Failure – Simply Steps Toward Success

Success consists of going from failure to failure
without loss of enthusiasm.
~Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill is one of the most enigmatic figures of 20th Century history in the Western World. Depending on what you read about him and who wrote it he could be portrayed as a drunken boar or a brilliant leader. Regardless of how your historical looking glass views him, the wisdom in his insight should lay a foundation for our view of both success and failure.

In the tenuous moments of the Second World War, European survival hinged on the pure guts of the British people. Churchill led that country and the rest of the world through some of the darkest days with pure courage and resolve. Each of the “darkest days” in our lives can only be overcome by the same courage and the same resolve.

Temporary failures cannot steal your enthusiasm, your zeal for life, your hope. Choose to see them as the merely the steps you climb on your journey to success.
