A quote i got from a book that i still haven't finished reading because of my busy schedule, Well what does this mean well i think it means that a person should be more perseverance in life not quitting all the time because failure happens a person will not understand the true meaning of success if he or she has not failed in life and that this will be were a stand is made to just push till you get to where you wanna be

lol. Of course. Failure is the life's way of telling you that you did something wrong. I still remembered, in one of the books that I've read, where the author said, if you didn't experienced many failures, then you didn't try much at all. It means, the more you try, the more you fail, the more you learn and the more you're nearing success. Of course, once you fail in one, try to do something different the next time you try again so that you won't go in circles. Anyways, winners never quit that's why it seems that winners don't take failures too seriously at all. But know what? I noticed something. Winners would sacrifice more compared to others. If they fail, they're proud of it. If they sacrifice less and fail, they feel worse about it. For some reason, that's just the way they are. It amuses me but it's something that's beautiful about them, no?

I was thinking the same thing--"How can I become like them?" And yeah, it'll be a great story to tell the others--one's game with life like getting millions or getting nothing in investments. I mean, the story have to be epic, whether epic fail or epic win as long as one placed everything on the line and did his best it's a great story. I sometimes wonder if it's like this story of mine of how I cashed out my first $30(this is big enough for me considering that I don't earn at least $1 a day that time and had just started recently in investing) in JBP and I placed them all in one program that suddenly turned scam the next few weeks. It sucks but I learned quite a bit after that. For some reason I don't feel bad about me losing that money--despite that I was frustrated at first. Maybe it's because I think that I can still do better next time. And the next time it won't be just $30. And that I am sure that I can make more in the future and not fail again. I mean, at least I lost money in the beginning, right? The sooner the better than later and lose it all since I didn't learn anything in the beginning.

Ouch that must have really hurt the first couple of days, well as the great saying says , no pint in crying over spilled milk right and at least you have learned a valuable lesson here is that you will never entrust your money to easily next time and the next time you do invest you will be more cautious about things. And yeah at least you were only able to loose this amount not more and not when you are so hooked already.

Hi! you are right there deo, a real winner don't quit immediately, because in life we can win and we can fail. If we quit for every failure, then we could not proceed and move to where we want to go. Life is a journey and through that journey we can encounter failures and success. Failures are similar to mistakes, so all we have to do is learn from it, the next time we do the same, we can do it correctly and we can be sure of success. Life after all is a learning process, so lets look at every failure as a challenge we should strive to win.

Hi there triplejazz, Yeah like the guy from criminal minds said fail the first time , learn then fail again but fail better, so you know as you said life is full of winnings and failures the only differences between you or me or the other guy is? Who quits earlier, who quits later and lastly the one who didn't quit.

That's right. You can't understand success if you haven't experienced failure, just like not having a redo button because you don't have an undo button. Failure is important since that's when you learn important things. You make a mistake, you learn something from it, and this makes you better. Sort of like leveling up in a experience-based role-playing game.

WOW great comparison most of our genre and the younger one's will understand this comparison my friend kudos to you, well yeah failures they are not something to cry own since they are already pain in our ego's and in our minds so we should get a reward from it since we are already in pain so analyze the mistakes and just move forward and the next time will be owned.

I try to live by the 3 "P's" - Patience, Persistence and Perseverance. Everybody fails in something they try in life, but that is what it takes to learn how to be a winner. People who are successful have failed many times. That is why they don't take failures too seriously. Successful people keep trying until they find something that works. You are right they are not quitters. It sounds like you understand to never give up and keep on trying with a smile on your face!

Well , I didn't go to the salsa club for a month now because some girls there I don't like to see , they reject my dancing request... Your post has just brought back some will to me and I will go and ask some new girls to dance. Maybe I will finally find a new friend. Many failures with girls just made me less and less happy to go to the salsa dance club. Less courage to start talking with them ... I hope this time it will flow better. Thanks for reminding me that quote. People , especially guys , have to addopt that quote when trying to get to know ladies.

Hi there stringer, Well it is true that as guys we need a certain amount of courage and wit to be able to get the women of our dreams but with this quote it will surely fire you up and get what you want in life a person to be with.

I think there is an old video clip that can put things in a better perspective for everyone : That video clip is a song called "scrape" and it was made by an old band named Unsane. You see 3 minutes and 21 seconds of skateboard accidents that are painful to watch. Only the last episode has a successful skateboard trick that ends up with no injury. Unfortunately , I can't find the lyrics anywhere. If one thinks to give up after failing some times , he better watch that video clip and see some people that suffer much more and they keep trying until they make it.

Hey there stringer wow that must have hurt for the skater I think i will watch that right now, i just hope that my internet can keep up with me wanting to see it. Anyway thanks for this i think it sends a strong message that hurt is temporary if you struggle till the end of it all then you would be successful.
