Famous Failures

Failure and Success have something in common, it’s called Risk. Actually Failure and Success are just outcomes of Risk but we tend to look at Risk more associated with Failure than Success. You can’t have one without the other.

Whenever I think of Failure and Success, I remind myself of people like Michael Jordan who, when cut from his High School basketball team, went home and cried but as we know, later went on to become arguably one of the best NBA players in history. Or Walt Disney who was once fired from a newspaper that though he “lacked creativity.”

If either one of these individuals had let their defeat stop them from risking then they never would have been able to realize their true potential and purpose.

I hope you won’t stop either.
