Failure is good

Failure is not final!

1.    Never let failure be final. Keep on failing forward. The greatest risk in life is to quit after a few failures. Failure is necessary and an integral part of success.

2.    There is no competition for a man with a dream. Our dreams are what give us the fuel to keep pressing on. The future belongs to those who can see and pursue opportunities before they are obvious. When the common man can see and understand the opportunity; the opportunity is no longer an opportunity.

3.    We become what we think. People don't suffer from lack of money; they suffer from broken thinking. We don’t lack time; we lack the ability to prioritize and live a life based on our priorities and not on our obligations. Busy and stressed people accumulate obligations.

4.    We are all in the education business. Start investing time in your education and the education of those around you. When you help change someone's life you get a loyal friendship back.

5.    Look for security in the right place. Security today is in the quality of our thinking and speed of our learning and sharing. Choose the right race and go full throttle. Those who take swift action always leave those that don't breathing the dust.

6.    Leave a legacy. We are all on this earth temporarily to reflect, to love and to leave a legacy. Knowing and not doing is like preparing the soil and not planting. Will you just do it?

7.    Follow Him. Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Leaders are precious, followers priceless. 

You can be part of the needed leadership revolution by sharing these nuggets with others.

We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give. Be a giver in a world of takers.

Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
