“There are no secrets to success,” said retired U.S. Army General Colin Powell, “It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure.”
None of us can go through life without failing at something at some point. Whether it’s at work, at home or anywhere else, you simply aren’t going to succeed at everything you do, every time. Some failures can obviously be far more painful to deal with than others, but regardless of the type of failure, the most important thing is how you respond. Essentially, you can either pick yourself up and get back on the horse or you can walk away and never ride again. The choice you make is what defines you as a person.
