I have Successes. I have Failures.

Why this odd affirmation helps me.

What often matters is total wins, not wins vs. losses.

Obviously, this isn’t always true. A batter only gets 3 strikes before they have to go sit back down and wait their turn again. If I am picking a surgeon, I most definitely care how many procedures are complete successes versus how many have complications.

I have successes. I have failures.

About the author: I write and think often about achievements, successes, failures, including an audio book: Quotes for Achievement, and my newest book is meant to inspire underemployed or unemployed folks with both practical tips and personal stories. Out-of-Work to Making Money, 21 Comeback Stories Every Job Hunter Should Hear is currently available on Amazon (coming soon to Audible)
