Difference between ‘Not Trying’ and ‘failure’

The simple truth is – no great success was ever achieved without failure. It may be one epic failure. Or a series of failures – such as Edison’s 10,000 attempts to create a light bulb or Dyson’s 5,126 attempts to invent a bagless vacuum cleaner. But, whether we like it or not, failure is a necessary stepping stone to achieving our dreams.

Some think tanks said very effective lines for us to read and renounce.

1. “Failure isn’t fatal, but failure to change might be” – John Wooden

2. “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” – Jack Canfield

7. “Giving up is the only sure way to fail.” – Gena Showalter

8. “If you don’t try at anything, you can’t fail… it takes back bone to lead the life you want” – Richard Yates

9. “Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” – Denis Waitley

10. “When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important.” – Ellen DeGeneres

14. “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” – Paulo Coelho

15. “Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever.” – Lance Armstrong

16. “Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill

17. “I’d rather be partly great than entirely useless.” – Neal Shusterman

20. “Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.” – C.S. Lewis

21. “Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” – Napoleon Hill

22. “You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.” – Johnny Cash

23. “It’s not how far you fall, but how high you bounce that counts.” – Zig Ziglar

24. “Failure is so important. We speak about success all the time. It is the ability to resist failure or use failure that often leads to greater success. I’ve met people who don’t want to try for fear of failing.” – J.K. Rowling

25. “When we give ourselves permission to fail, we, at the same time, give ourselves permission to excel.” – Eloise Ristad

26. “With a hint of good judgment, to fear nothing, not failure or suffering or even death, indicates that you value life the most. You live to the extreme; you push limits; you spend your time building legacies. Those do not die.” – Criss Jami

“What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?” – John Green

Rise up, shrug your fears, grab all your courage and strength to hit it hard. Be so determined that even failure will fear to come close to you. NOW is the time to be in action and accomplish your dream. Live your soul. #GoNatural.
