I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions, I have been entrusted to take the game's winning shot...and missed. And I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And this is why...I succeed.
Thomas Edison had over 3000 failures before making a light bulb. Colonel Sanders peddled his "secret recipe of herbs and spices" to hundreds of people before finding someone to take a chance on it. Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen were rejected 123 times with the very successful book, Chicken Soup For The Soul.
Sadly most of us give up long before we experience anything like the people mentioned above. Yet every failure brings us one step closer to success. Dare to try again when things don't work the first time...or the second or third or more. When you believe in yourself, success will find you.
IT IS ALL IN YOUR HEAD!
