Without doing one cannot fail. But one cannot succeed either.
I realize that a writer’s business is setting fire to Piggy Sneed-and trying to save him-again and again; forever.
A lot of people fail to prosper because they are too busy dreaming in their sleep than chasing their dreams in life.
When your success hovers from one person to the other, it will definitely get to someone who will regard it as failure.
Most successful people move from fear to failure; to faith and then to fruitfulness. That’s the trend.
My friend Richard Carrion, the CEO of Puerto Rico’s top bank, once shared a line with me that I’ll never forget: “Robin, nothing fails like success.
When life gets rough, never think you have failed… allow your self a quality of emotion and introspection. It is called turning inwards. When you observe and examine your mental and emotional state, from your inner core of self – you then can put things in to perspective. Don’t allow your futile attempts to want to change your outer world, take a detour, and instead, change the only thing that you have the power to – your inner world. And remember: There is no such thing as failure-only learning opportunities.
Sometimes I do face failures, but I don’t like failures.
Empty complaints are the sources of everyday failure, but not the problem being complained about. Problems are solvable; but not with complaints. A complainer is just an explainer of problems!
