When you make a mistake or flop in your endeavor, learn from the experiences so that you are wiser the next time round. To repeat the same mistake over again is deem as a failure on your part.
Would you like me to give you a formula for…success? It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure… You’re thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all…You can be discouraged by failure – or you can learn from it. So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because, remember that’s where you’ll find success. On the far side of failure. –Thomas J. Watson, Sr.
“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.” -? Neil deGrasse Tyson
