When "Failure" Isn't Failure

"Every strike brings me closer to the next home run."
- Babe Ruth

"Failure" is never truly failure. Each time you try and not succeed, it's a learning experience. It gives you the opportunity to try again, but now smarter, wiser  and with more experience. This is when you say to yourself, "I may have not succeeded this time, but I might next time." Knowing this is a key in maintaining a motivation mindset.

Unfortunately, many people see it as a "failure," see it as the end, and give up. I've done it before. We all have. Now you and I know differently.

If you try and don't succeed, look at the results as feedback. Use the feedback to adjust your strategy. Knowing that you're armed with more knowledge, wisdom, and experience is empowering.

If you do succeed, definitely also take that as feedback. Whatever you you're doing is working, so keep doing it. As time goes by, you should be doing more of what works and less of what doesn't. Your life will better because you will get better at life.
