Battle of Inner Personalities - Have My Failures Lead to My Success?
I read an article the other day that failure is the most important ingredient to success. Yea, I've heard this before and I've said it many times. The angle taken in this article was your chance will come around but you have to have your hand in the air to be picked when it does, so just keep you hand up. I might of paraphrased that poorly so here is the link to the article: Scott Adams' Article
I feel I've had my fair share of failure and no lack of sticking my hand up to be picked. I'll will say it is frustrating to recognize that it is a numbers a game and you just have to wait for your number. Of course what do all those poor saps that never achieve success have to say about failure...didn't work out to well for them. On many a tomb stone should be carved "He died with his hand in the air. He got picked for the wrong thing one more time."
