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. Do not tell me this a difficult problem. If it were not difficult it would not be a problem. Do or do not. There is no try. In times of stress, be bold and valiant. Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself, and dares to become involved in experimenting with his own life. Success or failure depends more upon attitude than upon capacity. Successful people act as though they have accomplished or are enjoying something. Soon it becomes a reality. Act, look, feel successful, conduct yourself accordingly, and you will be amazed at the positive results.
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? 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? Eliminate something superfluous from your life. 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.
