Personal Improvement

"The only real failure is quitting."

When we stop trying, that is true failure. That's what quiting is. When we change jobs or change relationships, that's not quitting (though we sometimes call it that). When we stop trying at all, that is true quitting and that is true failure. This is awesome news because everything else we label as "failure" is not true failure. Did you not accomplish something? That's not true failure if you keep trying. Did you not advance as far as you would have like in a particular field? That is not true failure unless you stop trying. Did you go in a different direction? That is not true failure if you kept on trying. The only true and real failure is if we quit trying.

What do you think?
