Choosing Failure over Success

Monday, May 26th, 2014

Would you ever consider choosing failure over success? I would. I’d rather be a failure at something I enjoy than a success at something I hate.

Flavor of Success

Monday, April 21st, 2014

I agree wholeheartedly with Truman Capote who said, “Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor. I find success particularly sweet whenever I have experienced initial failure that was followed by a moment of recognition and ended in success, which I like to attribute to my own clever intervention.”

Life is a juggling game

Monday, November 18th, 2013

Life is a juggling game according to Brian Dyson, CEO of the Coca Cola Enterprises. It requires five balls. He calls them: work, family, health, friends, and spirit. In order to be successful in life, you must keep all five balls in the air. You will find that work is a rubber ball. If you accidentally drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls–family, health, friends, and spirit–are made of glass. If you drop one of them, it will instantly get scuffed, nicked, or even shattered. Become a skilled juggler, and you will lead a happy, balanced, and successful life.
