Quote of the Day

“If you’ve never failed you’ve never lived.”

Those are very powerful words.

This video reminds me of a quote I once saw from J.K. Rowling “It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all-in which case, you fail by default.”

The road to success is often a hard uphill battle. If you are trying to do what others have already done, there is often no room for competition. If you are trying to do something new you are often scoffed at, people are too often naysayers, they don’t realize the genius behind your ideas. It takes a lot of self confidence to persevere despite the lack of fanfare.

This video so beautifully shows how too many success stories started out with failures. When seeing this video one’s mind wonders how many future successes were there that were sadly discouraged? Whose ideas were squashed underfoot with nary a backwards glance?

But on second thought one realizes that indeed they were not future successes, for a future success is only one thing, and that is someone who can go from failure to failure without losing his or her momentum.

 People say I have a lot going for me I’m sorry, but I just can’t see I can’t see because my worst enemy Is not my life, but inside of me.

You know all my emotions, Many they may be. You know when to be gentle, And when to chastise me.

I find it hard to describe this thing that we share, since there's nothing else that can even compare.

What is more pure, more laden with potential than a shiny new paper unmarked and unmarred? What holds more promise, ripe with possibility, than a crisp early morning of a day yet to unfold? And which of these can compare to the mind of a young student whose curiosity and excitement, whose wonder and amazement are the harbingers of the potential within.
