Success

“When you enter a mindset, you enter a new world.  In one world – the world of fixed traits – success is about proving you’re smart or talented.  Validating yourself.  In the other – the world of changing qualities – it’s about stretching yourself to learn something new.  Developing yourself.  In one world, failure is about having a setback.  Getting a bad grade.  Losing a tournament.  Getting fired.  Getting rejected.  It means you’re not smart or talented.  In the other world, failure is about not rowing.  Not reaching for the things you value.  It means you’re not fulfilling your potential.  In one world, effort is a bad thing.  It, like failure, means you’re not smart or talented.  If you were, you wouldn’t need effort.  In the other world, effort is what makes you smart or talented.  You have a choice.  Mindsets are just beliefs.  They’re powerful beliefs, but they’re just something in your mind, and you can change your mind.” ~ Carol Dweck, Mindset

“If I fail more than you do, I win.  Built into this notion is the ability to keep playing.  If you get to keep playing, sooner or later you’re gonna make it succeed.  The people who lose are the ones who don’t fail at all, or the ones who fail so big they don’t get to play again.” ~ Seth Godin

“He who hopes to avoid all failure and misfortune is trying to live in a fairyland; the wise man realistically accepts failures as a part of life and builds a philosophy to meet them and make the most of them.  He lives on the principle of ‘nothing attempted, nothing gained’ and is resolved that if he fails he is going to fail while trying to succeed.” ~ Wilfred Peterson, The Art of Living
