15 quotes about failure to put it into perspective

Today I offer you 15 quotes about failure to put it into perspective.

What is failure? We hear this word frequently, but what does it mean?

It’s easy to be crushed by what we believe is failure. However, in my opinion, there is no such thing as failure. There are only outcomes that we didn’t want and lessons to be learned.

It’s not about how many times you get knocked down, dear reader; it’s how many times you can get back up again and have another go until you get it right.

You cannot truly enjoy victory if you have not first known defeat.

And you cannot achieve anything without the experience of at least the occasional failure along the way.

Lessons to be learned:

Every master of their craft started as a complete beginner.

Before anyone was a success, they started as a beginner. And the road from beginner to achiever and master of your craft is inevitably littered with mistakes and failures. These are significant only for the lessons they teach us.

If you’re determined, persistent, and hungry for success, keep trying until you get where you want to go. And if you want to succeed, you’ll learn the lessons and then find a way to achieve your goal and realize your dream. If not, you’ll make excuses.

Never allow yourself to be overwhelmed by a sense of failure. It’s never fatal; at most, it’s just a minor setback from which you can recover. Above all, never, ever give up until you get to where you were trying to go.

Success can be yours if you want it badly enough. And remember this; it is better to try and fail than never to have tried at all.

Here are 15 quotes to help you put the idea of failure into perspective.
