Succeed in Failing 19 September 2016

When you fail to succeed, succeed in failing.

Everyone fails (learns by experience). Yes, you do too. The key is whether you are going to take failing with elegance and as a lesson to grow and learn from or are you going to huddle away into your personal hideaway, never to try again?>
