failed before succeeding. Everybody failed in life even Bill Gates. Failure is also an opportunity. Know that you are lucky to have a try where lots of people would have been.
Thanks for reminding us this.
Have a nice day

Failure doesn’t mean you’re a failure,
it does mean you haven’t succeeded yet.

Failure doesn’t mean you haven’t accomplished something,
it does mean you have learned something.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been a fool,
it does mean you have a lot of faith.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been disgraced,
it does mean you were willing to try.

Failure doesn’t mean you don't have it,
it does mean you have to do something in a different way.

Failure doesn’t mean you’re inferior,
it does mean you’re not perfect.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve wasted your time,
it does mean you have a reason to start fresh.

Failure doesn’t mean you should give up,
it does mean you should try harder.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ll never make it,
it does mean it will take a little longer.

Failure doesn’t mean God has abandoned you,
it does mean he has a better way.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
-
Albert Einstein

I have no problem failing. I just try to never fail the same way twice. In IM, we play a lot of numbers games - CTR, conversion rates, and so on. This can be applied to life and business as well. If only one out of 100 attempts leads to success, that is wonderful!

It means I know how many times I have to fail!

Why would failure bother me when I know that after enough failures I will succeed? The concept of instant success is wonderful, and I would love nothing more than to be an overnight millionaire. The problem is, that rarely happens!

I like the Truman Capote quote you offered. Until you experience how bad it can be, you cannot know how good things are.

I have learned so much from my failures. How not to do something, how to change the way I do something, how to do something totally different.
