By Alfred Adler
My scars tell a story. They are reminders of when life tried to break me but failed.
Good Morning!!! You never count the number of times you fall. You simply count the number of times you get up. And that’s what matters most.
If you haven’t been able to achieve something, today is the best time to start working towards it again. Good Morning.
Try and fail but don’t fail to try. Good Morning.
I worship individuals for their highest possibilities as individuals and I loathe humanity for its failure to live up to these possibilities.
What is courage? Courage is the willingness to risk failure…There is only one danger I find in life, and that, indeed, is a real one. You may take too many precautions.
Nobody adopts antisocial behavior unless they fear that they will fail if they remain on the social side of life.
No experience is a cause of success or failure. We do not suffer from the shock of our experiences, so-called trauma – but we make out of them just what suits our purposes.
It is the individual who is not interested in his fellow men who has the greatest difficulties in life and provides the greatest injury to others. It is from among such individuals that all human failures spring.
All failures are so because they lack social interest.
All failures – neurotics, psychotics, criminals, drunkards, problem children, suicides, perverts, and prostitutes – are failures because they are lacking in social interest.
It is possible to fail in many ways…while to succeed is possible only in one way.
The only difference between success and failure is the ability to take action.
If we don’t succeed, we run the risk of failure.
All wars signify the failure of conflict resolution mechanisms, and they need post-war rebuilding of faith, trust and confidence.
I firmly believe that unless one has tasted the bitter pill of failure, one cannot aspire enough for success.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a model maker, a potter, a dancer, a programmer, a writer, a political activist, a teacher, a musician, a milliner, whatever. It’s all the same. Making is making, and none of it is failure.
Failure is always an option.
Rejection isn’t failure. Failure is giving up. Everybody gets rejected. It’s how you handle it that determines where you’ll end up.
We all learn lessons in life. Some stick, some don’t. I have always learned more from rejection and failure than from acceptance and success.
