Failure

Postby Tituba » Sun Jul 26, 2009 9:36 pm

I was watching Foodtv's Next Food Network Star and one of the contestants had a great quote: "You shouldn't fear failure. You should fear succeeding at the wrong thing. I may fail, but I'm failing at the right thing." - Melissa d'Arabian

I read another one on a tweet, I think from the same source: "I may fail, but I'm failing at the right thing." Contestant Melissa.

That IS a great quote. On the wrong road and moving fast... wasn't that Barbara's way of saying it?
'Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how.
We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.'

What Barbara said was "You shouldn't work hard for what you don't want." DJ - the second quote was actually part of the quote I posted. I forgot that part. I was actually scribbling it down at 2am while fixing a client's PC and got some of it. I was able to fix a complicated PC issue and went to sleep feeling really proud of myself. The quote was the icing on the cake!
