“Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” -Winston Churchill
I don’t know about you, but from time to time I make a mistake.
I misjudge people. I hire wrong and fire wrong.
I choose bad investments.
I can say the wrong thing at the wrong time.
I make bad judgments.
I’ve learned you can recover from mistakes. To be sure, some mistakes have permanent consequences. But no mistake I’ve ever made kept me from trying to do better as I continued on my path.
Churchill’s quote reminds you to not get stuck when you have a setback. Failure doesn’t have to be permanent. It doesn’t have to be the way you operate.
When you keep walking after the setback , you learn life keeps offering up shots at redemption. So, keep walking.
