“As a business owner, as a man, as human beings, failure is high in your agenda especially when you want to get to the next agenda.”
“Failure – it’s a difficult thing to kind of get to grips when you first experience it. As you become more experienced, you don’t dwell on so much because you understand it’s part of the process.”
“When dealing with failure, you gotta look at how you handle your emotions around, what is it that you’re going for.”
“When you fail, do not change the goal but change the way that you’re gonna get there.”
“We were meant to fail because we did not prepare.”
“I wouldn’t change my experience from what I went through because I learned so much from it.”
“Remember failure is feedback, it’s not the end of the world.”
“Everytime that I face my fears, I know that I am simply going to another level because I’m willing to accept that I want to face them.”
“As long as your breathing, as long as you’re here on earth, you have not failed, you have opportunities to go again.”
