Learning From Failure: An Important Part of Success

"This organization does not tolerate failure"

Failing at something is often seen as a stigma rather than as a learning experience.  It is impossible to succeed at everything at life but the fault is to make any failure seem larger than it actually is.  Treat it as an opportunity for growth, as have these famous personalities!

I can accept failure, everyone fails at something.  But I can't accept not trying.
Michael Jordan

My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.
Abraham Lincoln

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
Theodore Roosevelt

It's fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.
Bill Gates

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. 
Winston Churchill

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.
 Robert F. Kennedy

The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.
Henry Ford

You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.
Beverly Sills

Failure is so important. We speak about success all the time. It is the ability to resist failure or use failure that often leads to greater success. I've met people who don't want to try for fear of failing. 
J.K. Rowling

When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important. 
Ellen DeGeneres

People think that the opposite of success is failure, but it's not. Failure is part of the process of success. 
Randy Gage

Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success. 
Dale Carnegie


Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. 

Have you ever failed at something in your life?  Just like a child that fails at his first attempt at walking, it's persevering that overcomes all obstacles that may be in the way.
