People are not remembered by how few times they fail but by how often they succeed. Every wrong step is another step forward. If you are never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you never take chances. How was Einstein able to conceive the Theory of Relativity?

Break a habit. Do something that makes you feel insecure. Carry out an action with complete attention and intensity as if it were your last Imagine you only have one year to live. What important things would you be doing? How would you be allotting your time to accomplish the most you could? This exercise is one method of going after your priorities.
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. Nothing of great value in life comes easily. How was Einstein able to conceive the Theory of Relativity? He said the one crucial thing that helped him was his ability to visualise: what would it be like to be riding on the end of a light beam? A man may fall many times but he will not be a failure until he says someone pushed him. People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I do not believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they cannot find them, make them. In times of stress, be bold and valiant.
