Moleskin:
I recently heard a podcast that talked about how highly successful people view failure. Basically, you do not fail. You may fall, but you get back up and keep going. You only fail when you give up and quit. I then came across the following quote by David Goggins:
“There really is no situation that is hopeless if you have the willingness to continue to try. It is this small incremental change in how you look at situations that evolves & expands your mindset. You must always believe that it might happen in order to keep moving forward.”
SYITG, Heidi
