Byron’s Favorite Quotes:
Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success but it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you find success. -“ Thomas J Watson “
I feel like as people we forget that success isn’t a straight line, sometimes it may take a few turns and bends before it lines up. We should remember those curves and bends or â€œFailuresâ€ are what help us succeed
