Another great Influencer quote on recovering from failure

Here’s my favorite quote from one of the Influencer blog posts on how to recover from failure by Maxfield:

Did you know that successful people fail more often than losers do? It makes sense, right? They try more things, riskier things, and set their goals higher. So they fail more often, but they also succeed more often. Successful people take failures in stride. In fact, they learn from failures. They use their failures to adjust their strategies so that each failure brings them closer to a success.

I had given up for years because I had been focused on my failures. But now I see those failures as bringing me closer to success.

    I look at my life that way too. Like I wouldn’t be who I am today without all the crap and messes I made in the past :)
