Thoughts to Ponder…

Things have been a bit scattered around here lately, so sorry for the intermittent posting. Summer tends to be that way anyway, but I also had a huge convention last weekend and am in the throes of preparing for my sessions at the KMTA Conference this weekend. I came across a couple quotes that I found quite thought-provoking, so I thought I’d share them with you:

“I believe that a lack of drive is not the main reason a person fails to live up to his potential. Rather, it is a combination of two things:
1) an inability to discern what his path to success looks like, and
2) a belief that he does not have what it takes to succeed.”

~Dr. Jeff Myers

and this one:

“We pay a heavy price for our fear of failure. It is a powerful obstacle to growth. It assures the progressive narrowing of the personality and prevents exploration and experimentation. There is no learning without some difficulty and fumbling. If you want to keep on learning, you must keep on risking failure—all your life.”

~John W. Gardner

The latter came from this page of quotes on failure. Any thoughts? Do you agree or disagree with these sentiments?

Share and enjoy!
