If your current get-rich project fails, take what you learned and try something else. Keep repeating until something lucky happens. The universe has plenty of luck to go around; you just need to keep your hand raised until it's your turn. It helps to see failure as a road and not a wall.
When most people hit failure, they give up, but good entrepreneurs simply treat failure as a learning experience and use it to fuel and inform their next move.
Ideology, politics and journalism, which luxuriate in failure, are impotent in the face of hope and joy.
P. J. O'Rourke
Failure is good. It's fertilizer. Everything I've learned about coaching, I've learned from making mistakes.
Once you start a working on something, don't be afraid of failure and don't abandon it. People who work sincerely are the happiest.
Artists, in theory, should not be limited to their personal experience, culture, identity, and worldview. But they must also accept that the degree of difficulty in imagining beyond their own borders is steep, and the failure rate is high.
The most effective leaders are actually better at guarding against danger when they acknowledge it that it exists. Cowards, in contrast, cling to the hope that failure will never happen and may be sloppy in the face of danger – not because they don't acknowledge that it exists, but because they are just too afraid of it to look it in the eye.
Show me a good and gracious loser and I'll show you a failure.

Ana Patricia Botin
