Very few people ever handle failure with dignity. You’ll see some cry river of tears and lose all composure because of failed plans. It’s amazing how easy it is to lose all your happiness just because you failed. A lot of people talk about wanting to succeed but very few consider the possibilities of failure and how to receive such outcomes.
If only some of us were able to build the right attitude to failure then we would better handle success. Maybe if we had more people who refuse to quit because of a few obstacles, then there would be more success stories to share. There’s a strong relationship between success and failure and these quotes are bound to help you find this link.
