There is no such thing as a person who is a failure, only a person who chooses to identify with the results of something they did.

You are not a failure.

You will experience failure along the way to success, but it just means you found one path that doesn’t work and you need to adjust your game plan. Successful people think in terms of reaching their goal, they don’t focus on the obstacles in their path.

True failure is never starting at all or wrapping your identity in the results of what you do. You are not the results of what you do.

When things don’t go your way, you can choose to see it as confirmation of your being a failure and quit, or you can see it as an opportunity to learn and reapply yourself.

Don’t let failure be the end of your story.
