Four things come not back: the spoken word, the spent arrow, the past, and the neglected opportunity.

Failure and persistence

Don’t let any failure make you into a failure. Use it as another step to success.

You attempted something and it didn’t work. Rather than holding you back from another attempt, let that experience prepare you for your next attempt.

You tried fifteen times and nothing worked. Do you have what it takes for number sixteen and beyond?

To be strong enough to achieve, you must be persistent enough to pick yourself up after each disappointment, including this one. Otherwise, that valuable experience you just gained will be lost.

The only things that can ever have value to you are the things you’ve invested yourself in. Each setback is an opportunity to invest more, and to enlarge the size of your eventual reward.

Throughout history, success has been built with a combination of failure and persistence. Continue that legacy, and build some great new success of your own.

— Ralph Marston
