Failure Does Not Define Your Life

But how you respond to failure does.

At various times and points in life, everyone fails. So failure does not define your life — because everyone fails sometimes.

How you respond when you fail will be what defines your life.

Some people will quit trying because they are so afraid to fail again.

But some people try again and again. It’s not because they aren’t afraid to fail — they are. They understand that their failures do not define them. They will be defined by how they respond to failure.

And so they keep trying.

So what will you do?
