July 31 Quote of the Day

Failure doesn’t mean you’re a failure. It just means you haven’t succeeded yet.
Robert Schuller

Some of the best entertainment to be had can be found while watching a group of 1st and 2nd graders during basketball practice. That basket is waaaaay up there. Do they care? No!! They believe in themselves.  They can throw that ball at the basket 10 or 15 times before they actually hit it. They may pout a few times in the process but they don’t quit.

Then suddenly, inexplicably, the ball actually hits the basket.

 

Smiles and cheers erupt! They were successful. They knew they would be. They have learned what somehow we adults have forgotten. Just because you failed once or twice doesn’t make you a failure. It just means you’re success is delayed a bit. Keep trying.
