“Failure is just a few seconds away from success.” ―John Flanagan, The Battle for Skandia.
Failure is only a few seconds away from success.
It may not seem like it, but before success befalls you, just moments before, it was nothing more than failure. Success doesn’t seem like this, mainly because we don’t “see” the light of success being flipped on, but there is always a pivotal point where that switch is flipped. And before that time, you were strategically failing.
This is a reminder to keep going, especially when the going gets tough. When the going gets tough, that’s a sign that you are on the right path. After all, anything labeled “success” is only considered such because it is hard, usually really hard, to attain.
If success were as simple as pushing a button, it wouldn’t be called “success.”
Seek out what’s hard, then remind yourself that you may be just seconds away from success at every point.
