Wisdom On How To Handle What Looks Like Failure

Recently, as I was pondering and writing about choosing easy whenever the path to a goal gets blocked, I found all sorts of inspirational wisdom on how to handle what looks like failure.

Here’s a short collection from some famous thinkers:

Winston Churchill:  “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

Confucius:  “When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.”

James Joyce:  “Mistakes are the portals of discovery.”

Harriet Beecher Stowe:  “Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”

Thomas Edison: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

Henry Ford:  “Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.”
